Design Elements

"Sweet July, and we drove the Montauk Highway
And walked along the cliffs above the sea
And we wondered why, and imagined it was someday
And that is how the future came to be."

 -Dazzling Blue, Paul Simon


Inspired by lazy summer weekends spent down at the shore, the Montauk Collection evokes memories of sand between your toes and the smell of saltwater in the air. Available in 5 neutral colorways, Montauk is the perfect choice to add a serene, coastal feel to your space. Each colorway is offered in a 4x4 and 2x8 format making for a plethora of design options.

*Please note that there are two variations of gloss within a box, causing fluctuation in color. For best results, mix the shades before grouting.

Its a pearly bling version of a standard subway tile. Has a lot of interest and is really classy looking.
Alicia S on Jan 1, 2019
We ordered a sample, and when it arrived we were so impressed by the quality and beauty of the tile. We ordered it for our backsplash in the kitchen and we can't wait to have it done.

It’s the most beautiful subway I’ve ever seen.

Beautiful textured tile with pearly finish. A lot of gorgeous examples on instagram.
Tracy w on Oct 11, 2018
I liked that it looks like a handmade tile. It has a pearlized sheen which I feel elevates the subway tile look to the next level.

We wanted a tile to match our off white cabinets, something not too shiny, and different in design.

Can the tiles be dry stacked for a kitchen backsplash?
Cheryl W on Dec 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Are you asking if the tiles can be installed without grout?
Is this more of a white or off white color?
Terri on May 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It's a softer off white and it's beautiful! I would do their 5 for $5 samples, that helped me tremendously!
Is this tile suitable for shower walls?
A shopper on Oct 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but it must be sealed as the tile is a bit porous.
can i use this tile for kitchen backsplash? will the sheen be too overpowered?
ada t on May 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We just used this in our kitchen remodel and it turned out beautiful. The sheen is only noticeable when light hits it in an angle but it’s not too busy of a shimmer. I love it! It’s perfect if you are wanting a white subway tile look but with a little more of a contrast than just plain white ceramic.
If this tile needs to be sealed for use in a shower, what type of sealant should be used? Will it change the sheen on the tiles?
Elizabeth D on Apr 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I strongly recommend sealing the tile when used in a shower, although a tile professional will know which one to use. The tile is porous and at some point (a month is not long enough to know), it will break down, especially close to the floor or near inside corners, where water may remain. It may take a couple of years, but it will break down eventually when a shower is used daily and the tile is never sealed. Please don't take the word of one tile installer; with the thousands of tiles out there, it's hard for them to keep up with all the new ones.
Can I order fewer than the "minimum" 13 boxes of this tile?
A shopper on Jan 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: For questions such as these, please contact the customer service center. You can reach them by email at, or by phone at 888-541-3840.


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 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 1/8 inch or smaller.
  • 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 Unpolished Porcelain Maintenance Kit.



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