Kids’ areas are the ideal space for cork flooring. Cork kids room flooring provides a soft, durable, noise reducing floor that provides the perfect surface for areas that are used by children. Cork flooring offers a smooth, easy to clean surface that wears and wears. Cork’s antimicrobial properties help keep their space free of allergens. A fully sealed cork floor (site finished with two coats of water based polyurethane) means a worry free surface built to last.
Cork’s famous sound reducing properties are more than equal to the task of keeping kids spaces calm and quiet. Cork’s ability to absorb mid to high frequency sounds (like the high pitched sounds of children’s laughter) is well documented. Adding a cork underlay to a cork floating floor greatly reduces volume and echoes from escaping.
