is a durable option that is ideal for kitchens and bathrooms. Cork floors come in tile form with a distinctive appearance and natural colours that look great in any interior, whatever the style.
People often choose cork flooring as it is very durable and copes well with moisture. It is less affected by friction and impacts than most other hard surfaces because of the way it is composed. Cork floor tiles are 50% air, and when they are subjected to pressure, the gas in the cells is compressed and volume reduces considerably. When released from pressure, the cork recovers its original shape very rapidly – meaning it lasts for many years.

Why Buy Cork Flooring?
As well as being strong and easy to install, cork is a great insulator, so it can help to bring your energy costs down. It also reduces the transmission of sound and vibration.
Cork flooring is extremely compressible, yet it also has terrific strength. Cork reduces heat loss in rooms, and can even minimise body heat loss through the feet. Cork naturally maintains a comfortable temperature, without ever getting too hot or too cold. If you like to walk around your home barefoot, cork is a great choice!
In addition to the above benefits, cork flooring is a fire inhibitor – it resists the spread of fire and does not release any toxic gases upon combustion. It also repels bugs, termites and mould due to the naturally-occurring substances held within it.
Cork flooring is sustainable and costs a lot less than most other types of flooring tiles and planks, making it a good way to alter a room without breaking the bank.
