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?

Interesting concept, I agree that a good 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?

Thank you both for your comments. Just showed this to my husband and he suggested we save the $ (to your point, jblaese) and the wow-factor for our kitchen granite, which will also be on this bar. The bar will be 5ft. All this is still concept - ground breaking wont be for another 5 weeks!

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 space by combining affordable box cabinetry with 1" x 2" split-face travertine tile mixed in with corks. Cut in half, the corks were exactly the right size to create a unique pattern on this kitchen backsplash.
