Cork flooring may be a good idea for children's study room
Cork flooring may be a good idea for children's study room While many children are preparing to head back to school, some parents may be looking for a way to provide their youngsters with an ideal place do their homework. The Province reports that there are several components to consider when choosing a study sanctuary.
According to the news source, the most crucial aspect is that it must be distraction-free. Many parents like to get their children out of their bedrooms so that, if they need help with their work they can easily ask for it.
"I like to have them in the dining room or [home] office, where, if they need help, I'm always close at hand," Mimi Bice, a mother of two, told the news outlet. "When my 12-year-old is in his room, I'm not sure how much work he's getting done."
The room should have a calm, relaxing feel to it as well, and experts recommend having appropriate lighting. Industry insider Trish Elgen told the news provider that a good reading lamp is essential. She added that the floor of the room should be easy to clean and suggested cork flooring to accomplish that goal.
Cork flooring provides homeowners with a number of other benefits as well. TLC.com reports that, along with being easy to clean, the material is a terrific insulator because it is made up of millions of air cells.
