Cork flooring is an environmentally-friendly flooring option offering a unique style that has become very trendy and popular among home owners. It is a completely natural and renewable material made from the bark of cork oak trees that are native to parts of Europe. Studio 222 Calgary Ltd. offers a full range of flooring options including hardwood flooring, tile, carpet, vinyl and cork flooring. They share the many advantages of cork flooring:
Cork flooring is attractive and diverse in style.
You choose from a variety of styles, colours, grain patterns and styles. You can use cork to mimic exotic wood grains or get creative with cork tiles, blending a variety of colours, shades and patterns. If you have an artistic eye and flare for home design, you’ll love getting creative with cork flooring!
Cork flooring is long-lasting.
Cork flooring is very durable and when properly cared for can last you for years to come. It is resistant to cracking and spills. Since it is a softer surface, it will bounce back if indented by furniture or other objects. Any permanent damage will easily blend into the overall pattern of your cork flooring and will not be noticed.
Cork flooring is healthy for your home.
Cork is resistant to mold, mildew and bacteria. Your cork floors will not collect dust, dirt, dander and other allergens making it a better choice for those with asthma, allergies and other respiratory issues. It is also non-toxic so you don’t have to worry about it off-gassing into your space.
Cork flooring is warm and comfortable.
Cork has the ability to hold room temperature, so it will not feel cold on your feet like other hard flooring surfaces. It is also soft and acts like a cushion under your feet. This is great for people with joint or back issues and makes it a good fit for any place in your home that you will be standing for long periods of time like the kitchen or laundry room.
Cork flooring is environmentally-friendly.
Trees are not cut down to make cork flooring. The bark is harvested from living trees, and unlike most trees, the cork trees native to parts of Europe have the type of bark that actually regenerates after it’s been stripped away. Plus, the manufacturing process for cork flooring generates almost no waste. Learn how cork flooring is made. This makes cork a completely sustainable flooring option for those who want a green option.
