* IMPORTANT: For this model, it is recommended that you install exclusively on smooth and sleek surfaces. Due to its size, the tile will tend to show any irregularities in the surface. If the surface is even slightly indented such as with a grout line, you must fill any gaps to ensure a smooth application.

Excellent design and look, with only one flawTiles look really nice and real, I am very happy with them. I went with one of the option your team recommended and it really fits perfectly. It elevated my kitchen space completely. After 2 days I can confirm that cleaning is very easy. Looking forward to see how they will age with time.
However, I have to give only 4 stars, cause exact overlaying of this large format files was not very easy. We spend a lots of time for each tile, two persons, infrared and manual leveling tools., etc...As a technical person, my lines have to be straight. And still at the end, it was just not possible to make everything perfect. Up close you can see some uneven spots and you can see it is glued, which was kind of small disappointment. It was very hard to identify the overlay line and not go over the line or "under" the line. I think maybe overlaying lines needs to be more visible, as a guidance for overlaying, (for example light transparent yellow or something). Also, the upper overlaying line could be thinner, maybe that way it will be less visible after. Specially with chevron, you can clearly see upper overlaying tiles. The side lines are really invisible (if you make it right;-)), that is beautiful.
All in all I am very satisfied with choice and purchase. For next time however, due to difficulty of overlaying, I would choose one of the smaller formats. Although, this design is really nice- sooo....maybe you can make the same design in smaller format?!:-)
Hello, We do not suggest using Smart Tiles as a countertop. They were designed as decorative backsplash and have not been tested for the wear and traffic of a countertop. They can be used around the shower as long as they are not in constant contact with waterflow. They are moisture resistant however not fully waterproof. Splash and humidity are acceptable.
