What kind of floor is that? Cork is actually the bark of a tree commonly known as Cork Oak. Predominantly found in Portugal and Spain, Cork Oak is native to the Mediterranean region. The bark splits every 9 to 15 years and can be safely harvested causing no harm to the tree. The bark re-grows and the cycle continues on for years and years. Some cork trees have been known to live 500 years.
Cork flooring is not only warm to walk on and extremely quiet, with natural sound absorbing qualities, it's also naturally hypoallergenic and naturally resistant to mold and mildew.
