Cork floors are starting to become very popular in the United States and offering a beautiful and unique finish. It can be used in a kitchen, bathroom, or in the entire home. This is a flooring that you must consider when deciding to change the flooring in your home.

The cork that is used for cork floors is harvested from a cork oak tree. This is not like when hardwood floors are made because the cork tree is not cut down to produce the flooring. The cork from the cork tree is harvested every nine years. One side of the tree is stripped of the cork and this is the cork that is used to manufacture the flooring. So the tree is in fact is not killed and the forest can keep growing being unharmed, like new cork floors. It is a good choice for the environment if you chose cork floors.

Cork trees can live for a couple centuries this is because they are not killed in this cork harvesting process. The process that is used to obtain hardwood floors is one that kills the trees and the new trees need to grow for up to fourty years before becoming mature. The cork flooring is made from the waste product from the cork that is used in wine bottles, which is not to be confused with new floors. Therefore cork is harvested and the floors are made in an environmentally fashion.

Remember that this doesn’t mean that the cork floors are not attractive because they are some of the most beautiful floors that are made today. You can choose from a variety of colors and styles too. Any color and many patterns to choose from such as cork, hardwood, or marble, and new hardwood floors. The product that you come up with will be unique and there are so many to create.

By deciding to install cork floors into your home instead of any other flooring you are doing the environment a huge favour that it now needs. Your cork floors will also be a conversation topic for many years.
