Cork flooring is very quiet, you don’t get the thumping of clicking sounds when stepped on like hardwood, stone, or ceramic floors. Cork has a cellular structure that allows it to absorb sounds. The cell structure of cork is like a honeycomb only it is filled with air, and not honey. These trapped air pockets are what acts as a sound insulator.

A cork floor is capable of taking much more abuse than most other types of flooring under a higher rate of use.
