Learn about the benefits of cork over other types of floors

Learn about the benefits of cork over other types of floors, like its sound suppression abilities, thermal insulation properties, high comfort level and suitability for use by allergy sufferers. Without doubt, cork truly is a remarkable material and is one that has few equals in the world of wood. Cork floor tiles are comparable to parquet but with the added benefits of insulating against both temperature and noise. Imagine the perfect floor…beautiful to look at, yet easy to care for…quiet, soft and warm to the touch, yet durable enough to handle all kinds of traffic – pets, children, high heels… fashionable and fits any decor, yet insulates against sound, noise and temperature change. Cork, as a natural product, warms and enriches any interior. Cork flooring always blends in well with other decorations and furniture and comes in a wide range of colors, from its familiar honey tones to green, red, chocolate and black. As well, production of Cork tiles is environmentally friendly. No cork trees are cut down, only the bark is peeled without destroying the tree, and it grows back within nine years, ready to be harvested again.
