Paper-backed glass tile in shower?

13 years ago

We ordered tile for our new bath and it came in. After getting it home, we realized that the 1x1 glass mosaics aren't colored tiles -- they're clear tiles with colored paper stuck on the back. And they're made in China. I guess we should have been more careful.

We feel kind of ripped off, because these were expensive tiles -- $32/SF.

Are these tiles ok to use in a shower? (vertical surfaces only.) Should we try to return them? Since we had to order them, I don't know how returnable they are. But even if we have to eat our $220, we don't want to install bad tile.

We need to decide fast. Help, please!
