Cork Flooring Not Just For The Home

The more I look around, the more I see cork flooring making its way into restaurants, retail stores and office buildings. Not every business might have the same reason for installing cork flooring but it sure is making an impact, both with its beauty and its green sustainable composition.

Cork is harvested from the cork oak tree and this is done without harming the tree of the environment. A cork oak tree can be harvested approximately every 9-10 years which equates to about 20 times over its lifespan. The first harvest should not take place before its maturity which is about 25 years old.

Cork has many natural properties that make cork flooring so appealing. Cork contains something called suberin which makes it naturally resistant to insects and fire. It has a honeycomb like structure which makes the floors resilient and comfortable to stand on. This is why cork floors are often seen in kitchens where there is a tendency to stand for long periods of time.

Most recently I saw cork flooring installed in a beautiful wine bar; appropriate to the business but also helpful for employees. I asked one of the employees about the floor and he said that it’s the most comfortable floor he has ever worked on. As you can imagine, working in a wine bar calls for long hours on the feet which can be very tiresome. The owner chose cork flooring to keep in theme with the wine bar of course, but also knew his staff would love walking on cork instead of something like concrete or tile. This particular server said after working on cork floors, he would never want to go back to anything else because it’s that much better.
