The word cork immediately brings to mind wine bottles and bulletin boards. However, cork can also be a great flooring option.
Cork is a natural, renewable option. It’s harvested from the bark of cork trees, which means that the trees don’t even have to be cut down to make your floor. They’ll just keep growing and producing more cork bark.
It’s also durable. It’s resistant to liquids and gases and can last up to 40 years. Cork is even fire-resistant, and only melts or ignites if the temperatures are very high.
Cork is also cushiony, since it gives a bit when it’s stepped on. It’s also a great choice for rooms that you want to keep warm and quiet, since cork is a natural insulator.
