Cork, The Floor And Walls Of Your Bedroom’s Dreams
Your bedroom. Your oasis. Your paradise…not so much, huh? But what if we could help you achieve that dream to day. How? By introducing you to the amazing abilities of cork. We will give you a little information on how cork flooring and walling products can help you turn your bedroom into a retreat worthy of the world’s best spas. Style. Comfort. Beauty. And a place to relax.
When it comes to bedroom flooring and walling, cork can make all the difference. It has the look and feel of wood, but out performs its hardwood cousins. Cork is derived from the Quercus Suber, or cork oak tree. This species populates areas found mainly in Portugal and Spain, or around the Mediterranean Basin. Cork is very durable as well as very lightweight. The “honey-comb” like cell structure of the bark is made up primarily of millions of chambers filled with compressible air. This is what makes cork so buoyant.
This self same cell structure of cork makes it an excellent insulator. Cork retains its own warmth even in a cold room. On the floor or on the wall, cork will inhibit the transfer of heat or cold. Put it in your bedroom and you will also add the wonderful compliment of soundproofing. With over 40 million natural-cushion cells per cubic centimeter, cork is a natural sound and thermal insulator. A cork surface acts like a carpeted surface but without the coarse texture and accumulation of dust or dander. Because of this capability you receive all the comfort of carpet and can still run around in bare feet on a cork floor. Unlike carpets, cork flooring is hygienic and allergy-free. This type of floor is anti-slippery so you can walk on it without concern.
Aesthetically beautiful, cork flooring and walling will help to create a relaxed atmosphere in your bedroom whether you are going for the rustic look or chic appeal. Due to a waxy substance called Suberin, cork is able to stave off wood rot, mold and mildew. This also gives cork its water resistant ability, so if you have an attached bath, cork can go in there as well. Cork is noncorrosive, is fire resistant and can bear heavy loads.
As you can see, as a natural product, cork’s advantages over its competition are astonishingly diverse. Even its prime source is environmentally sustainable. The tree is not clear-cut but peeled for its product. This means the cork tree does not need to be replanted for as many as three human generations. This ensures that cork springs to the top of the “Renewable Resources” list.
