Before examining the cork flooring, we should mention something about its origin. The cork oak is a tree of the Mediterranean regions (especially Portugal and Spain), exploited for its bark gives the cork material. After the first round, you get a dark brown bark, best known for its insulating properties.

Cork flooring is available in three variants - the pressed plates (in one cork layer or multilayer plates), a parquet clip which is mainly composed of cork granules and flooring cork "solid" . This is the material obtained in the first round of the bark which is usually available as tile or mosaic.

Cork is a very strong and durable material that fits perfectly into modern interiors. The flooring in this natural material offers good thermal insulation and also has sound insulation properties. Compared to tiles and laminate, it is perceived as warm and pleasant to the eyes. It is therefore perfectly suited to areas of "traffic" moderate as the bedroom, living room, dining room and nursery. Softer than wood and harder than carpets with natural flexibility, you feel comfortable walking barefoot on a cork floor covering. When the surface is treated with special products, cork is also antistatic. Furthermore, it is considered easy maintenance in dust material which is also beneficial for families with pets and small children.

A great asset of cork flooring is that it is fireproof and resistant to abrasion. In addition, small scratches are barely visible on its naturally irregular surface. Its price varies by manufacturer, but we can say it is in the average gold area - the plates are available for about 40-60 euros per square meter, which is roughly comparable to solid wood floor and natural stone tiles.

The disadvantages of cork

Even if the cork has many advantages, some disadvantages must be mentioned. If the cork flooring is long exposed to sunlight, the material can change color. As a natural material, cork is porous and has a tendency to absorb odors, making the flooring less suitable for the kitchen, for example. We must therefore pay attention to cleaning agents and, preferably, wipe the floor with a dry or slightly damp cloth. Greater than 50% moisture shortens the life of the cork, and it is thus not a floor covering suitable for humid areas. Finally, cork is relatively soft, which means that moving the tables and chairs can leave visible marks on its surface.
