Cork It

As I mentioned before, we've decided on cork flooring for our sunroom.  I have to give Jeff credit for this, and admit that it took me a while to get totally on board.  All I could picture was this...

Not my style!  But I've found that you can actually get the flooring in a wide variety of shades & colors and lay it in a variety of patterns.  Here are a few of my inspirations...

I still can't believe that some of those are actually cork!  Plus the flooring has tons of benefits... Number one being that it is eco-friendly!  Not to mention that it is an ideal choice for kitchens and bathrooms, due to the water-resistant nature... and it's a great insulator (making it warmer and softer) for on top of our current cement floor in the sunroom.

I may just lobby to replace our manufactured hardwood flooring in the kitchen with this too... What do you think?  Would you try out cork flooring?
