What is the color of the Cor-Terra rubber cork? It looks terrific! - Also, might you know if the rubber cork is as vulnerable to fading in direct sunlight as is 100% cork? Thanks!

Hello. The color is Coffee Bean.
I honestly don't know how the rubber cork fares in sunlight compared to cork - sorry!

Not being the owner living with these counters, we can't speak directly to your questions. We have a small piece in our office kitchenette that sees low use and has held up beautifully and is easy to clean.

Flooring? - Could you explain about the floor a little more? I love the color and texture. Thinking of adding cork flooring to my kitchen, but this looks a bit better than most installs I've seen.

Thanks for the response! I will look into this. How difficult would this be to do on my own? I'm fairly handy, careful and will Google just about anything.

You might want to check with the manufacturer and see if you need a Certified Installer to maintain a warranty.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Unique Kitchen Tile
This low backsplash is the perfect scale for adding a jolt of lime green via the tile work.
Becky Harris added this to Yummy Colors! Apple and Lime
Here the lime adds a great punch to this kitchen.
Alison Aves added this to Brave, Appetizing Color Where You Cook
Zing. This vivid green backsplash makes me want to sink my teeth into a Granny Smith apple.
Lily Gahagan added this to Crisp, Fresh: Go for Green Apples
This thin strip of green backsplash works the same magic.
In this kitchen, red accessories complement a green backsplash.
After the countertops are installed, it's time to think about backsplash installation and painting. Your counter sets the lower line for your tile, so even though you could install the tile before templating, you'll get a better-looking backsplash if you wait. Muscling a heavy counter into place is a difficult job, and some walls inevitably will get bumped or dinged. Save your finish painting until after the install for this reason.
Ivon Street Studio added this to Ecofriendly Materials: Kitchen Countertops
Recycled PaperPaperstone, one of several recycled paper countertop materials, is FSC certified and made of 100 percent postconsumer recycled paper, petroleum-free resin and pigment. It has a handsome monolithic appearance, and its feel is often compared to a warm, soft stone, like soapstone. The material is only heat resistant to 350 degrees, so you should exercise care with your hottest pans.Cost: $18 to $30 per square foot for the material only
Ivon Street Studio added this to Ecofriendly Kitchen: How to Choose Flooring
Rubber-cork-blend floors. Cushy cork gets a new look when blended with recycled rubber, like in CapriCork's And/Or line, made with 35 percent preconsumer recycled content. The product is available in both rolls and tiles, and comes in 17 different colors, from neutral to bright shades.
