Walking All Over It

Three Reasons To Use Cork Flooring In Your Home

If you're not overly happy with the flooring in one or more of the rooms in your home and are ready to make a change, it's a good idea to visit a local flooring store to assess your options. Even if you have a rough idea of what flooring type you want, learning about other flooring materials may help you to find a product that will be a better fit. One type of flooring that may catch your attention is cork flooring, which is commonly sold as individual tiles. Cork flooring is brown, with lots of natural speckles that help to give it character. Here are some reasons that you may want to use cork flooring in your home.

Soft For Your Feet

When you step onto cork flooring, the first thing that you'll likely notice is how this material feels soft underfoot. You'll especially notice the softness when you're in bare or sock feet, rather than wearing shoes. There are certain types of flooring that offer numerous benefits but are noticeably hard underfoot. If you sometimes suffer from sore feet or you simply like the idea of a soft surface beneath you, cork flooring can be a good choice for your home. This is especially true in areas in which you do a lot of standing, such as the kitchen.

Easy To Deal With Damage

While you probably don't want to think about your cork floor ever sustaining damage, it can be a relief to know that should any damage occur in the future, it will be easy to fix. If one or more particular cork tiles are damaged, you can pull them out and replace them. With other types of flooring, it may be necessary to redo the entire room because you can't remove just one section of the floor. When you shop for cork flooring, buy more tiles than you need so that you'll have some extras in case you need them in the future.

Mold Resistant

If you have a member of your family who suffers from an allergy to mold, it's important to choose the right type of flooring. Cork is mold resistant, which means that even if it gets wet, you won't have to worry about mold developing. This makes this flooring type a safe choice that won't pose any health risk to your loved one. Learn more about cork flooring and obtain some samples that you can take home by visiting a flooring store in your community.

Walking All Over It

When someone says they got walked all over, they often mean they got taken advantage of. Of course, if your floor could talk, it would say the same thing, but it would have a very different meaning. Floors are meant for walking over. That's why we choose comfortable materials, like carpets, for rooms where we plan on doing a lot of standing. Of course, we sometimes have to choose something that's easier to clean, like tile, knowing that it is less comfortable. Well, that's enough writing about flooring for now.
