So it seems we are only blogging on Tuesdays lately :) But this Tuesday we have a great product review to share with you. It's Overstock's SomerTile Castle White Mosaic tile. We had been eying this tile for a while and were excited when we got to use it in our N Street project as the fireplace tile surround.

THE STATS: $154.99 for a pack of 10 sheets. Each sheet measures at 11.75" x 11.75" so the sheets are just under a foot each. That makes this tile approximately $15.50 a sq. ft. The tile is glazed porcelain so it works for both indoor and outdoor use.

The tile installed...

In this picture the tile almost has a creamy look to it, but in real life I would say it has almost a grayish tone to it. The people who bought the home requested a cream grout to blend in with the tile, but if I had my way I would have done a charcoal grout so you could see the pattern really well (like the picture above of it in the box). We also thought about doing a blueish-gray grout that would bring in some color as well as show the pattern better.

OUR REVIEW: +++ This product gets a 3 out of 3 pluses from us (our version of stars). For the price, this is a fun mosaic tile that is well made, and a good color. Overstock is always a great company to work with, with an excellent return policy and great customer service. The tile arrived in perfect condition and the tile installer had zero issues with the tile. We definitely recommend this tile to you.

Best uses of the tile:
- Fireplaces (obviously)
- Kitchen Backsplash
- Powder Room Bathroom Floor
- Shower Walls and/or Ceiling
