When we remodeled our kitchen...we chose to replace our maple floors with cork...it was a researched decision....and one we are pleased with abolutely every day. When you think of cork, if you are not familiar with the many looks and colors available, you are probably thinking "bulletin board" and we don't blame you...before we began our research, we thought the same thing. Too much brown in this mottled appearance...not the look we wanted for this room.
But Alas...further research and the "bend over backwards" customer service from Wendy Werner and her staff at Carpet Town proved that there were so many more options in both texture and color...we could have all the wonderful attributes of a cork floor and the color we wanted besides !
Lots of colors and textures....and as we complete the remodeling of our second bath...cork will the choice for the flooring in that room.
Why Cork ? Here are just some of the reasons we suggest considering cork flooring:
- A green renewable resource - using only the bark of the tree
- Soft under foot, comfortable as well as durable
- Resists water, mold and mildew
- Easily installed
