Q: Hello Bob,
I love the Contessa tile. I am thinking about using the tile in my kitchen as a backsplash but I am wondering if it can withstand the heat and any acid ingredients. How is it sealed and could the silver leaf peel off?
A: Great question Karen!
Contessa is one of our most popular collections and the silver leaf finish is so unique. The Contessa Metallic finish tiles are pre-sealed. For sealing the grout or resealing the tiles use only water based sealers. These tiles are great for kitchen backsplashes but not directly behind a cooktop. Stainless steel or another, more heat resistant, tile would be appropriate. For cleaning: Non abrasive, pH balanced cleaners, and a soft sponge.
