Cork backed placemats to protect your table
Getting a set of cork backed placemats brings various benefits for your dining table and for the decorative style of your kitchen or dining room. The primary benefit is they provide protection to the surface of your table from heat, moisture rings, and scratches, making them the ideal way to protect your furniture from getting damaged.
The rigid top surface is stain resistant and the layer of cork on the base make these placemats not only very durable, but easy to maintain, at the same time as bringing a nice stylish touch to your dining table.
The cork backing serves three main purposes, it not only works as a type of insulation, preventing heat from hot plates from damaging to your tabletop, but the softness of the cork backing means the table surface does not get scratched. Scratching can happen with other placemat materials if the base is too rough. The third benefit is the special texture of cork prevents the place mat from sliding around, this is particularly useful if you have a varnished, glass or shiny table surface.
