I've used this on another project in combination with the flat Byzantine Bianco that makes an amazing pattern for a backsplash, bar, or bath. Our project will be featured on the Modernism Tour in Palm Springs -- A Fabulous Statement.
Avian R on Dec 11, 2018
I am doing this mixed with the non 3D version vertically behind a ventilation hood. The back splash is regular subway tile already.
Hilary S on Oct 27, 2018
We have a 1950's home and want something that hints at that time. Plus we wanted a white tile and not the typical subway look. I like the raised surface and tile size.
Diana B on Oct 3, 2018
beautiful tile ! i can't wait to have it installed on my two fireplaces!
Tamara W on Oct 1, 2018
not flat
ellen s on Sep 7, 2018
This tile has a clean, modern design, yet makes a slightly bigger statement than a simple subway.
Vivian R on Jun 28, 2018
Dimension added depth and character in a neutral color.
Farrah F on May 23, 2018
I really like the shape of the tile and how it's 3D.
Shalona H on Apr 30, 2018
sculptural qualities, might work in a 1950's house, for fireplace and kitchen backsplash
Diana B on Apr 25, 2018
My client loved this tile so much that she decided to use on on another wall in addition to what was already planned.
Anne S on Apr 11, 2018
different. having the different pictures showing the way the design can be used made all the difference.
Deonna F on Mar 24, 2018
Beautiful tile. Very good quality.
Terry A on Feb 28, 2018
I like the look of subway tile but I wanted it to have a pattern that was not busy. The 3D look of this tile makes a beautiful kitchen back splash.
Sharon T on Dec 20, 2017
I am pairing this 3D subway tile with the flat Byzantine Bianco tile to create a molded relief pattern to mirror the molded concrete shadow block found on homes in Palm Springs California
Michael N on Nov 24, 2017
Perfect look for kitchen
Stuart S on Nov 2, 2017
I love the 3 dimension look of the tile and the way it installed in the project photo for the fireplace because that's why I am installing the tiles! So glad I came upon these after searching for a few weeks.
Charlotte Y on Aug 11, 2017
I like the raised design
Aeysha C on May 16, 2017

it adds dimension to a big flat wall
Kristen C on Mar 2, 2017
This tile combines the timeless elegance of subway tile with modern looks.
Mary V on Feb 20, 2017
My wife liked it when she saw it on a remodeling show on TV. It is very different than most backsplash tiles we have seen. We are building a beautiful mountain home and decided to go for it. Happy wife, happy life!
Richard B on Feb 17, 2017
liked the 3 dimensional quality
Leslie K on Feb 15, 2017
Re-tiling our fireplace on our mid century modern home and this was perfect

They add textures, uniqueness, and beauty to the bathroom walls.
CARLOS A on Jan 8, 2017
We love the style, finish, and color for our kitchen backsplash.
Diane A on Dec 31, 2016
I've been in love with this tile since I first saw it. I've waivered on all my other tile choices but held steady on this for my kitchen. It's just beautiful!!
Joan W on Dec 22, 2016
Like the look.
Monica M on Oct 4, 2016
Clean, modern
Cindy S on Sep 27, 2016
I'm doing a mid mod reno and loved how this looked. i feel textured tile is the wave of the future. looks like Ann Sacks
Jody D on Sep 27, 2016
appreciated the elegance when paired with flat
Eric S on Aug 16, 2016
Love this design! Saw it on Fixer Upper on HGTV - Had to have it!
Marilyn B on Jul 24, 2016
I wanted something like subway tile, but with more visual texture. This fit the bill. Warning, though, the tiles we received were not all equal in length, and therefore could not be mixed with the matching flat tile nor laid out in a stacked pattern. Had to go with an offset pattern, but it still looks great.
Michelle L on Jul 12, 2016
Solid color with a bit of an edge to a plain white tile.
Karen P on Jun 6, 2016
clean lines, modern, texture
stephanie w on May 4, 2016
It's different, but has a clean and flowing look.
William B on Mar 27, 2016
Thanks for the assistance last week, Jacob! Great suggestion.
Jessica B on Mar 2, 2016
Similar to Ann Sacks dimensional tile

I use various types of tiles to do decorative projects. Always looking for good deals on unique pieces like this.

When will you have more in stock?
Amanda H on Apr 15, 2016
I'd like to order this tile as a backsplash for my kitchen, however I have quite a few outlets - is it possible to cut this tile to accomodate outlet openings?
Amy G on Oct 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, absolutely. A wet saw with a diamond blade will cut this tile.
Are there bull-nose tiles for top and side edges that are compatible with this tile (in white)?
Holli on Jun 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We used Daltile trim that Home Depot keeps in stock. I went all over town to find something that matched perfectly to no avail. The Daltile isn't exact, it works very well. If it helps, I am a very particular!
I am placing these tiles in my backsplash what size spacers should i use to get the close fit that appears in the photos?
Sharon G on Dec 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No less than 1/16"
What color grout did you use to match the Bianco?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: White. Looks great. I tried to alternate the patterned tile w the plain (as shown in website pic), but they came from different lots and didn't match. Also, they are hand cut so will not be as perfect as it appears in the photo. I ended up alternating a horizontal line of plain and then one of the pattern.
I'm looking at potentially adding this tile to our fireplace surround, however, my husband wants to mount our TV above the fireplace. I'm wondering if it's possible to mount a large
TV through on this tile?
A shopper on Jan 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you are saying you want to install this tile around and above the fireplace to the ceiling and then install a large TV in front of the tile that has been installed above the fireplace, I would consider determining your mounting hardware and then leave a small open drywall space to accommodate attaching the mounting hardware to the drywall and not tile in that area. If the TV is large you should not be able to notice the small amount of tile omitted in that area behind the large tv. Then, you don't have to mount through the tile. I am a consumer, not employed by Tilebar and am not a tile expert. We purchased this tile and installed it above our gas range. I love this tile.
Has any had success using the 3D tile and the flat tile? The aren’t the same size.
Alana E on Oct 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I did find that problem when installing our backsplash. You just have to sort of compensate for the difference. Keeping the tiles on center with each other rather than lining up with the edges of that makes sense? I would post a pic if I could here. I think it still turned out nice! I love the 3d tile!
Looking for a yellow color?
Lynda L on Jul 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I just installed this on my own home. There was more of a blue tint than yellow. I would recommend getting extra to account for the differences in width of the tile, as much as 1/4". I ended up matching like sized tiles to overcome the difference.
Does this picture show 50% of the Byzantine 3D AND 50% of regular, flat tile? Or is this entire picture composed of the 3D?
Nancy S on Feb 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's a 50/50 photo. We used the 3D exclusively in a subway stile and we loved how it came out for our backsplash.
We're planning to use this tile in a stacked pattern for our fireplace surround, and we are hoping to hear how this tile works out when used in combination with Schluter metal edging. If the edges end up cut, has anyone used it in combination with the Schluter and does it look ok despite the raised edges? Do they protrude past the Schluter edge or does it align to the high points? Also is the variation in length a common issue?
Lara O on Dec 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We considered a schluter as well, but, along with our installer decided against it. The tile is 5/8" away from the wall at the highest point where we had to cut. The schluter might loook fine but it won't lie flat, obviously. (And neither will your outlet covers...which wasn't a big deal overall, but something we only realized after we installed). We have one exposed edge of cut backsplash tile, and honestly no one notices.
How many tiles come in "one unit", i.e. do I get 5 tiles for the cost listed per unit? It seems like too good to be true price! Thanks.
A shopper on Nov 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You get 5 tiles per unit. At the cost listed.
Is there a view of kitchen back splash that reveals more area?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I can send you pictures/video of my kitchen if you let me know how. I love the tile and it has been much admired by friends.
how do you install shower fittings to the 3D tiles?
A shopper on Jul 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Cut the tile in order to fit it around whatever you need to.
will you be getting this back in stock?
bwallett on Sep 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi, yes we will be getting more in stock. If you click on the "notify" button right under where it says "out of stock" you will be notified when it becomes available again. Have a good day!
I would like to use several rows of this tile as an accent stripe in a shower. Any suggestions for cutting inside corners that accommodate the 3D nature of the tiles?

Installation

SUBSTRATE

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

  • 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.
  • To avoid affecting the color of the tile, white thinset such as Bostik PM is highly is recommended for all installations. For faster installation, use a rapid curing thinset such as Bostik Single-Flex Fast Set.
  • 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 optimal trowel size is a 9" Trowel - 1/8" square notch.

 

GROUTING

  • Grout joints should be packed full and free of voids and pits.
  • This tile is made by hand and is high fired. This causes a considerable amount of variation in size and thickness.  With handmade tile we always recommend larger grout joints to account for these irregularities.
  • Clean excess grout as the work progresses before it has hardened 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.
  • Both Sanded and Non-Sanded grouts are acceptable for use. 
  • It is recommended to use grout release, then grout the tile, then use a sealant to the tile such as MP90
  • Highly recommended to purchase the Polished Porcelain Maintenance Kit.

 

CUTTING

The recommended cutting method is to use a wet saw with a diamond blade. Edges can be sanded smooth after cutting.
