Advantages & Disadvantages
The main advantages of cork flooring are that it is quite sturdy, shock-absorbent, and it has a low impact on the environment. Cork trees have a much faster regrowth rate than traditional timber, meaning that harvesting them for flooring is much less harmful on the environment. Cork flooring is also categorized as an eco-friendly flooring type because it repels bugs, dust, and other allergens, making it an excellent choice for homes with asthma, allergies, pets, or kids. Additionally, cork flooring is both sound- and shock-absorbent, so it will muffle sound, feel soft and cushy underfoot, and fragile objects like wine glasses won’t break as easily if dropped on it.
On the other hand, one drawback of feeling so soft and springy is that cork flooring will hold indents and impressions left by heavy furniture. So, it is recommended that you use furniture pads or coasters on your heftier objects to avoid this problem. Also, because it is so absorbent cork flooring can be susceptible to easily absorbing spills.
Our partnerships with top flooring manufacturers allow us to give our customers the best quality products and most popular brands at reasonable prices. We have access to a diverse array of styles and colors of cork flooring, so we’re certain you’ll find something that suits your needs and personal style.
