I bought these flat pebble tile for a master shower floor; locally, they were 31.99 a square foot! These arrive promptly and well-packed (I love Cool Tiles!). The only reason that I did not give them 5 stars is that there are a number of tiles that either have pits in them or have the top marred with some sort of glue, making them unusable. Luckily, at this price, ordering a few extra is not very expensive, but I am glad I included 10% extra in my order. They have a relatively matte surface, not shiny, but this is my preference and I suspect that someone who wanted a shiny look could do that with some sealant.
FIRST OFF - this is not like any tile you have ever laid if you are a Dy person. The vertical surfaces will be challenging and you will use more grout than anticipated because the rocks are so many depths ... not all a uniform sheet. But give it the time AMA tweaks it requires and you will have a million dollar look for a couple of hundred bucks. I love it, it was well worth the extra effort to use this product I did a fireplace surround, a connecting partition between rooms and a support column with this product. The finished product looks stellar,
