Is cork flooring for you?

One of the best ways to decide if cork floors are for you is to test them out. A lot of people have never walked around on cork before or lived with it so they’re not sure what to expect.

Cork has several advantages to it. For one, it’s a soft material. That makes it a great flooring option for people with knee issues or people who cannot walk around on harder surfaces like stone or hardwood. Overall, it’s a very comfortable flooring material.

Also, cork has the advantage of being mold and mildew resistant. So if you’re looking for floors to install in your basement, cork is definitely something that you should consider. Since basements are more susceptible to mold and mildew growth, particularly after flooding, you’ll have some peace of mind knowing that your floors will be safe.

It’s not recommended to place cork floors in areas that will have a lot of humidity or direct sunlight because it can shrink and expand with changes in temperature.
