We’ve fallen in love with cork flooring and plan to use a lot of it in our home. I am currently redoing a bathroom and would like to use glued down cork tiles. The room is over a crawl space, and I want to use cork instead of ceramic so we won’t need to install electric heating elements to keep it warm in the winter (Seattle). I know I will need to seal it well, but will there be problems near the tub/shower or under the toilet? Am I wrong in assuming that a good polyurethane or hardwax oil finish on top with lots of silicone on the exposed edges near the fixtures will keep things dry and well preserved? Any comments????
