Yes. The glue-down cork tiles which are 100% cork are great, not the engineered panels which are actually only 40% cork and 60% fiberboard. Cork does not absorb water and mold does not grow on cork so water, moisture or high humidity is not a problem with glue-down cork tiles. Our customers have even encountered hurricane flooding and their cork floors (glue-down cork tiles) remained intact. Designs such as the one above can only be done with glue-down cork tiles. We use zero VOC adhesive and water-based finishes so everything is eco-friendly.

We had cork tiles installed. Within about 5 years, the water based polyurethane finish , that was factory applied, has cracked all over. The floor looks terrible. We do not wear shoes in the house , and some people's high heels have left big dents in the cork. I would not recommend it to anyone. Never again.

Just love this design for a kitchen? Really blends old / new for us. Could also carry this look to the bathroom quite easily using porcelain tiles.
