It is worth noting that ALL manufacturers of ceramic tile speak about color and shade variations and none of them guarantee a perfect match of each and every tile each and every time.
True enough, lots should be considered when purchasing any tile. The truth is however....colors and shades can also vary slightly even within the same lot-run. This is the nature of kiln fired ceramic tiles. Every effort is made to keep this under control but when dealing with products that are made from components of nature some variation will exist. By most, those variations are considered "the beauty" of working with and owning ceramic tile.
