I would like to use in master bathroom grout line on floor. Will it hold up to normal wear?
easter a on Nov 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I used it as a backsplash for my kitchen and absolutely LOVE it. I doubt it would be good for a floor, because the tile is so could easily break if a high heeled shoe walked on it. Bare feet, probably fine. If you lay it where there is low traffic, you might be alright.
Is this real mother of pearl or glass?
Paul S on Sep 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have used this product several times. I believe it does have some glass which adds to the durablility.It can been put on to durarock to raise the height and be placed as a border, liner or dot along large field tiles.Its an awesome tile
Can this be used for a shower floor?
heidi s on Jul 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Heidi, I don't think that this would be a good choice for a shower floor. The tile is absolutely gorgeous, but it is very thin glass and also very smooth. I would be concerned about robustness and its being too slick for safety. Also, we usually count on the sanded grout between tiles to help make a shower floor safer and this tile really should be set with unsanded grout. We love it as the backsplash in our master bath, but wouldn't recommend it for a shower floor. Best of luck with your project! Kath
Is there a paper backing on it to install paper face up for ease?
marina s on Jan 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is a line white mesh holding all the little squares. The tiles are very very thin! I had a professional install these as I only ordered 2 extra tiles and didn't have room for error. If you look at the pictures you can see the mesh between the tiles. The tiles are lightly glues to the mesh, This is a delicate install
We noticed that this tile should not be submerged. Does this mean that it is not suitable for a shower wall? It will get very wet but not submerged unless the drain stops. Also can this tile be cleaned with Dow Scrubbing bubbles and other bathroom tile cleaning products? We have this tile in our kitchen as a back splash and in our laundry room and love it. We are now thinking about our shower. Any help would be appreciated.
A shopper on Mar 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We have it in our shower niche and as an accent band around the shower. It was installed 1.5 years ago and we have had no problems. We are an eco friendly household so we never use conventional cleaners that are filled with toxic chemicals. Too many cancer risks with conventional products. We use Bon Ami and an Eco fiendly scrubber with great results. Bon Ami is available at most strores. Mir is a powder cleaner like comet, but has a base of coconut instead of chemicals. It gets rid of soap scum in no time and has no scent!
what size is the sample?
A shopper on Jan 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 1/4 of a sheet. Approximately 6" X 6". I used as backsplash for ivory cabinets with pewter glaze. Tile is very thin and easy to work with. I ordered eight different ivory tile samples. This tile is a beautiful choice for off white cabinets.
Might I use this MoP tile for the countertop on a bathroom vanity?
Caitlin W on Jan 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Mother of pearl is very soft and delicate material. I have it on a wall in my bathroom and a decorative shelf that I do put some bubble bath (plastic) bottles and it doesn't get much wear and tear, as well as, the backsplash to my vanity where it is all holding up very well. Only you know how rough you are on your counter tops. I personally could probably "get away" with a MOP counter top because I am a very careful person, but my husband is like a bull in a china shop and there is NOW WAY I would put something so fragile in his path! LOL I hope this feedback gives you some insight. It is very very pretty BTW, but I would recommend using as an accent versus in a highly functional space however.
How many square feet in a sheet of mother of pearl tile?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It says in the specs that it's 1.12 x 1.12 a square. It was very pretty but very thin as in depth. Not llike a tile, just so you know.

Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Glass 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. Glass is reflective therefore any inconsistencies in the substrate will result in a poor installation. For pools and fountains we recommend installing a mortar bed according to TCA P601-98. EXPANSION AND CONTROL JOINTS PER TCA EJ171-05 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.

  • To avoid affecting the color of glass tile, White modified thin-set such as Bostik Glass Mate is highly is recommended for all installations.
  • Apply thin-set using a trowel as recommended by the manufacturer. 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Highly recommended to purchase the Glass Installation/Maintenance Kit -

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.
