If you’re considering installing a cork floor anywhere in your home, you’re on the right track. This intriguing alternative is becoming more popular with each passing day.
Cork flooring is essentially made from mostly materials leftover from the manufacturing of other cork products like bulletin boards and wine corks. The original source material is harvested from the bark of a cork tree, leaving the tree itself intact and available for future harvests. Even the HDF core that serves as the foundation for the cork wear layer is also largely made from recycled materials, giving you a truly green floor.
Beyond its benefits as a sustainable and renewable resource, cork has an impressive list of benefits as flooring. Its naturally porous construction traps air creating a barrier of valuable insulation that actually prevents heating and cooling loss. It’s also why cork flooring is warmer to the touch than other hard surface floors.
A common complaint among consumers (especially those with high or vaulted ceilings) is the sound of the floor. The nature of cork deadens sound, producing an acoustical barrier and a quieter step. Homes prone to echoing or that allow sound to travel easily from room to room will benefit from having a cork floor installed.
Cork is also naturally hypoallergenic and resistant to mold and mildew. For families with sensitivity to allergies, cork is an excellent choice. It doesn’t harbor the dust and allergens like carpet would, and is considerably easier to maintain. It might not be as durable as hardwood, bamboo, or laminate flooring, but cork flooring can be very durable. Like hardwood and bamboo, the cork surface is coated with multiple coats of polyurethane with aluminum oxide. This helps protect the floor from scratches caused by children, pets, and all the things that give our floors a difficult time. Few things in our homes take the beating our floors do, but the right cork flooring is up to the challenge.
iFLOOR has an amazing selection of these floors in a wide spectrum of styles and colors. Each has been tested by us and has to meet our exacting standards before we offer it to you.

When you purchase a cork floor from iFLOOR, you’re getting something more than flooring. You’re getting peace of mind.
