Do you need to wash the corks and dry them in the sun prior to making a cork backsplash wall?
That cork wall is so cool
What a great cork backsplash! Who makes this, and does it come in any other-than-natural colors?
long. The corks are laid out in alternating angles so there will be some spaces at the top and bottom of the design which I can fill in with glass or marbles. What would you use for backing (to attach the corks on? I don't want to attach the corks directly to the wall. I'm planning to do 1/2" border
Were the corks applied directly to the wall or was something put over the wall before applying?

affordable alternative to a backsplash for either a kitchen or bathroom
Cork-board "subway tiles" backsplash. Great idea!
this looks like painted corkboard backsplash?
Konar attached the colorful cork tiles to her wall using simple 3M adhesive strips, which she can remove easily when she moves. The small size means she needed to use only one adhesive strip to attach piece, and the tiles can still expand and contract. This creative cork backsplash allows her to display various
Cork's gorgeous natural grain can be tinted and stained by manufacturers to create patterned and colorful finishes. Rolls of cork can be cut and painted, as for the backsplash in this novel kitchen.

OMG I was torn between a cork and stacked stone backsplash for my wet bar! I'm guessing this is highly customized - or can my local professional do it?
tile installer can do this, but it will come with a price. I would advise doing a dry layout yourself before they install since the dimensions of the corks can vary compared to the stone. Is it a large area?
neat, but wouldn't use wine corks, cool pattern though

Use It. Create a kitchen backsplash! Cork is a durable but flexible material that has dozens of uses. Designer Regina Pace used it in this kitchen backsplash. This kitchen was built on a budget, so Pace wanted to make sure it looked nice while still keeping it affordable. She spiced up the look of the
Beautiful. What is the backsplash? Thanks!

What do you like about this photo? Cork backsplash
butler’s pantry also serves the adjacent dining room and includes a Sub-Zero wine cooler and bottle and glassware storage. The zinc countertop and cork backsplash tiles make it a joy to play bartender here.
Its introduction caused quite a stir among design aficionados. You can see why. Freezer on the left. Refrigerator on...

My Houzz: suspension of disbelief
This is such an imaginative space - thanks for sharing! I wanted to ask about the cork backsplash - what did you use to seal it? Just a standard urethane, or...? Brand name would also be helpful, tx.
I too love the cork backsplash. I'm wondering how easy it is to clean.

How about cork on wall in bathroom as accent??
Cork flooring backsplash in the funky TO home - brilliant!
I like the cork floor backsplash. I wonder how it would clean up?
repurposed street lamp that hangs over the suspended glass island. Cheveldeyoff poured his own concrete countertops and built the cabinets. A cork flooring backsplash adds warmth and contrasts the cold concrete countertop and stainless steel cabinets.

Wine corks as tile on stove wall?
Cork Backsplash. Looks bad with too many outlets, lights, phone jack, etc.

Were the corks glued directly to the wall? Or was something applied to the wall before application? Getting ready to start a project of creating an entire cork wall in my dining room but I am unsure if I want to apply the corks directly to the wall...
Love the wine cork backsplash. Definitely looks better with dark stained wood cabinets.
nice pattern, need to use cork switch plates or something so all the outlets don't stand out too much

The backsplash is made of wine bottle corks glued to the wall on a horizontal staggered joint.
can you tell me step by step how you did this cork backsplash?
It's actually pretty easy. You need a bunch of corks to start. I bet we used 1500 corks in this backsplash. Contact your local bars and restaurants and ask them if they have any extra. So to install, get some sort of fast set construction adhesive, we used Loctite's Power Grab in this case. On the
first 5 rows or so and applying the adhesive to each cork, I'd just run a line of adhesive right above the previous row and then just press the corks into it. Again, very simple. It's not going to be perfect because there are a ton of different size corks. We applied this right to the drywall, stuck just
