We shall take a close look on cork and offer you some cork flooring ideas and take the advantages and disadvantages of the flooring under the microscope.

Cork is a very resistant material, which is produced from the bark of the cork oak. The evergreen deciduous tree has existed for over 30 million years and can reach a height of over 20 meters. It is particularly common in southern Europe and North Africa – Portugal and Spain are the two largest exporting countries, the bark can be removed without damaging the tree – therefore cork is considered as an environmentally friendly alternative to the usual wood flooring.

Pros cork flooring offers many benefits – thanks to its good insulation properties, the current cost is significantly reduced. The material also has an excellent insulation – and is therefore a popular choice for families with small children or for home owners. Cork also has a dust repellent surface and needs no special care – so perfect for the bathroom or kids room if kids had asthma.

Cons – the cork can be fairly easy to install, but you should definitely have a degree of craftsmanship. This is mainly because that the material can stretch slightly over time. Thus, the floor should not bulge the cork and the so-called expansion joints should be laid at a certain distance from each other.
