Excellent compliment to the white and grey cabinets.Louise P on Dec 26, 2016When installed, does this tile appear true white or does it have a grey or green tint?BEST ANSWER: It has a grey tint. I can send you a picture of the finished bathroom if desired. I added a red glass accent tile which friends liked. The cabinet is grey, the floor tiles white with a slight gray grain running through it. I'm very happy with my bathroom!
Paula B.Can I use sanded grout with these tiles if I am using 3/16" spacers?

But I would take a few scraps and try the sanded grout on them that should give you your answet.
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
