good match for counter top and doesn't show much splatter
Steve C on Aug 6, 2018
I need a full size sample to really see how it looks with our granite counter top. We have the tan brown granite which has black, white and a coppery brown in it. Hope it works!

Just a perfect combination of color, texture & patterns. Ordered a sample first. Tiles are about 1 cm wide with varied lengths. Will look beautiful with new uba tuba granite, honey pine cabinets and muted gold walls!!

Added pazazz for my kitchen backsplash accent.
Nanette O on Oct 18, 2016
My wife loves the colors and designs.
Michael M on Sep 4, 2016
after a long backsplash search, we settled on several strong contenders from the Arcadia series. Each complimented our quartz (Cambria "Darlington") counter and cabinets (DeWeiss bamboo "moss") nicely. We finally settled on Karri b/c of the copper strips and patterned stone pieces, both of which added a nice organic finish to our overall design choices.
diane c on Aug 12, 2016
Because it was a unique design and brought all the colors of our walls, cabinets, and counter together really nicely.
Jan O on Jul 8, 2016
It's a perfect compliment to our granite and stainless steel appliances. The on-line colors are very true and blends with the rust colors in our granite.
Linda M on May 4, 2016
looks the best so far with counter top
Linda B on May 2, 2016
Love the variations of color and the glass pieces pick up the light perfectly.

I loved the sample when I got it in mail.

Appears beautiful. Read the reviews
Deborah v on Nov 3, 2015
A stunning combination of all natural elements: metal, stone, and glass. The detailing on the metal adds interest and balance to the smooth surfaces of the stone and glass. Sophisticated, and elegant.

Why does one photo look like there is no grout and the other photo has grout?
Janet S on Sep 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have this tile in my kitchen, love it!! The pictures shown do not have grout in any of them that I’ve seen. I’ll try and post a picture in reviews of my backsplash. It won’t let me load one here. The only tip I will give is make sure a non sanded grout is used and that the tile is cleaned quickly and well as the grout gets caught in the flower design tiles. But I still get lots of compliments and still love how it looks.
What is needed for installation?
kari a on Dec 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is an excellent question! You need to make sure that you immediately wipe the grout off of the decorative tile before it dries, because it will not come out of the crevices after it dries. We had a installer put this in for us and he totally ruined our tiles. Please make sure that you're instaler knows what he's doing, cuz hours did not and then he ended up taking the finish off the tiles trying to get the hardened grout off of the top of the tiles that have the raised leaf .accentsiBoston
Can this tile be used as an accent in a shower?
Alice E on Sep 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend using this product in a shower, because of the wear and discoloration that water and moisture can cause in metal.
Did anyone use a trim and if so what tile was used for it?

BEST ANSWER: EnteMS International Emperador 3/4 in. x 12 in. Polished Marble Pencil Molding Wall Tiler an answer to this question.
How are these for cleaning? In a Kitchen I'm concerned about grease.
Roxi J on Feb 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: As long as you seal the tile and grout I don't forsee a major issue, however be prepared when you install the tile that getting the grout from around the decorative tiles is quite a hassle. I used the grout release prior to grouting the tile and I still needed to use a dental tool to remove the grout from around the leaves in the design. They are beautiful though. I have only received compliments about the tile. I used it as an accent tile in the kitchen and around my fireplace in the living room.
can this be used outdoors on a grill island?

Installation

GLASS TILE CHARACTERISTICS

This material is made of clear and transparent glass. The back of the glass tile is coated with the desired pigment(s) and a white protective coating visible from the back of the tile. The multi-layered protective coating is fired with the tile and ensures that the thin-set mortars will not be visible after installation. The pigments and glass are made from natural minerals and as such the firing process will cause slight variations in shades and size. All material is sorted according to ANSI standard A137 size tolerances and packaging is clearly marked with caliber and shade/tone/dye-lot.

 

GLASS INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

  • These instructions are meant to be a guide for most installations, under normal conditions. Please follow best practice instructions found in the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) 09300 Handbook for specific installation types.
  •  

    MATERIAL INSPECTION

    • We always recommend dry-fitting your pattern first to think about your cuts in advance and to make sure you like the pattern. This will also help you choose which pieces go where, which is especially helpful with tiles that have a lot of variation. Due to the nature of the material and production process it may be possible to see through the clear glass on certain angles which can appear as a lighter line along the edges of the glass. This is not a factory defect or deficiency of any kind in the material and should be expected by the end consumer. *Always use appropriate personal protective safety equipment when handling, drilling, cutting or grinding glass tile such as (but not limited to) eye, ear and hand protection.
    •  

      SUBSTRATE

      • Before you start tiling, make sure that whatever surface the tiles are being installed to will be strong and structurally sound. Cement board, concrete or drywall is best, as these surfaces can handle the moisture of the tiling process. Plywood should be avoided, since the wood will warp with the added moisture and it will also be less waterproof, even after tiling.
      •  

        INSTALLATION MATERIALS

          Thin-Set

        • To avoid affecting the color of the tile, white thinset such as Bostik PM is strongly recommended for all installations.
        • Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes.
        • Tools
          3/16" or 1/4" square notch trowel should be used when installing our glass material and ridges should be smoothed down with the flat side of the trowel prior to fixing the tiles in the mortar bed. Tiles larger than 3x3 should be back-buttered with a thin continuous layer of the thin set applied with the flat side of the trowel.

          Drying Time
          Glass tiles are non-porous: the moisture in the setting materials cannot migrate through the glass and must evaporate slowly through the joints. All setting material, even rapidest mortars need a longer time to cure. Allow thin-set mortar to dry completely for a minimum of 72 hours prior to grouting or otherwise interfering with the fresh installation.

          Cutting
          Use a glasscutter (score and snap) with a new diamond wheel for best results when cutting our glass tiles. Wetting the diamond wheel with oil before cutting will produce the smoothest cuts. In some cases it may be possible to use a wet-saw with a new, continuous rim diamond blade specifically designed for cutting glass. Do not use turbo or other notched blades designed for use with porcelain or ceramic as the teeth can cause a coarse cut, resulting in a heavily chipped edge. To cut angles without a wet saw or grinder, drill a small hole at the apex of the angle prior to cutting. In most cases, this will allow the use of a score and snap cutter and avoid small cracks that can happen at the angle. Cut edges and corners will be sharp. Always be sure to smooth the cut edges manually with a diamond hand pad or ceramic dressing stone.

          Drilling
          If possible, drill holes before installing tile. Drilling from both sides can ensure a cleaner finish if the hole will be visible after installation. Using a new diamond coring bit (for large holes) or spade bit (for small holes) with a diamond tip made for glass drilling will give the best results. Lubricating the bit and tile surface with a continuous spray of oil/water mix will prolong the life of bits and provide a better-finished edge. When possible, the use of a jig will ensure precise placement of holes to be drilled.

          When drilling holes for anchoring bolts, plumbing or any other dissimilar material always ensure a minimum of 1/8" clearance around the item is provided to avoid cracking due to disparate expansion and contraction rates or stress transfer.

           

          GROUTING

        • It is recommended to use grout release, then grout the tile, then use a sealant to the tile such as MP90
        • Non-sanded grout that is latex or polymer modified and compliant with A118.4 should be used for our glass material. If sanded grout must be used for technical or aesthetic reasons (such as with mosaics with larger grout joints), gentle application of grout with a soft rubber float is recommended to minimize the possibility of surface scratching. A mock up or testing installation should be executed to ensure results are acceptable.

          After grouting, wipe of excess surface grout with a slightly damp sponge - do not over wash. After initial wash has been allowed to haze, wipe once with minimal pressure at a 45-degree angle to joints and rinse sponge after wiping once with each side. Any remaining haze can be buffed off with a dry towel or cheesecloth after grout surface has dried sufficiently. Grout joints should be a minimum of 1/16” and not butt set. Clean excess grout as the work progresses before it has hardened completely. In the event that a grout haze forms, you can use an acid-free remover such as Deterdek to remove it. Acids should never be used for cleaning grout haze.

           

          CARE AND MAINTENANCE

        • Highly recommended to purchase the Glass Installation/Maintenance Kit, which contains all you need to maintain and care for your tiles.
        • . For normal care and maintenance of glass tile, wiping the surface with a damp sponge or clothe with water or a light vinegar solution is sufficient. If stronger cleaning is needed, a nonabrasive, neutral pH cleaner can be used.

          Glass tile may be damaged from impact with hard or heavy objects, which can lead to chipping or breakage causing sharp cutting edges that can lead to injuries. Always replace any damaged glass tiles immediately.
