The green tiles have subtle iridescent tones of blue and violet, which compliment, accent and soften the white subway tile and dark walnut cabinetry in the bathroom.

Does the tile come on a mesh backing?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. It comes on a front-facing plastic adhesive.
Is this right for a kitchen counter and island?
Andrew R on Jun 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Probably not, but perfect for a backsplash. I see this paired with a beautiful countertop of colored concrete. The backsplash gives you the 'bling' and the countertops are soft, paler versions of the blues and greens, your preference. I like the soft grayish greens.
I want to make a small backsplash on the wall behind the bathroom vanity. What would I use and what would match the colors in the summery bloom? Should I surround the tile w/pencil tile?
A shopper on May 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Since the backsplash is not in a kitchen and therefore would need some kind of border (unless it ends under a large mirror) pencil type in a matching solid color would look nice. Why aren't you using the Summer Bloom tiles for the backsplash instead of looking for something that matches it?
Is this tile rated for floors or only walls?
Will F on Apr 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Our Celeste glass tile collection can absolutely be used for flooring!
What adhesive is best for this tile?
Karen T on Jun 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Karen, I think it was mastic....I got it at Home Depot, it was what they recommended,,,I used it for backsplash in my kitchen...it is beautiful and looks like stained glass,,,I started grouting then steamed the grout out because it was dulling it down,,,Only use a little adhesive...Love this tile.....Janis
Is there a trick to removing the front facing plastic once the product has dried? We are loosing way to many tiles.
A shopper on Oct 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I only purchased one tile to see if I liked it. (I do!). I bought a piece of drywall and some pre-mixed tile adhesive. I had the same problem you did removing the plastic film, but only around the edges. I attributed that to having applied less of the adhesive around the edges than the middle. In any case, I intend to tell my contractor to watch out for this when he installs my back splashes.
Can the Celeste Summery Bloom glass tile be installed on a floor?
A shopper on Mar 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: the tiles are not as thick as you would want for floor tile. I used it as an accent border in my shower. I love the colors they reflect blues, turquoise, lavender.
so I can not really answer your question as a definite yes.
Did you buy the recommended grout, or use something else?
Christy P on Nov 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: no. we used the same grout for the main tile and this accent tile. The grout lines are so small you cannot tell any difference whatsoever. This accent tile was laid in sheets with no grout lines showing between them. They look fantastic and all of our company comments on how well they work as a backsplash and accent strip in the shower
Love the sample! Do you have a suggestion for floor tiles?
Debbie on Nov 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This tile is fun and colorful. I actually bought it for accenting a mirror in our bathroom. The bathroom has oak hardwood flooring. If you are wanting a tile floor you might consider white and let the glass tile really show off. Hope this helps.
Is this tile "frost proof"? My pool builder says I need a waterline tile that is frost proof.
Sharla B on Feb 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't think that the tile is the issue. I think it's the installation that has to be done properly. I've used this tile on my outdoor pool but on a flat section of an area where a water fall runs down it. This is the first winter so I can't tell you for sure if it's been ok yet. Also, this winter in Toronto hasn't been to bad. Sorry I can't be of more help.
Is this tile suitable for swimming pool and spa waterline tile applications?
JvLoveren on Jul 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is.
Installation

CELESTE SERIES 

  • The Celeste Series is produced as a face mounted mosaic. Instead of a mesh mounted sheet you will receive a sheet with a plastic film holding the tiles in place. The purpose of this new face mounted version is because it is ideal for installations in submerged areas such as pools, showers, bathtubs etc. The plastic film is to be removed only once the sheet has been installed and the thin set has been given adequate time to cure. We have tested several types of thinset and recommend the following:

 

Recommended Thinset    LATICRETE: 254 Platinum

 

Movement Joints

Movement joints are essential for the success of most tile installations. Install movement provisions according to the “2011 TCA Handbook For Ceramic, Glass and Stone Tile Installation” method EJ171-11. A flexible sealant, recommended for submerged applications, is required between the tile and all restraining abutments (i.e. the decking or coping), at all inside corners and directly over any joints in the concrete tank. In-field movement joints are required every 8’ on center in exterior applications or 20’ on center in interior applications. An architect or design professional should be consulted when specifying the exact number and location of each movement joint.  There are a wide variety of flexible sealants available for use in tile installations. Each sealant product will vary in type, application and performance; consult the sealant manufacturer for specific recommendations and imitations.

 

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1

To initiate the bond coat, use the flat side of a trowel and firmly apply thinset to the substrate.

Step 2

To establish the proper depth of the setting bed, use a 3/16” x 1/4” v-notch trowel to apply additional thin-set and comb full notches in one direction.

Step 3

Use the flat side of the trowel to flatten the notches and achieve a smooth, consistent thin-set setting bed.

Step 4

Apply mosaic sheets to the thinset setting bed, tape side towards you, with light, even pressure. When joining sheets, be certain to adjust sheets so that grout lines are uniform. Periodically, check thinset for skinning (slight drying). If skinning occurs, remove thinset and reapply.

Step 5

To achieve the flattest possible surface, lightly tap the sheets using light pressure with a grout float or a wooden beating block and a finish hammer. To unify sheet transitions, tap from one sheet to the next.

Step 6

After the thinset has cured, slowly peel the face mounting tape from the tile starting from the corner. Use an angled downward movement.

 

INSTALLATION MATERIALS

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. 

To speed up the drying process, we recommend cutting small slits in the plastic to facilitate air flow. Additionally, it is very important that the plastic be peeled off at a flat angle - do not grab an edge and pull straight up. Instead, peel it backwards while pressing down on the still covered side and slowly pulling back.

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.

 

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

. 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.
