          I have used this tile before in several colors (Brazilian green, Asian black, Indian red, and this beige) in my kitchen and in three bathrooms, and it is by far my favorite tile. It has enough variation in color and pattern to look great with lots of other types and textures of tiles (true slate, granite, Mexican glossy tile, copper). I intentionally tried to stain a sample of this tile before using it for the first time, and neither wine, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, or cheese left any marks whatsoever (I even left them on overnight). This tile is very stain resistant. It also has enough friction to not be slipper in bathrooms, even when wet.

          When installing, you do need to pay attention to the stamped patterns because they repeat - make sure to avoid placing two identical tiles next to each other in the same orientation. Also, if you order multiple boxes, be sure to check for size consistency before installing. I had one box where every tile was 1/8" smaller than the tiles in the other five boxes. However, the customer service folks at my local Home Depot were great about returning the tile, even though it was a special order, and then re-ordering another batch. Read Less

          We have used Daltile's Continental Slate in our kitchen and three bathrooms, using different color combinations each time (egyptian beige, indian red, brazilian green, and asian black). The tile itself is very good quality, has great texture, is easy to clean, does not stain (even with red wine, vinegar, oil, etc.), has good traction when wet, and is quite impermeable compared to other similar tiles. The downsides of this tile are that 1) the stamped patterns do repeat, so you need to pay attention that you don't place the same identical pattern facing the same direction twice in a row (otherwise it's not noticeable), and 2) the 6x6 tiles are actually 12" tiles that were cut down in the Read More

Overall though I love the finished look of all four of these colors as well as the slightly rustic texture. The tile looks great with lots of other accents too - in various rooms we've used accents of real slate, glass tile, pebble tile, and crackle-glazed Mexican tiles, and they all look beautiful with the Continental Slate. The color variation makes this tile easy to combine with other tiles. Read Less

          Does this range have any flanges (or "wings") that cover the gap between the range and the adjacent countertop? I'm looking for a range with no flanges - just a flat edge that abuts the countertop. Thank you for any responses.

          Answer: 
          The product description says indoors. However, I installed one of the similar Kasa bulbs (the multicolor one) in my outdoor porch light and it worked fine, even in temps down to about 20F and with dimming to about 30% brightness (I didn't try any lower than that). That said, I suspect outdoor use might void the 2-year warranty.

          I'd recommend getting a new faucet as it would be easier than drilling new 8" holes for your old faucet. If you want an 8" faucet though, you could certainly drill new holes (if you have proper tools and skills) and then get an ecutcheon to cover the old holes.
