There are many good reasons as to why so many homeowners are turning more and more to cork flooring for their next project. The beauty of cork flooring is that there is so much diversity in color and design choices available while being one of the most environmentally friendly flooring materials available today. The Oporto Plank Collection from Design Materials, Inc. is an outstanding example of the wide design collection available with cork flooring. From terracotta tones to unusual patterns, homeowners are sure to find something they fancy with Oporto Plank.
Oporto Plank Design Options
Oporto Plank cork flooring is beautiful all on its own, but can be combined with other collections for that extra special element. The Urban Expressions Collection from Wicanders, for example, offers some wonderful patterns that would complement the patterns available with Oporto Plank. For a complementary color, homeowners could turn to the Qu-Cork Collection which offers some interesting coloring with an almost marbling type effect. IpoCork features a nice selection of neutrals, any of which will go nicely with a selection from Oporto Plank.
Oporto Plank Flooring and the Environment:
- Oporto Plank cork flooring is made from 100% cork, manufactured from the bark of the cork oak tree.
- Cork trees fully regenerate their bark every 9 years and harvesting the bark from the lower two thirds of the tree does not harm the tree in the least.
- The manufacture of Oporto Plank cork flooring does not require the use of heavy or toxic chemicals.
For those who want just a touch of pattern but do not want to commit their entire floor to one, there is the option of installing an inlay design using an interesting choice from Wicanders’ Luminous Poetry Collection while keeping the bulk of the floor a tame neutral from Oporto Plank. Combining choices from within the Oporto Plank collection itself will also result in a beautiful, one of a kind floor. Cork flooring design options are limitless.
Oporto Plank Safety
Oporto Plank cork flooring has some wonderful natural characteristics that make it a great choice for safety. Cork is naturally pest repellant and fire resistant, and even if it does burn it does not give off toxic gasses. Cork’s air pockets are great for absorbing sound, but also give it shock absorbing qualities that make it almost cushion-like to walk on while maintaining a solid surface. Cork is also slip-resistant so it is an excellent choice for children’s rooms or kitchens, as long as it is sealed against moisture in the kitchen.
Oporto Plank Flooring Convenience
Oporto Plank cork flooring is surprisingly simple to install. It features a tongue and groove type of click system that requires no adhesive, so any do-it-yourself homeowner should be able to achieve a beautifully installed floor. Cork flooring is also very easy to maintain, requiring only simple sweeping or vacuuming and an occasional damp mopping. Because cork flooring comes in panels or tiles, the floor is very easy to repair should a portion become damaged as only the damaged area can be replaced rather than the entire floor.
