Cork is a recent, growing trend in flooring. Customers and designers are excited by its completely renewable, eco-friendly nature, not to mention the quality and beauty that cork flooring offers. Cork is harvested from the bark of living cork oak trees — no trees are ever cut down — and the bark regrows to be harvested again in just a few years time.
Cork comes in many different patterns and over 100 different colours. While easy to maintain and highly durable, cork is actually considered a soft flooring. It has a slight give to it that cushions dropped objects, is comfortable underfoot if you’re on your feet for long periods of time, and also acts as a natural insulator for both heat and noise.
