The wildflower tile is stunning. After seeing the sample you send, we think that, with the other tile we are using for a backsplash, the large wildflower pattern will really stand out in the focal area we are creating behind our gas cooktop. We will be also be incorporating individual flowers spaced randomly under the cabinets.

We wanted something dramatic for behind our cook top, and this tile fits the bill! We can't wait to get it in and install it.

Can you advise what color grout was used in the photos for the WILDFLOWER PALE OAK?
Beth W on May 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The tiles in the photos were not grouted. We recommend using a mix of non-sanded and sanded grout due to the size of the grout lines in this particular tile.
IS it necessary/recommended to seal the marble tiles after it is installed and grouted?
Kathy on Oct 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. In fact, it's recommended to seal the marble before you grout, otherwise you could stain it. If you use thinset to adhere the tile, use white instead of grey. Marble is very soft for a stone, and very porous, so be careful not to scratch it (no sanded grout), too.
Can you please recommend a subway tile (ceramic or glass) that would go with this for behind the range? the marble mosaic seems a little too busy looking for something bigger.
Nichola S on Jul 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We did exactly what you are suggesting behind our range. We used an oversized light grey subway (ceramic) as the field tile, and a dark grey marble border tile around the flower insert (we have pictures, but couldn't figure out how to attach them). The problem was the grout. Recommended was a sanded grout, but, that scratches glass tile (we tested it), and some of the spaces are too large for unsanded, so we had to find a blended single component grout that would work, but you still had to be very careful not to scratch anything. We had to grout twice, since the first application shrunk. We used a greyish colored grout so the light petals would show up better than with the antique white. It really looks good and was worth the effort.
Does the Sheet Size of 17" x 13.25" come with four corners or only as shown in the pictures as flower petals as the outer edges? I am worried I will not be able to fit it in with the rest of my tile choices. Thank you for your help.
A shopper on Aug 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There are no corners, but the tile has an arrow to show the direction to fit the tiles. If you use the arrows, it's pretty easy to fit them together. Be sure to order extra, and use a good tile saw. Additionally, some of the edges of the petals are rough, so I used some fine sand paper to smooth them. I hope this helps.
Could this tile be used as a backsplash behind a range? Would it be prone to staining since it is made of marble?
Joyce D on Jul 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This tile is perfectly suitable for a backsplash. It must be sealed as well cleaned and maintained regularly. For normal care and maintenance of stone tiles, clean stone surfaces with a few drops of neutral cleaner, stone soap, or a mild liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Use a clean soft cloth for best results. Too much cleaner or soap may leave a film and cause streaks. Do not use products that contain lemon, vinegar, or other acids on marble or limestone. Rinse the surface thoroughly after washing with the soap solution and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any abrasive cleaners.
Thank you David. One more question. Do Thank you David. Also, do you only seal the marble pedals but not the glass pedals? If so, what is the easiest way to do that? With a sponge type brush?
Kathy on Oct 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The glass tiles do not require sealing. In terms of technique, I definitely recommend touching base with your installer.
can this be used on a shower wall?
Anne D on Aug 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes! This tile can be used on a shower wall.
Wildflower Pale Oak tile ok for floor installation? This item states it’s ok for residential floor use but it has glass tile along with marble. Won’t the glass scratch and get hazy over use?
B M on Aug 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This tile is not recommended for floor use due to the glass. The marble Wildflower tiles, can be used on the floor in a residential setting.

GLASS TILE CHARACTERISTICS

This material is made of clear and transparent glass. The back of the glass tile is coated with the desired pigment(s) and a white protective coating visible from the back of the tile. The multi-layered protective coating is fired with the tile and ensures that the thin-set mortars will not be visible after installation. The pigments and glass are made from natural minerals and as such the firing process will cause slight variations in shades and size. All material is sorted according to ANSI standard A137 size tolerances and packaging is clearly marked with caliber and shade/tone/dye-lot.

 

GLASS INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

  • These instructions are meant to be a guide for most installations, under normal conditions. Please follow best practice instructions found in the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) 09300 Handbook for specific installation types.
  •  

    MATERIAL INSPECTION

    • 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. Due to the nature of the material and production process it may be possible to see through the clear glass on certain angles which can appear as a lighter line along the edges of the glass. This is not a factory defect or deficiency of any kind in the material and should be expected by the end consumer. *Always use appropriate personal protective safety equipment when handling, drilling, cutting or grinding glass tile such as (but not limited to) eye, ear and hand protection.
    •  

      SUBSTRATE

      • Before you start tiling, make sure that whatever surface the tiles are being installed to will be strong and structurally sound. Cement board, concrete or drywall is best, as these surfaces can handle the moisture of the tiling process. Plywood should be avoided, since the wood will warp with the added moisture and it will also be less waterproof, even after tiling.
      •  

        INSTALLATION MATERIALS

          Thin-Set

        • To avoid affecting the color of the tile, white thinset such as Bostik PM is strongly recommended for all installations.
        • Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes.
        • 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.

          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.

           

          GROUTING

        • It is recommended to use grout release, then grout the tile, then use a sealant to the tile such as MP90
        • Non-sanded grout that is latex or polymer modified and compliant with A118.4 should be used for our glass material. If sanded grout must be used for technical or aesthetic reasons (such as with mosaics with larger grout joints), gentle application of grout with a soft rubber float is recommended to minimize the possibility of surface scratching. A mock up or testing installation should be executed to ensure results are acceptable.

          After grouting, wipe of excess surface grout with a slightly damp sponge - do not over wash. After initial wash has been allowed to haze, wipe once with minimal pressure at a 45-degree angle to joints and rinse sponge after wiping once with each side. Any remaining haze can be buffed off with a dry towel or cheesecloth after grout surface has dried sufficiently. Grout joints should be a minimum of 1/16” and not butt set. Clean excess grout as the work progresses before it has hardened completely. In the event that a grout haze forms, you can use an acid-free remover such as Deterdek to remove it. Acids should never be used for cleaning grout haze.

           

          CARE AND MAINTENANCE

        • Highly recommended to purchase the Glass Installation/Maintenance Kit, which contains all you need to maintain and care for your tiles.
        • . 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.
