When you think about flooring, cork isn’t exactly the first material that comes to mind, however it’s a durable, comfortable, and eco-friendly flooring option. It’s made from the outer bark of the cork oak tree and is carefully harvested every 9 years. This allows new bark to grow on the tree in place of what was harvested. The trees are never damaged or killed during the harvest, making the use of cork environmentally friendly.
Cork offers a lot of advantages for homeowners such as its beautiful appearance, easy/low maintenance, the cushion it adds to each step, and its ability to absorb sound. On top of that, cork is also naturally resistant to mold, mildew, and termites. The durability of cork allows it to be crack and abrasion resistant. The unique qualities of cork make it the ideal flooring option for kitchens, bathrooms, or kids play rooms.
