I chose this for an outdoor kitchen for my spanish hacienda style home. The colors are beautiful and I think it will be just the pop of color I am looking for.

I wanted a splash to the back drop so the cmbination of the Crema Marfil with this is perfect. I like a bit of a hispanic flair so it is perfect

Angelo M on Dec 28, 2017
I chose this tile because it is bright and fun...represents who we are. It has a causal, fun flair and I am so looking forward to installing it and celebrating with champagne when the project is complete.

This is the perfect combination of warm golds and blues for my kitchen which has a combination of oak and cinder grey/blue cabinets! Can't wait to see it installed. :)

How many tiles are in a box?
Sharon H on Aug 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think you have to buy by the case and there were 30 or 32 4x12" tiles in a box
tiles look square but it says 4 x 12. How big is each individual tile?
Bev L on Mar 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Each physical tile is, in fact, 4 by 12 inches. But there are 3 different patterns in each 4 by 12 tile making it look in pictures or online like the tiles are 4 inches by 4 inches. And each 4 by 12 tile has different images, not all identical but some of the images repeat, although not in same order.
how busy does it appear when on the wall?
neumie on Nov 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It can be busy depending on the application? We only used a single row as a backsplash on an 8' long dark wood vanity and it looks really nice. We topped it with gray pencil trim and the wall behind is baby blue so it makes the room pop! Good luck!
is this matte or gloss?
A shopper on Oct 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is gloss. It is also not completely flat on the surface, it actually comes up at the edges.
When will this tile be back in stock for samples?
Victoria on Jul 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend calling the customer service center at 888-541-3840 for an ETA on this product. You can also place a pre-order for the product, if the ETA is within an acceptable time table.
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

  • 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.

 

CUTTING

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