Posted on December 14, 2012 by iFLOORCork floors have a lot of exciting benefits. They are good for the environment, easy to clean, quiet, and they look great. In many ways, cork flooring is perfect flooring, but the best part is how it feels.Cork is full of tiny cells that trap air and gives it insulating properties. It helps keep warm air from escaping and feels warmer than other types of hard surface floors. This is why cork is a great choice for bedrooms where a common complaint is having to roll out of bed and feel the cold floor. Many people will just put a rug down, but with cork, you don't have to. The floor will feel just like the bed you rolled out of.Several of us living in colder areas of the country are always trying to find ways to keep our homes warmer. What a lot of people don't realize is how much heat is lost through the floor. For example, an open crawlspace under main living areas can make it very hard to efficiently heat a room. When you install cork flooring and cork underlayment in one of those rooms, you're adding valuable insulation that keeps the warm air in and the cold air out.Cork floors aren't just for bedrooms. They are great for the main living areas, kitchens, play rooms, theater rooms (great for acoustics) and just about anywhere. Cork floors are stylish, easy to maintain and comfortable. If you're in the market for new flooring and thinking about ways to stay warmer in the winter months, take a look at the different types of cork flooring now being offered.
