Consider the case of the man who lived on the outer banks of North Carolina and needed nearly complete silence in his house. To get this option, he used cork board flooring throughout his house. Cork flooring can be found in tile form and large panel form. It is very simple to install. Such flooring looks a lot like hardwood floors, with a fascinating grain design. On the surface, it feels rigid and hard, however, it is naturally flexible, warm, durable, and comfortable to walk on. You can find it in the natural shades or in finishes that are dyed. It is a great idea for bathrooms and kitchens.
