Looks beautiful!

I was looking for a larger tile. Something that would give me texture and depth without adding color. This tile will be perfect for my small cottage style kitchen backsplash.

Simply breathtaking...and a twist on lantern/arabesque tile. Had my eye on this for two years now, via Pinterest. It's finally going in my kitchen of my new house!
April F on Oct 2, 2016
This tile is gorgeous and is very unique. I have not found any tile this beautiful here in my city or online elsewhere.
I am very thankful to have this pattern in my home.
Thank you Tilebar!

Building a new house and am using this in my kitchen.
Carol E on Apr 28, 2016
After receiving the sample we decided this is just what we want for a feature on the kitchen backsplash.
Nancy T on Apr 11, 2016
Getting a sample to see if it will match other items:)
Kelle K on Mar 15, 2016
the pattern is a close match to the tin ceilings in our building. Just beautiful!
Patty R on Feb 17, 2016
I think it is beautiful and will go wonderfully with our grey farmhouse cabinets.
Rosalynn R on Oct 24, 2015
the pattern and texture will look gorgeous as an inlay above the cooktop in my new custom home. i'm pairing it with a grey crackle subway tile.
kelly s on Jul 29, 2015
The samples I received of this tile were beautifully ornate but classic at the same time.
Rachel M on Jul 19, 2015
LOVE LOVE LOVE this tile! Looks gorgeous on wall!!
Jessica K on Jul 2, 2015
They are very large and much more dramatic than the traditional white subway tile.
Catherine L on Jun 29, 2015
I liked the white color and am using it interspersed with the the plain Bianco Ceramic tile on a kitchen backsplash. Had just the right amount of pattern to add interest without being overwhelming.
Amanda C on Jun 1, 2015

Amanda H on Apr 15, 2016
would this tile go with cambria praa sands quartz countertops as a backsplash?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, white tiles coordinate beautifully with that countertop.
Recommended grout color: white or contrasting?
Jessica K on Jun 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I used black grout for contrast and it looks fabulous!
Do you have subway tiles, chair rail, and pencil moldings that match this color?
Donna D on May 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This Bianco Ceramic tile is glazed in the same basic white as subway tile, the generic 4x4 bathroom tiles, and other white tiles purchased at TileBar and another place. I did not find pencil moldings at TileBar that matched, but I found them somewhere else. I plan to use the Byzantine Florid tiles as a feature within a white backsplash in my kitchen, and although it is not yet installed, I have purchased all the tiles and they match very well.
I would like to use this tile as an accent with the plain version, but I am unsure how many I would need to order. We have a large kitchen remodel in process and I would like this tile to continue up the wall around our new double window. My contractor said we had roughly 60 square feet. I am unsure how to combine for a new pattern. Could someone help? Thanks!
Stephanie I on Sep 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Stephaine.

I fell in love with this tile the minute I saw it. It was the perfect combination of WOW with classic white. Up against my walnut countertop it had the perfect POP that I was looking for. My contractor also wondered how we were going to "end" the tile. I tried to copy and paste a picture of what he did but can't seem to make that happen.
If you can imagine one of these tile spit in half is how he ended it on the sides. Then he use a thin metal strip to cap off the sides. It is subtle and does not take away from the tile and gives it a polished finished look on each side. I used the tile calculator that this website provides and it worked pretty well. My contractor estimated an 10% overage for possible waste and breakage. Because the tile layed out so well in the space above my counter we had a fair amount left over. I got lucky and found a small ajoining area in my utility room that I was able to use that tile. As for your pattern combination. With all my tile projects, my contractor and I laid it out on the floor first and played with it like a puzzle. That way you see the outcome without any surprises.

Sure hope this helped. You're going to love how it looks when its done.

all the best

I plan on using this byzantine arabesque bianco tile for my kitchen backsplash but wondered how to finish off the edges? Do you use a 1/4 round or something to complete it? Does tile bar carry this?
Serra on Sep 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: After weighing several options, I decided the best thing to do was to cut the edge tiles in half, completing the line. They are a little thicker than most wall tiles on the edges only, and I am using a pencil tile to rim the edge, followed by a bullnose. They cut very easily with a wet saw. I do not own the score-and-snap type tile cutter. Be careful with cut edges and do them face up, because the tile body is darker than the white and the surface glaze is prone to chip away if it is cut face down. They do cut easily and don't shear off at odd angles, like some tiles I have used.
I want to use the Florid Arabesque Bianco over my range and do white subway tiles for the rest of the backsplash. Which white subway tiles will match?
A shopper on Dec 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I did the exact same thing. I just got white subway tile. I was nervous about this arabesque tile not matching what it was transitioning to, so I made sure to order the 12" picture frame tiles to help offset any color differences. It was the perfect solution and worked well. I got my white subway tile from another source, not tilebar.com.
What benjamin Moore paint color white did you use to match these tiles?
Jennifer M on Dec 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I was actually looking for a white with a hint of blue and after many sample paintings, I ended up using Sweet Illusion. My cabinets are white with brushed nickel hardware and I alternated the florid arabesque Bianco with the solid Arabesque and I'm so,pleased with it. We placed two plain tiles, then a textured one.
My kitchen cabinets are antique white and was hoping this is more of a bone or cream tile. Is this an off white or bright white tile?
A shopper on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is a pure bright white tile. The 3D pattern on the front dose create some shadow but its definitely still bright white tile.
What size joint have others used to install this? I am considering 1/16" or 1/8". Would love to see installed photos as well. Thanks.
R S on Jan 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: RS
My contractor and I decided on 1/16. We then chose a dove gray color grout. The grout color was just enough to allow the tiles to stand out from each other without overwhelming the beauty of the tiles themselves. When only my under cabinet lights are on, and these tile being the high gloss brilliant white they are, It's a show stopper.
Hope this helps.

Is this tile the same size and shape as other brands? I would like to insert into another brand as an accent.
A shopper on Mar 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello, this Arabesque tile is available in 2 colors; white and pale blue. It's best to use Arabesque tiles from the same collection when combining them in an installation. There are countless "arabesque" shape tiles on the market and they come in all sizes and shape variations. Unless you use tiles from the same "collection", it is highly unlikely they will fit together. Hope this is helpful. Regards, Lisa at Studio Tile & Stone in Melbourne, Florida
Does this tile come in other colors? Specifically grey?
C.C. F on Apr 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is the bianco color, it is white. But it also comes in a color called "Alice" which looks like it might be grey.. I would say you should either call customer service to as specifically about the Alice color. Or even order a sample. This is the most beautiful tile!!! It's very large. But it's absolutely gorgeous in my kitchen!!! Highly recommend:)
Can this be put in the shower?
Heather H on May 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I ordered the tile but I haven't received it yet. At least not in the white. I did get a sample of it in the light blue. I love the size and the details. If you're using the tile for accent pieces ,I think it would look classic and timeless yet unique. I can't imagine using this size of tile for a whole bathroom wall. If and when I recieve this tile in white I'm planning on using it for a kitchen backsplash against gray-blue stained cabinets and a Carrara marble counter top. Hope that helps.
What is the size of each individual piece?
A shopper on Oct 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Each piece is about the size of an adult hand.
Installation
SUBSTRATE

Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Tile should be installed over a clean, sound, and flat surface, free of contaminates including curing compounds. Substrate should be free of cracks. If used in a wet area you must waterproof. See manufacturer’s recommendation on a membrane for crack and water protection that is compatible with the setting material you are using. Expansion joints should be installed at all “changes in plane” in the tile work and where tile abuts restraining surfaces, therefore silicone caulking sealant must be installed in all corner joints in place of grout.

INSTALLATION
  • To avoid affecting the color of the tile, White modified thin-set such as Bostik Glass Mate is highly is recommended for all installations.
  • Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes. 
  • Grout joint should be a minimum of 1/16” and not butt set.
  • The trowel size you can use is a 9" Trowel - 1/16" square notch.
GROUTING
  • Grout joints should be packed full and free of voids and pits.
  • Clean excess grout as the work progresses before it has hardens completely.
  • Acids should never be used for cleaning grout haze.
  • Use a damp sponge for the final cleaning and to smooth out the grout joints.
  • It is recommended to use non-sanded grout.
  • It is recommended to use grout release, then grout the tile, then use a sealant to the tile such as our MP90
  • Highly recommended to purchase the Glass & Stone Installation/Maintenance Kit - http://www.TileBar.com/collection/tiling-supplies/glass-stone-tile-maintenance-package.html
CUTTING

The recommended cutting method is to use a wet saw with a diamond blade that is specifically for cutting glass. Edges can be sanded smooth after cutting.
