Now that the nation is finally embracing sustainable living spaces, many homeowners are researching more ways they can make their new home or new renovation more sustainable. A great place to start is with the floors. Cork is an excellent material for your new sustainable home for 5 great reasons.

1. Cork floors are made from recycled cork (pre-consumer) that is left over from the production of cork stoppers.

2. Because cork floors have air pockets, they make a very efficient non-conductor of heat, meaning they reduce heat loss in rooms and reflect heat back through the feet, retaining body heat.

3. By nature, cork is hypo-allergenic and anti-static.

4. Cork is resistant to mold and bacteria growth which make it a great choice for families that suffer from allergies and asthma.

5. Cork flooring absorbs impact so noise of dropped items and walking feet are contained in the room.

We didn’t always think this way. A decade or more ago it wouldn’t have occurred to us. But sourcing materials based on point of origin has become an important design decision. The farther away the source of materials, the more energy intensive the shipping process. And if we are indeed to build sustainably, we need to take all environmental impacts into consideration.

A great deal of reclaimed and recycled materials were also used in the home, shipped in from neighboring states and restored on site. In the end, although we might have spent a bit more time shopping materials because we were concerned about more than just appearance, we achieved results that were a win for the client and for the environment as well.

Would you be willing to compromise slightly for the sake of the environment?
