Floating Cork floors are a naturally decorative and contemporary option to traditional flooring. These planks are available in a wide variety of unique styles, patterns and shades to compliment any décor or furniture style, and will add character and warmth to any room. Besides being decorative, floating cork floors are also functional. Cork is a natural insulator – both to temperature and acoustically.
Cork’s innate renewability is considered its finest feature as it can be harvested from the outer bark of the cork oak tree (Quercus Suber) without causing harm and leaving the tree to regenerate. Cork trees, generally found in the Mediterranean area, are slow growing and can live up to 250 years with the harvesting cycle typically occurring every nine years. Cork’s naturally anti-microbial attributes combat mould and its anti-static surface reduces dust and toxin absorption. This not only makes it ideal for people with allergies, but allows it to be a material that contributes to cleaner air space. Its soft surface also results in less pressure on people with knee problems or seniors looking for absorption support under their feet.
