Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 3 answersWhy did you choose this?TileBar StoreI chose this tile because I love elongated diamond tiles. I was looking for something to replace the tile our builder put in because we did not care for it. The Nabi tile resembles elongated diamond tiles but is even fancier with the combination of the two shapes. I also like the pillow-like profile and the crackle glass which gives the tile additional texture. There is a lot going on with the design but it all works.Jessica F on Nov 25, 2016I chose this tile because I love elongated diamond tiles.

The pillowing makes it so we can't put the plate on top of tile and it looks odd to tile up to the switch plate? not sure what to do as the mortar is drying as I type this and the tile guy comes back to grout tomorrow.BEST ANSWER: Hi there, just seeing this. Our grout guy did a very good job laying them and then we used extra large face plates (they seemed to lay better) and used caulk to fill in any small gaps around the face plate meeting the grout. good luck
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.
- 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
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.
