Cork has been used for flooring for over a century. A finished cork floor can have the look of textured hardwood, the soft give of carpet, and the easy maintenance of vinyl. Throw in that cork is an environmentally friendly flooring option and you’ve got a contender on the best flooring material known to man.
Bring forth the drama without going completely black. Our Walnut Burl modern bathroom flooring cork floor tiles blend a beautiful wash of dark shades to create a “deep” mid-tone flooring. Several hues of color exist within the depths of our Walnut Burl planks, as a blend of walnut, tobacco, acacia, and espresso give this pattern its richness and depth. The design comes natural, the flow guarantying that no two piece is exactly alike. As a darker, but neutral flooring the tone-on-tone colors will cool a room that may be too open but wishes to maintain calm.
Our 8mm cork glue down tiles comes as 5/16 in x 12 in x 24 in—shaped planks, this square-edged design will install seamlessly, allowing your floor to appear as one large finished unit. For best results we recommend that our Walnut Burl glue down tiles be installed on a subfloor that is clean and level or only on ‘At or above grade’ concrete floors, (Please refer to our section on ‘Cork Tiles Installation Instructions’ for details and tips). No separate underlayment is required since our 5/16 inch thick planks are 100% low-density sound absorbing cork.

Cork is derived from the Quercus Suber, a species of the oak tree in the Mediterranean primarily from Spain and Portugal. The cork oak tree is remarkable renewable resource as its bark can be harvested every 9 years without cause of any damage to the tree’s existence, or that of the environment. The majority of cork that is harvested is reserved to make bottle stoppers for the wine industry around the world accounting for around 60% of the market share. It is the waist that is where the cork engineered flooring industry comes from. This makes cork an excellent green building material to use in the home.
Cork’s structure is comprised of millions of air pockets, basically 50% of cork is actually air. The cellular structure of cork makes cork tile a natural insulator. Not only will these green floors be warm under foot they also absorb sound. Although it is more commonly used as a natural flooring material, it’s structure also makes this material ideal for walls and ceilings. Suberin, the waxy, natural substance found in cork plays another natural role in corks resistance to mould and mildew. Cork flooring is anti microbial and has been proven to be insect resistant as well.
