Hello AT,

We are looking to start our kitchen renovation in 2 weeks and are having trouble finding the right backsplash.

We were at Nemo Tiles last week and found a really great, natural looking and eco-friendly tile made from coconut shells.

It seems like a wonderful way to break the texture in the kitchen.

We have a silestone countertop, steel appliances, a mud-washed- looking stone floor tile and medium brown cabinets.

The coconut tiles seem to complement the "contemporary-earthy-natural" look (is there such a thing?) we want in our kitchen (except we have a steel backsplash behind the cooktop to keep away the grease)...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)

Nemo claims it works well in dry areas, but I'm skeptical about the durability. (P.S. The service at Nemo is terrible, I wish some other place would carry this tile).

Have you heard of this coconut tile before? Any reviews on how good it works as a kitchen backsplash?

Would love to hear what you think of this?

Thanks! Vidula
