Cork Is an Excellent Option for Basement Flooring

Home Improvement
Choosing basement flooring can be quite a daunting prospect. You want it to be more than just a storage place for all your extra boxes and other knick knacks. If it is on the larger side it would be a good place for the kids to hang out and just romp around or you could even convert it into a nice little den. However, you are reluctant to spend too much on having to do an entire makeover.

One way that you can make your basement look good without having to spend too much is by choosing cork flooring. Cork has several qualities that make it a good choice for flooring in the entire home and especially in places like the basement and even the kitchen.

For one thing, cork is water resistant and the basement and kitchen are two rooms in the house that are more prone to getting damp because of various reasons. The basement tends to get damp because of its very position underground whereas the kitchen tends to get damp because of liquid spills and while washing dishes and even while cooking. Carpeting is not practical under such circumstances as it can tend to get moldy when it remains damp too long and it will start giving off a dank, moldy smell. Hardwood flooring is also not very practical as it stains very easily at places where any liquid spills on it and after a while it can start to look quite shabby. Cork on the other hand does not get affected by water. It stays resistant to it and does not warp or stain or damage in any way. Cork is also mold resistant so there is no fear of it getting moldy even if it gets damp.

When choosing cork flooring, you will find there are two options that you can choose from. Cork glue down tile flooring and cork floating flooring. Installing cork floating floors in the kitchen and basement is a better than choosing the glue down tiles for several reasons. For one thing, the floating flooring is easier to install and you can save money by doing it yourself. There is no need to glue or nail down the tiles. You simply interlock the tiles with one another and you are done.

Another advantage of installing cork floating floors in the kitchen and basement is that you do not have to remove the original flooring before the installation. You can simply place the new cork tiles over the existing flooring or the subfloor. The only thing you need to make sure is that the surface is clean, dry and fairly even.

Lastly, cork flooring comes in a wide variety of sizes, colors and designs and it is not as expensive as some of the other flooring options. This means you can get any type of basement flooring or kitchen flooring that you like without having to worry that it is going to cost you too much. And when you choose cork floating flooring, it is going to end up costing you even less.

Installing Cork Floating Floors in the Kitchen and basement is an excellent idea because of the water and mold resistant quality of cork. If you are thinking of doing up your Basement flooring , first go to iCork floor and take a look at the wide range of options they offer you when it comes to cork tiles.
