Cork FlooringWhether your kitchen is traditional or modern, cork is a flooring option most people don’t consider, especially for their kitchen. Here are some great things you might not know about cork flooring.

  • Cork flooring is an eco-conscious material because it’s a highly renewable resource.
  • It’s made from the bark of cork oak which leaves the trees intact.
  • Cork flooring is resistant to mold and mildew, making it one of the most hypoallergenic options available.
  • It’s filled with air cells that make it spongey and soft, which is great for anyone who knows the back pain that can result from cooking
  • Also a plus in the kitchen, cork provides a softer place for dishes and glasses to land, so they’re less likely to break.
  • Cork flooring can provide warmth and sound insulation for a boisterous room like the kitchen, where we know everyone loves to gather.
