Why you should consider a cork floor

Home Improvement
Remodeling or refurbishing any space in your home can be fun as well as a tedious task. Some renovation jobs can take very long to complete and not everyone has that much time on hand. Paint jobs and flooring are two redecorating areas that are like a complete overhaul and can prove to be very time consuming. A floor makeover is something that you should give a sufficient amount of thought to and there are several things that will have to be considered. Carpets look good and provide the right amount of comfort but are literally like dust magnets.

They also tend to trap moisture and tend to smell dank in poorly insulated houses. They are very high-maintenance and have to be vacuumed on a regular basis. In addition to this, they tend to stain very fast and are very expensive to have cleaned. Wood is a good option but is not moisture resistant. It has to be varnished or polished every now and then is no good in kitchen and bathroom areas. Wooden flooring also tends to resonate and even footstep sounds can get carried across wooden floors. Ceramic and stone tiles are very durable but tend to be very cold and do not provide any insulation from the cold.

Contrary to all of these, a cork floor is an all-rounder. It looks good, is durable, moisture-resistant and has sound-proofing qualities. It is easy to install and can be set on any kind of sub floor. It can be used very effectively in common spaces like a living room and provides a lot of functionality in bathroom and kitchen areas as well. Cork is also used as an underlay and can be used to level-out uneven flooring in the home. It has natural insulation properties and is flame-resistant. It provides a cushioned effect and is very comfortable. It is anti-fungal and mildew does not gather on it.

Apart from this, it is dust-resistant, easy to maintain and it lasts decades. If these are not reasons enough for you to opt for cork flooring, it is also a very eco-friendly material. It is acquired from a renewable source and is a bio-degradable material. Cork underlay with a cork top-floor provides very impact resistant and sound resistant properties. It resists dents and scratches and is available in a range of patterns and colors. The material is also very lightweight and you do not have to remove the older flooring to install this new one. Though cork cannot be considered to be an inexpensive material, it is not an excessively expensive one either.

A cork floor is available in tile and plank form. You can use the glue-down variety or the floating floor one. There are several online companies that sell and install cork flooring. They can visit your home and provide you with a quote. Always hire the services of a reputed store. They will ensure that the job is carried-out in an effective and timely manner. The floating floor is like a jigsaw puzzle and the pieces can be clipped together. This makes it an ideal choice for DIY enthusiasts.
