After: Stylish Cork(2 of 2)

Carter came up with a new look using a soft cork floor, a roomy modern shower and plenty of storage cabinets. Cork flooring is a sustainable product harvested from just the bark of cork trees, leaving the tree itself undamaged. About one-third of the trunk is stripped every nine years, and the tree then regenerates new bark. It is a great alternative to carpet and is much softer than standard hardwood flooring. It's also easy to install with tongue-and-grove locking, just like simple laminate flooring.
