Shaken or Stirred?
Bourbon and Scotch may be best-sellers, but the drink of choice for many whiskey connoisseurs is increasingly often a glass of rye. Up until recently, this historic American spirit was fading into obscurity. Liquor stores and bars usually stocked just a few old, dusty bottles. But there has been a miraculous rebirth of the rye category, and drinkers now prize its big, spicy and brash flavors. Distillers are now struggling to keep up with demand.

Chose this to be used as a subtle accent with white subway tiles and expect this will tie everything together with a bit of texture.Kenna D on Feb 22, 2015My installer just came to look at this backsplash job. His concern was the outlets and how this tile hits at the outlets? Any suggestions so there isn't big gaps around the curves? I've looked at the few pictures that people have posted of their finished jobs and can't see that there is any issue. Any thoughts about doing the tile around outlets? Thanks!BEST ANSWER: Hello Janet,
This is a wonderful tile. We constantly get good comments on the installation. I used this in two places. One for around our fireplace; the original purchase reason. And second, as part of a backsplash on a house we flipped. For the backsplash, we used it in conjunction with a thin clear glass tile with this loft curve a center strip. The center strip with this tile was at the top of the outlets. If you have a good installer, they should be able to fit in glass pieces to fit close to the outlets so there is no gap. Sorry, I cannot seem to attach any pictures here or give you my contact info. Be assured, this tile looks Fabulous!Is there an edge piece that you can get for the Loft curve tiles?BEST ANSWER: Thank you all for your answers! My backsplash comes out to the end of my cabinets and it faces in to the dining room, so, I really feel I need to put an end piece just to make it look finished. Your answers have helped me a lot!Did anyone use grout when applying this tile? It says that you don't need any, but, on the sample I ordered, you can see the netting behind it in some spots. That would be awesome not to have to deal with grout, but, I don't want to cheapen the look by skipping that step. Thanks for any help in answering this! :)BEST ANSWER: This tile does not need to be grouted - once it is flush on the wall you will not see the netting any longer.OK for shower?BEST ANSWER: Well, yes as in the metal will not be effected by water and the glass tile will also be fine. It is beautiful and I love it in my kitchen (as an accent row in the back splash) HOWEVER... it may be hard to keep clean and I would be concerned because grouting is very difficult which could make keeping this waterproof very difficult. It is very dimensional and will create a lot of spaces for water to pool. If you are planning to use as an accent and keep it up high enough in the shower to avoid getting a lot of water on it it should be fine. I would not suggest using it as the field tile. I used glass subway tile as the field tile which worked perfectly.
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
- To avoid affecting the color of glass tile, White modified thin-set such as Bostik Glass Mate is highly is recommended for all installations.
- This tile does not require grout. You would have to water down the thin-set a little bit and the excess thin-set will act as the grout line.
- Apply thin-set using a trowel as recommended by the manufacturer.
- Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes.
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.
