Cork flooring appeals to musicians
Cork flooring appeals to musicians Although it may seem like one's floor may be simply a place to stand, the Montreal Gazette reports that choosing the correct material could result in a bevy of different benefits.
According to the news source, one of the most common trends in interior design is using eco-friendly materials. There are certainly a number of options for flooring, but one popular choice is cork, and one of the material's most unheralded advantages is how it improves the acoustics of the room, making it very popular among musicians.
"I've had professional classical musicians record their demos at home because their cork floor gave their home sound-studio audio quality," design expert Adrian Shewchuk told the news provider.
While the material is appealing to musicians, it boasts a number of other alluring qualities as well. According to TLC.com, cork is comprised of millions of air cells which, along with creating better acoustics, can also result in better insulation for a home as well as relieve some back and neck pain by giving the floor a cushioning effect.
