A flooring solution like cork flooring is not only attractive, but also takes the issue of sound into account, and can make all the difference in helping to create an environment of serenity. With cork flooring, made from a natural material, which naturally dampens sound, you have an ideal solution. One of the main draws of natural cork flooring is its renew ability, taken from the bark of the cork oak and processed as flooring with no damage to the original plant.
In addition to its environmentally friendly reputation, cork flooring's benefits of durability and attractiveness are not lessened by its "green" attributes, making cork flooring an extremely viable choice for any flooring application. Cork is recyclable as well as biodegradable, and no synthetic material can match it in terms of function or feel. Natural cork is a unique material, worthy for use in many applications, and particularly for flooring.
