Cork flooring is a fantastic option for many homes. It’s a durable and resilient surface, and it also happens to be an extremely eco-friendly building material. Installing cork flooring may seem intimidating for some homeowners, but it’s actually even easier than working with hardwood floors. The folks over at This Old House have put together a step-by-step guide to help walk you through the process.
Aside from its durability, cork also provides a slightly more forgiving surface than wood or tile. It’s quieter and more comfortable underfoot, and also warmer when the temperature drops. Cork flooring’s primary limitation is moisture, so it’s not ideal for wet areas like bathrooms, but cork is a versatile option for most living areas.
This Old House ranks installing a cork floor as an “Easy to Moderate” do-it-yourself project, and you should be able to complete a medium-size room in an afternoon. Hit the link for the detailed installation guide:
