Homeowners Use Cork for Its Beauty and Practicality

WECORK flooring stands out for its beautiful colors and textures, but on a practical level it offers so much more. Although design considerations are certainly important, homeowners also use cork because of it’s inherent properties. No other flooring on earth provides the unique benefits of cork!

Cork Makes Homes Comfortable, Warm, and Quiet

Naturally insulating, cork is both comfortable and warm to walk on. Its 200 million+ enclosed air cells per cubic inch make walking on cork flooring quite literally like walking on air! Cork also improves energy efficiency for homeowners, reducing energy bills.

Cork Adds Peace and Quiet for Homeowners

Cork also adds peace and quiet to the home by reducing sound transfer between rooms – especially helpful for multi-story residences. Cork is a great way to muffle the sound of children playing in a room above, or reduce the echo found with “other” hard surface floors in a media room.

Added Benefits of Cork for Homeowners 

In addition to all the benefits listed above, cork is also hypo-allergenic. That makes it great for people with have allergies. Cork also resists mold, mildew, and insects. Last but not least, no plastics also means no off-gassing! Homeowners can feel great about bringing a quality WECORK flooring product into their home for their family to enjoy and live on.

Adding WECORK to Your Home

Whether you’re renovating, adding a new room, or building a new home, WECORK flooring provides endless opportunities. Although our cork flooring works well in all rooms of the home, it’s particularly well-suited for certain applications such as:

  • Home Gym – for comfort and hygiene
  • Home Theater / Studio – for acoustics and sound control (see also cork wall coverings)
  • Playroom – for warmth, sound control and cleanliness
  • Kitchen – for comfort, when standing for extended periods
  • Basement – for warmth, preventing cold transfer from sub-floors such as cement

Homeowners with other types of flooring such as hardwood, ceramic, and LVT, can also take advantage of cork’s physical properties. Used beneath the flooring, WECORK underlayment provides benefits such as sound control, insulation, and crack protection.
