Hello,

This is Enrique, customer support.

In order to cut this tile, you need to use a wet saw.

Before installing this in a kitchen or bathroom, I would ask the tile company if it's suitable to get wet... might not be. As for outlets, your installer will just cut this like any other tile...

is this tile good for a kitchen backsplash? Behind our sink we are having the fabricator use the Quartz same as the counters, but the rest of the backsplash including behind the stove I want to do a subway tile. Coincidentally, last year I bought 2 light pendants, one over our sink, the other over our table that are very similar but called shell. Here is what it looks like lite up. [houzz=
] Also found a pump soap bottle and dish made of mother of pearl I bought last year. http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/store/product/capiz-large-vanity-tray/1041687260?categoryId=13063
Wonder if any stores local to me carry this tile so I could see it to be sure :)

Hello,

The mother of pearl tile you like, PEM0060 or PEM0061, are good candidates for your kitchen backsplash.

You don't need to use grout for these two option of pearl tile. Both are the same color and thickness. The difference between them is the chip size: PEM0061 is a little bigger vs. PEM0060.

If you have any other question, please, send me a message.

Thank you.

Where does the shell originate from? - What is the method for collecting them?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The natural shades of white found in mother-of-pearl make this tile shimmer and glow. The shell is mounted on fiberglass, so its opulent look will last for years.
