Overview

Design Elements

Roman Collection Desert Tan 1x2 Glass Tile

This gorgeous mosaic blend, composed of rich Travertine marble & crushed glass, is hand pressed and hand filled. Each glass chip is hand pressed and then filled with colored crushed glass chips to create an intensely faceted surface that will capture and reflect light, making it look like a thousand tiny glimmering diamonds. Great to use as a backsplash, accent wall in bathroom or any decorated spot within your home.

I think I like this one but sample piece was too small. Need a whole sheet to get a better idea before making a choice.

The recommended grout for Roman Collection Desert Tan 1x2 Brick Glass Tile appears to be very pink in tone. Can you recommend an alternative more neutral, softer, beige grout color?
Jennifer J on Jun 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Jennifer,
I used this tile for a large backsplash with the recommended Biscuit non-sanded grout and it wasn't pink in hue at all. I think it will fit your more neutral, beige color definition. Turned out really beautiful and my design clients are thrilled. They get lots of compliments. I also used the Groove Pencil Crema Marfil Tile Liner to end the backsplash on one side to finish it off.
I am confused about the Travertine component. Do this mean that this tile is somewhat porous?
Ruth B on May 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The travertine pieces do have the irregular holes/grooves in them that are filled with grout when you apply it. It's always recommended to apply a sealer to the tile & grout. It's really beautiful when installed.
Installation
SUBSTRATE

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.
  • Apply thin-set using a trowel as recommended by the manufacturer. 
  • 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.
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.
