Advantages & Disadvantages
The primary benefits of cork flooring are that it is environmentally friendly, shock-absorbent, and quite sturdy. Cork trees have a higher regrowth rate than traditional timber, which classifies them as a renewable resource. This also means that harvesting cork to use for flooring has a lower environmental impact. Additionally, cork flooring is sound- and shock-absorbent, which means it will feel soft underfoot, muffle sound, and delicate objects are less likely to break if dropped on it. Cork flooring also repels mold, pests, and other allergens, so it’s an excellent choice for houses with allergies, asthma, pets, or kids.
However, one drawback of being so springy is that cork flooring will hold impressions and indents from heavy furniture. It is recommended that you use furniture pads or coasters to protect your floors from this problem. Also, since cork flooring is so absorbent, it can be susceptible to absorbing spills quickly.
We have access to a wide array of colors and styles of cork flooring, so we’re certain you will find a product that suits your needs or personal aesthetic.
