Ask Bob. Contessa Collection.

 

 

Contessa Seville Silver Leaf

 

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?

Regards, Karen

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.
