Versatility is Key

One of the biggest benefits of working with cork is its incredible versatility. Perfect for both commercial and residential properties, cork offers many perks for your space, including:


Crafted from the bark of cork oak trees, cork is unique from many other flooring selections because the tree does not need to be cut down in order to harvest the materials used. This makes cork a fantastic way to reduce your carbon footprint and uphold a green focus throughout your space with ease.


When it comes to standing up to daily wear and tear as well as holding out for the future, cork has you covered. Cork’s spongy yet dense nature makes it incredibly resistant to cracking, furniture dents or abrasions, as well as impermeable to gas and liquids. Best of all, when cared for correctly, cork flooring can last as long as 40 years! Can you say solid investment?!

Allergens Not Welcome

Looking to breathe fresh air throughout the home and reduce your exposure to allergens, mould, and mildew? Cork is naturally resistant to bacteria, meaning you (and your lungs) can rest easy knowing your floors are least likely to absorb and harbour irritants.

Safety First

Cork is remarkably fire-resistant and only melts at very high temperatures, making it a great fit for commercial spaces, as well as your home.

Easy On The Toes

Cork acts as a natural cushion underfoot, which makes it perfect for areas of the home where long periods spent standing might cause strain on joints such as workspaces, kitchens, fitness areas, and more. As an added benefit, the cushioning factor also makes it adept at noise reduction, which is perfect for absorbing the sound in entertainment rooms, play areas, etc.

Endless Styles Available

Think you can’t have all these perks with a killer sense of style? Think again! Not only is cork incredibly functional, but it also comes in a wide variety of tiles, planks, colours, and sizes.
