I wanted a sample but it was not offered so I had to buy a square foot of tile. I need samples to compare which ones look best with my granite countertop

Looks good with our soapstone counter and i like the crackle finish. Should be easy to self-install.

I ordered a sample and it was just what I was looking for. Very attractive tile. I can't wait to see what it looks like when it is installed. The color is lighter and less brown tone than it looks in the photo. It is a gray-sage color.

Neutral tile to complement eggshell/linen cabinets and grey/green/tan leather granite top. Note that the online sample looks darker and more tan than in actuality. When it arrived, it is much lighter and looks a bit minty in color.

This tile is thick and the crackled, glazed finish is gorgeous. Perfect for a kitchen backsplash! The color is a lighter gray with more of a green undertone than the photo shows. The tile samples are awesome!

Matches the New Caledonia granite and white cabinets I have. It would be great if you could show examples of how different color cabinets match with this tile. The color enhances grays but the shiny look is very pretty. The ceramic somehow is calming though.

Gorgeous tile, but I am having trouble finding a good paint color for the walls adjacent to this tile. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Jacquelyn B on Jan 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We purchased this beautiful tile and love it - but note that it tends reflect colors around it. We upgraded our countertop to a mosaic grey/pale green granite and the tile definitely looks like mint green, more so than the taupe it appears as in the photo. I'd suggest ordering tile samples, and paint a few different color hues you're interested in on the wall to get an idea of how it will look next to it. I hope this helps -- good luck! -- Lisa
Are these tiles undulated or smooth?
A shopper on Aug 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The surface is smooth. The photo image looks undulated from the reflection on the tile. I believe it also looks undulated because of the variation of the surface color. The color to me also is lighter than the photo, and a beautiful gray that reads a green gray to me. Hope this helps
Is this green hued?
A shopper on Mar 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, slightly green with grey tones too depending on the light and what color counters the tile is against. Very pretty subtle color.
I have read that crackle tile shouldn't be used in a shower. Does this have an extra glaze over the crackle to protect it from water penetrating the crackle? One store told me don't put it in there, others say it's fine if you seal it frequently.
sandra e on May 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This tile can be installed in a shower, but must be sealed and maintained regularly.
Where is this tile made? Does it say on the back of tile? Thanks.
Justine P on Jun 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This tile is manufactured in China.
I'm looking for an example of this in an actual room. All of the examples I've seen of this product are extreme close ups. Can you show this in an actual kitchen?

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

  • Please note that there is variation in shades of color due to the glazing effect. 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.

 

GROUTING

  • 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

 

CUTTING

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

 

CLEANING

Highly recommended to purchase the Unpolished Porcelain Maintenance Kit. Ceramic tile is resistant to germs and bacteria and it is also among the easiest of flooring materials to clean. You can clean your ceramic tile with a damp sponge mop. A solution of 1/4 cup of white vinegar to 2 gallons of water works best – allow time for drying. You can also sweep or vacuum. Although ceramic tile is by definition impervious, it is still possible for its surface to discolor. The following instructions explain how to clean ceramic tile surfaces.

 

For cleaning unpolished surfaces, follow these instructions:

  • Sweep or vacuum dust and debris from the floor. When sweeping, use a soft-bristle broom and sweep in 2 directions. First follow the direction of the tile, and then sweep diagonally. This will ensure the removal of all foreign material that might be residing in the texture.
  • Saturate the tile with a neutral cleaning solution, such as vinegar, with hot water and stir. Allow the cleaning solution to remain on the floor 5 – 10 minutes. Scrub the floor with a brush; again using a two-direction method.
  • Rinse the floor with clean, clear water to remove the cleaning solution.
  • For high traffic locations, it is recommended to clean the floor at least once per day and wet mop at regular intervals.

 

  • Always Remember:

    • Do not clean tile flooring with ammonia or with cleaners that contain bleach and/or acid. Acid and ammonia based cleaners may modify grout color.
    • Do not use wax, oil-based, abrasive cleaners, or sealants.
    • Agents that contain any dyes or colors are not recommended.
    • Use rugs at entrances to prevent dirt and grit from being tracked onto the tile flooring from outdoors.
    • Do not use steel wool pads, because loose steel particles may create rust stains in the grout.
