I wanted a kitchen backsplash that was simple but had some texture to it. I love the look of a 3.12 subway tile. This was a perfect compromise
Mary-Elizabeth R on Jul 19, 2018
I love the uneven edges.... i had the 3x6 like this in a former kitchen and loved the look. The 3x12 with a light gray grout is going to look great in my modern farmhouse kitchen. Will post pics when done:)

I wanted a bright white subway tile with a handmade look
Donovon W on Jul 7, 2018

Clean looking but adds some randomness, which avoids the hospital look of subway tile.
Darrel S on Apr 21, 2018
Beautiful, textural tile that will look superb in a kitchen renovation!
Alison G on Apr 20, 2018
Handmade feel. Love the size.
Page G on Apr 9, 2018
Love that is a classic timeless subway tile but the wavy finish adds character. Also, like the longer shape. Think using it in a small lake house kitchen will actually make the space look larger.
Christine C on Mar 26, 2018
I have spent a lot of time shopping for the handmade look of this tile. Can't wait to have it installed! It looks gorgeous.

Hi! Is the Lancaster Bianco a cold, pure/ice white, or is it a warm white/slightly off-white? My cabinets are Benjamin Moore Simply White, if that helps. Thanks!
A shopper on Aug 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello! We recently installed the Lancaster Bianco in one of our custom homes, which had Sherwin Williams Pure White cabinets. That color is very similar to your BM Simply White. The color looks GREAT with the Bianco Tile. I would not say the tile is a cold/ice white color. It IS white, but with just a HINT of warmth to it. I think if you did the creamier color in the Lancaster it might look to creamy with your cabinets. We posted a photo of our kitchen w/ this tile under our Instagram @rangecustomhomes -- feel free to take a look. Hope that helps!
Does this tile need to be sealed before grout is applied?
Nicole A on Aug 29, 2018

Is the tile shaped to purposely have uneven grout lines?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This tile is intended to have a more authentic hand made look, so the grout lines are a little uneven.
Is this tile good for inside shower walls, it is it meant to be more decorative?
Renee E on Jul 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can be used in a shower.


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.



  • 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.



  • 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.
  • Grout joints should be packed full and free of voids and pits.
  • 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. We recommend Sanded grout for joints larger than 1/8 inch and Non-Sanded for 1/8th inches or less.
  • 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.



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