Shaken or Stirred?

Contrary to popular belief, tequila is not cactus juice. The spirit is distilled from blue Weber agave. (And for the record, it should never come with a worm in the bottle.)

Why did you choose this?

choose this for the inconsistency in the tile to match a more vintage look. Haven't gotten it yet but excited to get it on the wall, and it got good reviews too!

This finish updates the subway tile look with greater reflectivity, if that doesn't sound too strange. The color also exactly matches our farmhouse sink, a Nantucket in biscuit.

The tile is simple, but has some uniqueness in that the shape/size are slightly different

I was looking for a cream colored subway tile on every possible website that sold subway tile. There weren't any. When we first got our sample of this, I chose it for the color not for the style. After really looking at it, we loved the unconventional look of the color and rustic style rather than your typical subway tile. I can't wait to see it up on my kitchen wall!!!

Wasn't easy, but decided on timeless and classic over trendy and flashy.

You staff recommended this tile to go with the Arcadia Solaria and I want to see a larger sample so I ordered one square foot rather than a one tile sample

It's looks hand made

texture and color worked the best. Look forward to receiving the product and installing it.

best looking handcrafted type tile, and more unique than typical subway tile
Kenneth F on Oct 24, 2015
Loved the look of the sample of the Lancaster Vanilla - I like that it has a hand made finish look to it. It's going to look great in the kitchen.

Matches nicely with our countertop.

personal preference for texture
Peter K on Jul 8, 2015
I chose this tile because of the polished look and how it will brighten the kitchen.

Subway tile is a classic and this particular one catches more light because the surface is not perfectly flat. The vanilla color blends easily with many color combinations.

could this be used as shower floor tile or will it be too slippery?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, I would not use it as a floor tile. It would be too slippery. Also, it is not exactly flat, but slightly uneven (not level) -- it really is only for walls. But it is a great tile for that. We are pleased with it as our backsplash.
I am close to purchasing the Lancaster Vanilla tile. What color grout would you recommend? I'm thinking I want a grout that blends rather than have a grout color that would stand out. Thank you.
Anita L on Oct 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We used Quartz Lock grout in a Birch color which blends well and compliments our counter top. If not Birch, I'd go with a Creme color if you don't want it to stand out.
Quartz Lock is a little spendy but highly recommended because you will never have to seal the grout and it is anti bacterial and anti mold. Care must be taken to follow the directions applying to small sections at a time. But it is well worth the extra money and time to do it once and forget it, unlike grout which needs to be resealed every year.
Is there a quarter round tile that matches the Lancaster vanillas subway tile?
A shopper on May 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I didn't see one, so my tile guy got a plain plastic strip at Menards that is used for tile installation. It finishes it off just fine. I was skeptical at first, but I was very pleased when the job was finished. I love this tile!
How many tiles equals a unit?
A shopper on Aug 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: A unit is the same as a square foot. 1 square foot equals one unit. There are (8) 3x6 tiles in a square foot/unit.
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.
