Made from the bark of living cork oak trees in Spain, Portugal and Tunisia, cork flooring is a great choice if you’re looking for an eco-friendly option. When cork is harvested, it simply regrows, so no trees need to be cut down.
Cork flooring has been around forever, but has risen in popularity throughout recent years for its eco-friendliness, its look, and because it’s kinder to your feet and joints when you walk on it.
If you’re passionate about protecting our environment, then you’ll appreciate all the benefits that cork has to offer. Cork flooring is not only completely natural and easily replenish able, it’s also biodegradable.
The natural look, shape, and texture of cork gives it a special allure to any home. Natural cork provides a warm and comfortable ambiance. But if you’re looking for something different, we offer cork flooring in six different patterns and over 100 colours. You can choose from a variety of shades of brown, tan, grey, red, green, yellow and blue — there are plenty of neutral shades too.
Cork is simple to maintain; it only requires regular sweeping or mopping to remove debris. This flooring is given a finishing seal to provide additional protection against water.
While cork isn’t a hard surface, you don’t have to worry about dents as much as you’d think — its strength lies in its softness. Cork absorbs impacts very well, and has natural memory for its true shape. If you drop something, it will essentially bounce back often without leaving a dent.
Cork is known to be very comfortable to stand, sit and walk on. This makes it great for rooms where you tend to stand for long periods of time, like your kitchen. If you have young children or elderly parents, then cork flooring is softer if they should fall.
Cork flooring is a great insulator for both heat and noise. Cork’s cell structure acts like air pockets, providing an effective barrier that can help your home retain heat and reduce echoes in larger spaces.
