Cork is an incredibly wonderful flooring option that is often overlooked by homeowners. For centuries, various cultures have been using cork for a variety of purposes, and one of those is for flooring. Why? Let's take a closer look at cork flooring.
Cork flooring is natural, durable, and soft
To begin, cork is a natural flooring product. It has some remarkable qualities that you do not find in other flooring materials. Here are just a few of unique qualities of cork flooring: • Absorbs shock when items are dropped on it. • Soft underfoot but not “spongey”. • Great insulation barrier against both heat and cold. • Slip and fall resistant. • Dampens footfall noise. • Available in a wide variety of color shades. • Can be refinished to look like new anytime.
