Natural Cork Flooring

Stop by our Wichita flooring store today and check out our Natural Cork flooring options. Cork's popularity has surged over the past couple years and its unique patterns make a beautiful addition to any home. Cork floors are renewable and 100% green, being harvested without injuring the cork oak tree. Most cork flooring is made from the pressed scraps of wine stopper manufacturers, making it a environmentally friendly and recycled.

Cork has fantastic flooring characteristics. Cork is soft underfoot, self-healing and scuff-resistant, a natural insulator and a great investment. Cork flooring is also beautiful, with the varieties of finishes available on today's markets, cork adds originality and exquisite design to a home floor. Where most wood flooring comes in planks, cork comes in both tile and plank formats and can be professionally installed or a DIY project with snap-ins. The finishes that can be applied are numerous, the most common being polyurethane, although any stain may be applied to unfinished tiles or planks. Cork is very easy to care for and, like most wood floors, is easy to sweep or vacuum, though mopping on cork is not advised, as it is a porous wood. Because it is organic, cork tends to fade and discolor over time if exposed to direct sunlight. Proper temperature management is also advised, as wood will naturally swell and shrink throughout the seasons. On top of being beautiful flooring, cork wood contains suberin, a natural chemical that deters mold and insects.

Some detriments to cork floors include, refinish/ resealing or rewaxing every couple years, appliance stamping or scarring, porous where spills or standing water accumulates, and sealant or stain scratches may occur.
