Cork Tile Backsplash
Forgive me if this has been asked before - I've searched for info and can't seem to find anyone that is doing what I'm thinking about and that scares me just a little!
I've found a cork penny tile that I am really drawn to. The photos where I've seen it used are usually bathrooms. It seems like a nice way to bring the wood tones back to my creamy white kitchen but I'm not sure why noone else is doing it.
Here's the cork -
Here's it being used in a bathroom -
And here is a photo of a different type of cork backsplash with colors as close as I can find to what I will have -
My perimeter cabs will have the creamy white color. The island and window seat is going to be in a natural cherry. All the counters will be soapstone with lots of color movement...greens, rusts, creams and black/grey, of course.
Is there an inherent reason that cork makes a bad backsplash? I know that it will need an annual coat of polyurethane and that seems like a bit of a pain - but also an easy way to keep the grout nice a clean. Right?
