Hi from Vancouver


I love cork... we put it in our home office space in the basement area over dri-core and it's great to walk on... I am suprised at how well it wears even with our 2 dogs tracking muck and stuff on it...

Hi from Vancouver


We are considering cork... are y'all still liking how it holds up?

And have any of you put it in a bathroom... extra polyurethane coats, maybe, to help with extra moisture? We would love to put it in the entire house... I hear it deadens the sound of heavy feet... and it's warm...

I am just finishing putting the cork down in my Kitchen & Family rm as well as the main entry and hallway.

Its a great product!!! I would rather have the cork than the hardwood we laid in the liv rm.

The product I used recommended NOT using it in the bathroom. We used quikstyles from home depot.
