Have you ever wondered what cork is made out of? It’s actually a completely natural flooring material. The soft spongey cork is harvested from the bark of cork trees. No trees are cut down, and the bark quickly regrows to be harvested over and over again. More homeowners care about their home’s impact on the environment, so we are pleased to say that cork is an incredibly sustainable flooring option.

Soft, Durable, And Noise-Free

Naturally, people spend a lot of time walking and standing on their floors! Floors such as hardwood and tile tend to be quite hard to stand on, and can irritate your joints over long periods of time. If you are a bit more sensitive to standing on harder surfaces, consider a cork floor. The structure of cork is naturally soft. Despite the softness, cork is incredibly durable and will not scratch, crack, or dent like other floors. Additionally, cork works wonders as a sound barrier. It insulates and absorbs sounds, making it perfect for multi-level homes.
