What does wine and flooring have in common? Cork. It’s one of the most unique flooring options for oh so many reasons.
Well as you can see from this photo from Pretty Handy Girl apparently cork is really comfortable and soft, after all it’s cork. It’s not hard like the typical ceramic tile you’d see in a kitchen or the very scratchable wood flooring. I know because I too have it in my home and love it.
I’m at the point in my home where I can’t stand my cold, ugly grout, cracked and lifeless looking ceramic tile in the kitchen. I also don’t like my generic engineered wood that came with the house. You can see every foot print and dust particle in the universe sitting on top of the unnatural shinny finish – just yuk! What’s a girl to do? Get cork.
I don’t want to be redundant here so read the article from Globus Cork and see what they say about all the benefits about having cork in the home. It’s pet friendly, kid friendly, it’s a green product, it’s comfortable, easy to clean and comes in so many colors and styles. That’s a lot of good to have in the home.
Why don’t more people have this amazing product in the home? Once you have it in just one room, be warmed because you’ll want it throughout.
Here’s a night time shot of my home bar – see the cork flooring? There are so many reasons I love cork and can’t really say which is my favorite but the huge selling point for me is that it’s forgiving. Meaning, with all the pattern of the cork and it’s natural sheen, you don’t see dust, footprints or anything. I’m not dusting and mopping every other day.
Is that your pooch? So cute! Love the cork flooring idea.
No – I have four cats! He is a cutie though and looks like he loves cork 🙂
Does cork stain easily?
Not at all! Like wood, it has a protective layer of polyurethane on it.
oooohhhh, gotcha. Good info!
