Modern Cork Flooring

Exclusively available from Market Timbers, Melbourne

Cork Comfort from Market Timbers is born from nature. It is one of the most complete materials for the creation of safe, comfortable and inspiring environments. The first extraction of cork from the cork Oak tree occurs only twenty-five years after planting, following which it is harvested in 9 year cycles, without ever damaging the tree in any way. This method allows the cork Oak forest to fulfil its role of fixing carbon dioxide, thus actively contributing to reducing global warming. This makes modern cork flooring a good alternative to use in your homes.

Additionally, Cork Comfort is 100 percent FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) accredited.

Benefits of our Modern Cork Flooring

Your home should be a space of internal balance, a place of pleasant re-discovery after a challenging day’s work. Cork’s natural properties make it an excellent sound insulator, attenuating the sounds that disturb moments of relaxation and family sharing. It is a proven fact that hard surfaces worsen feet and back injuries in urban societies. Due to its softness underfoot, a cork floor contributes to better body posture and wear and tear on the back and joints within the body structure. Thus, cork makes a good product to use in modern flooring. Cork, a remarkable thermal insulator, inspires tranquil and comfortable environments, helping energy-costs savings.

Cork Flooring Choices available in our Melbourne Showroom
