Floor buyers with an eye toward the environment can also take a serious look at cork flooring because it is made from a sustainable resource. Cork is the outer bark of the cork oak tree, an evergreen oak tree native to southwest Europe and northwest Africa. Cork is a renewable, sustainable resource that can be harvested from a mature tree (one that's at least 25 years old) once every 9-10 years without harming the tree or the environment.
But that is not where cork ends. Nature made it a top notch material as well, endowing cork with some pretty spectacular benefits that allows it to do multiple jobs. Cork is natural thermal insulator. The millions of tightly-packed air cells found in corks cellular structure works like a memory foam type barrier to keep unwanted temperatures out and ambient ones in.
The distinctive style of cork flooring in modern interior design, the creation of space with style and personality starts with a beautiful and expressive floors. Cork comes from the bark of the cork oak tree. It is removed from the trunk by hand without ever damaging the tree and every year a new bark grows making it a renewable and sustainable resource.
Worried about upkeep? Don’t. Cork flooring is easy to maintain if you follow its care instructions. With minimal care, it can keep its look for up to 40 years. It is hard to scratch or tear.
