Buying Tips for Cork Flooring
Why Buy Cork Flooring?
The durability of cork as a flooring material makes it an excellent choice for a variety of applications. Its elasticity and ability to give on impact means that cork is a highly resilient flooring, and perfect for any area that needs both comfort and sturdiness.
Cork is extremely versatile – it can be stained in a myriad of colors, or it can be painted, meaning it fits in perfectly with any style of décor. This means that you don’t have to be limited in your design choices, and you can still get all of the many benefits of cork!
Cork Flooring is Good for the Environment
You can have beautiful flooring and feel good about the environment too – cork is an excellent choice! When cork is harvested, it does not damage the tree or stunt its growth in any way, making it a totally renewable resource.
What Type of Cork is Best?
Your needs and design choices will help determine which type of cork is best for you. Tile-shaped cork is ideal for an installation that requires gluing down, and plank-shaped cork works wonderfully over an existing floor. We’re happy to help you make the choice!
The texture of the cork you choose will have the largest impact on the look of the finished floor. The traditional cork texture has small granules of material which give it a highly textured appearance, but you may also be interested in a peeled cork texture, which is a more natural look. But those are not all of the textures and designs available – contact us today to learn more about different cork options, and how we can help you make the best choice for your home!
