Help the Environment by Choosing Cork Flooring

Cork flooring comes from the bark of the cork tree. It is considered sustainable flooring, because the floor material is derived from bark that grows back quickly. In addition to being eco-friendly, floors made out of cork bring a fresh, modern look to any room of your home. Unlike hardwood, cork does not take years to grow back so you can feel good about using this flooring in your home.
Cork comes in different shades as manufacturers of this flooring tint it with various stains and finishes. You’ll find that cork flooring is very durable not only because of its natural composition but also because the floor tiles or planks are coated with a high tech coating that imparts incredible durability and sometimes a shiny or glossy finish. You can also get untreated cork, and cork floors that have a low sheen clear coating for protection.
To find the best value, comparing different flooring choices can help you narrow down the vast selection. You want to get a floor that is easy to install, meets your needs for performance and durability, is good for the environment and that fits your sense of style. Also, your price range will need to be considered to ensure you don’t pay more than you can afford.
