Hey Tile Sleuths....what is this tile?

beekeeperswifeSeptember 18, 2012

Modern Spaces design by Raleigh Interior Designer MA Allen Interiors

Looks very similar to the Casa Mood Tile I posted before, but I'm not sure what it is. If it is clear glass I like how it seems to not be green.

I did email the designer, so we shall see.

thanks.

Bee, that looks very close to what is sitting in my garage right now, waiting for its turn my the kitchen remodel. I'm installing 80 sq ft as my backsplash. I'll post photos here once it's installed. It was about $45 sq. ft. If you look for posts by research_queen, she has finished photos.

But first I have to get past my tile nightmare.

berardmr, is it Vetro Glass? I can't find any research_queen's pics, they seem to have disappeared. :(

Bee that is a very unique and beautiful tile! I like how the light bounces off of it, it's a little shimmery. I'm sure it's pretty in person, and can't wait to see it next to your counters.

How's the etching on the Super White? Has it calmed down yet?

Bee, the tile looks like it could be Vetro Neutra Listello Bianco manufactured by Casamood. There are several websites that sell it. I saw one that had it for 19.95 a sheet. The pictures on those website don't do the tile justice. It's beautiful. The link below does show all the different colors it comes but I think its a European website. Hope this info helps you in your tile search. Can't wait to see what you pick for your fantastic new kitchen. Here is one picture I found of the tile.

Beautiful tile! Might have considered had I seen it earlier...
Bee - your kitchen is going to be fantastic! I am loving the concept - hope it matches when you get the samples.

Maybe we should have a sample exchange - I have a crate of tiles in the basement!!!

Just want to say that it takes about 2 sheets to make a square ft. They list price by the sheet. I didn't know that at first, but this tile had me at Hello.

Bee, It looks more translucent than the Vetro. Looks similar to various "super white" glass mosaics we have in our showroom. I'm sure you can find it anywhere really. I can probably give you a link to buy online from our vendor tomorrow morning. If it is what I suspect, it's not nearly as impressive in person. The kitchen in you're photo is much more contemporary than yours...

What about the various shell mosaics out there?

Yes, the Vetro Lux is not a translucent glass. It's more pearlized glass with 'swipes' of lux (shine) on it, as if it was hand wiped.

I bought tons of samples from sites where I loved the photo, but the actual sample was disappointing.

Good luck, Bee. I'm sure your choice will be stunning, just like the rest of your kitchen!
