I also needed it to match with my sage green vanity.Oliver P on Mar 9, 2017Can these be used for horizontal surfaces?BEST ANSWER: Not knowing where you plan to use them, I would only say they are glass so anywhere items would be placed on top of them might not be the best use of these tiles. They could crack if a heavy object were placed on them less than carefully. Mine were used as a kitchen backsplash and I made sure to have under counter lighting to show them at their best. Lots of compliments and wow colors. I really think they are best suited for wall space to give full effect.How many tiles in sample?BEST ANSWER: The sample is 1/4 the full tile or 9 tiles. We put it on a kitchen backsplash and it's stunning. Shows up best with under cabinet llighting.do you carry 4x4 glass tiles?BEST ANSWER: I don't know if this comes in 4x4, but I installed this as a backsplash in a very neutral kitchen in a condo we purchased. It's great as is, but when we turn on the under counter lighting it is spectacular. Lots of favorable comments. If you could get 4x4 I don't think the impact would be as colorful simply because of the size. If, however, you plan to cover a feature wall, then it might work. I used the recommended grout color as well. Hope this helps. Love, love, love it!
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.INSTALLATION
