Each one was very unique.What size grout line would you recommend? It is for a kitchen backsplash and will have white grout. Thanks!BEST ANSWER: We set the tiles as close together as possible using no spacers. Could not be happier with it. We used a warm grey grout that is super light and it looks incredible. The uneven edges of the tile really lend it to being a natural spacer.Wanting to use this Blanco Tile for our shower/bath.. curious what flook tile some of you used to pair with it?
(those of you that used in your bathroom). Thanks!BEST ANSWER: The Lancaster Bianco tile is so beautiful with a handmade feel to it that it really can go with anything on the floor! We chose a beautiful wood look gray porcelain tile called Centurywood in Dune, and its absolutely stunning. I also plan to update my bathroom using the lancaster bianco subway tile and will pair it with a morrocan pattern cement tile that is gray and white. (NOTE: we chose to keep the grout pure white so that it really is a beautiful neutral).Why is non-sanded grout recommended for this product? My contractor is insisting to use sanded grout for a 1/8" joint.BEST ANSWER: We recommend using non-sanded if going for 1/16" joints. That said, one's contractor/installer should always have the final say.Hi - I have White Springs granite and am considering this tile in Blanco. My granite has a lot of gray, black and brown plus cream. My cabinets are off white/cream. Modern Farmhouse/Country French theme. Would you recommend this tile?BEST ANSWER: It definitely would work well but I would recommend ordering a sample one of the Vanilla , and Dove, in addition to the Blanco sample so that you can hold it up to your kitchen cabinets, floor, etc. and get a better feel for it.Would you recommend the Lancaster subway tiles for a blacksplash in vanilla or Bianco with white/grey cararra marble counter tops? Difficult to see how yellow the vanilla is.BEST ANSWER: I would definitely recommend the Lancaster subway tile as a backsplash for white/grey carrara marble counter tops. The bianco tile is plain white and the vanilla has an ivory hue. I would also advise ordering a sample of each so you can see the actual tile before you make your decision.
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.

- 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.
