Most often cork is identified with the stopper for a wine bottle but this incredible material has so much more to offer. Cork is comprised of a waxy substance called suberin which is a bit like a super material.
A few benefits include:
- Comfort & Softness: Air becomes trapped in the cork providing a natural shock absorption. In the instance of flooring, cork can relieve stress on the feet and joints.
- Noise Reduction: The same science that provides the softness and comfort also reduces noise and vibration. Utilizing cork as a wall covering will absorb unnecessary noise.
- Healthy & Safe: Cork has natural properties that are anti-allergenic and resistant to insects. Suberin repels insects, mites and mold and protects cork from rotting when it is exposed to water for a long time.
Needless the say the benefits are impressive but the best part is the style. Take a look at a few examples of how cork can be used through the home.
