The Benefits of Cork Flooring

Why choose cork floors? The reasons are endless and cork floors provide a really interesting and beautiful look in any room.  The benefits of cork flooring are plenty.

Cork has a unique and natural beauty not seen in most other natural materials.  Cork comes in a variety of colors, shapes and patterns.  Choosing cork flooring for your home will create a dramatic and beautiful effect on any room.

Cork is a natural noise reducer.  Air trapped inside the structure of cork provides shock absorption feel to the floor which can reduce sound and vibration. Cork is also soft on your feet and perfect for areas where standing is necessary like kitchens. Drop something on a cork floor and you are unlikely to hear the loud clank it would make on tile or hardwood. The softness of the cork material is great for people with children, pets or people in need of back relief.

Cork has many natural benefits including anti-allergenic and a resistance to insects.  Suberin is a waxy substance in cork that repels most bugs and molds and protects the cork from rotting when moisture or wetness stays for a long time. It is a safe and healthy flooring material for adults, pets and babies. Cork can also be fire resistant on top of all these incredible and natural benefits.
Cork is an incredibly durable material for floors as it has been used since the late 1890s in many public buildings like churches and libraries.  Using cork flooring in your home is not only a beautiful and natural choice; it is healthy, safe and unique. Go green and choose cork!
