Cork is a great option in flooring that is sometimes forgotten. It has a unique look providing comfort and durability. Cork is a natural product, and the material is obtained from the bark of the tree. Many people think cork is a new style of flooring, when actually there are several examples of cork being used hundreds of years ago. The Library of Congress in Washington D.C. has cork flooring which has been in place for over a hundred years and still standing strong today.
