There is no rainforest clearing or horrible chemicals that will make you sick. It is natural and environmentally friendly. But, its virtues go well beyond that.
Install it how you want it. Cork flooring is available in the form of glued down tiles, planks or floating floors. You won’t have to go with a form of flooring you don’t want, all choices are available.
