It's beautiful and very good quality.Christina B on Apr 25, 2016I want to make a narrow backsplash on the wall behind the bathroom vanity. What would I surround the tile with? Should I use a pencil and if so, what matches?BEST ANSWER: This tile cuts very nicely and cleanly--we don't have anything on the top (horizontal) or side (vertical) edge as it meets the vanity countertop and it looks great. I would say that if you did want to get a pencil type border, anything in the white marble family would look the best. I believe they also make borders in glass but matching the blues might be difficult if it is not from the same manufacturer. Good luck!Will this work in the shower on the walls and or floor? Is it slippery?BEST ANSWER: It would definitely work on the shower walls - we selected the longer bricks for an accent in our shower and used this as a backsplash by the sinks. Beautiful. I would not use it for a shower floor, though. I would worry that glass tile would be too slippery, as you suggest.

Substrate should be free of cracks. If used in a wet area you must waterproof. Tile must be sealed.INSTALLATION
