Diplomacy deftly delivers the quiet strength and visual beauty of quarried Belgian bluestone. Diplomacy is available in three smoky hues that come alive with movement created by delicate highlights of light greys and whites. Large format floor tiles paired with a coordinating brick-joint mosaic create a magnificent space crowned by an authentic stone look. Diplomacy expands your outdoor living space to a patio or garden with the 24 x 24 tile pavers in 2 cm thickness creating a seamless transition from interior to exterior.

• BLUESTONE BRILLIANCE
-- Natural look of quarried Belgian bluestone in durable ColorBody™ porcelain tile
-- Three smoky, grey tonalities in a brushed stone surface

• DESIGN SELECTION
-- Three floor tile sizes including a 24 x 48, brick-joint mosaic and trim package available
-- Rectified edges for smaller grout joint installation
-- 24 x 24 available in 2cm thickness for exterior applications

Notes:

  • * Available in 2cm thickness in 24 x 24 size.

  • Since there are variations in all fired ceramic and natural products, tile and trim supplied for your particular installation may not match samples. Final confirmation should be made from actual tiles and trim prior to installation. Manufactured in accordance with ANSI A137.1 standards.

  • Not for use on ramps. Water, oil, grease, improper drainage and certain footwear can create slippery conditions. Floor applications expected to be exposed to these conditions require extra caution in product selection.

  • Special consideration must be given when installing tiles greater than 15 inches. Please click here for more information.

  • Special care should be taken when grouting with dark pigmented colors. A grout release is recommended to prevent finely powdered pigments from lodging in the pores of the surface. Use of a latex modified thin-set is recommended for installation.
