It’s not at all unusual to become a bit bored with your old décor. To liven things up a bit, most people typically make a few changes to a room, like changing the curtains or perhaps a few pieces of furniture. However, with the same old flooring and the same old wallpaper, the room does not look very much different. On the other hand, changing the flooring every so often is not something that most people will even consider. It is expensive and most cannot afford it. Or can you? |
The good news with cork tile is that you can actually change the flooring and the entire look of your home without stretching your budget. Cork flooring is affordable even on the tightest budget. What’s more, it is easy to lay down so you can do it yourself and do not need to call in a professional. It is also easy to maintain so you know you are not going to be spending hours just doing upkeep. With cork you get the added advantage of either changing it often because it is affordable and easy to lay down or you can choose to keep it for as long as you like because it is extremely durable. Just knowing that you have these choices can be a relief to all homeowners everywhere.
Cork tile is not just practical. Besides its very practical aspects of affordability, practicality and durability, it is also versatile and good looking. You can find cork tile in a wide range of colors and designs so you know you can find something suitable no matter what your existing décor looks like. Looking for sober, solemn shades for the living room and the master bedroom? No problem! Looking for brighter, zanier colors for the kids’ bedrooms and for the dining room? No problem there too. What’s great about cork flooring is that, no matter what color you choose, it gives the home a warm, inviting look unlike stone flooring, which has a cold look.
In addition to all of the above benefits, cork floors also act as shock absorbers and absorb the impact as you walk over them. This makes them more comfortable not
just for walking on but also for standing on for long periods of time. The shock absorbing properties of cork come from its cellular structure. The numerous tiny cells are filled with air. This air compresses as you put a foot on it and then when you lift your foot off, the air expands back again. This allows the cork to absorb the shock of the impact, which also helps protect your knees and joints.
The air-filled cellular structure also offers a host of other benefits. It offers insulation against noise and temperature as well. When something is dropped, it absorbs the sound. With a cork floor you will find that you do not need to raise or lower the thermostat too much during the summers or the winters. This means lower electricity bills and even more overall savings.
Using Cork Tile is an excellent and affordable way to give your interior décor a fresh new look. iCork Flooring offers you a superb cork floors range at affordable prices.
