Home Is Where The Heart Is
If the home is where the heart is, then the kitchen is the life source of the home. Many times, our family is gathered in our kitchen more than any other room in the house. The enjoyment of cooking together and gathering around the table to enjoy the fruits of our labor, the memories made by baking cookies with the kids or making a special Father’s Day breakfast, all begin in the kitchen. And with all the traffic our kitchen sees on a daily basis, we needed flooring that could not only withstand the wear and tear of so many feet, big and small, but we needed something that would be easy to clean and maintain. We didn’t want to eliminate our quality time in the kitchen with something as boring and dirty as cleaning.
Cork flooring in the kitchen is ideal! It can withstand the heavy foot traffic and adds comfort to those feet with its springy cellular nature. Cork’s ability to be mold and germ resistant also lends itself perfectly to the kitchen atmosphere. And we love the fact that cleaning our kitchen floors is easy breezy lemon squeezy with just an occasional damp mopping and a regular sweeping to keep the dust bunnies and dirty sneakers from dirtying up our fun times in this room.
Did you know that the floor isn’t the only place to use cork in your cork home decor? It can also be used as insets on cabinet faces and on countertops as well. We even took our cork wall tiles and cut them to size to line our cabinet interiors! It cushions the glasses and dishware and just adds a little more oomph when you open the cabinets to retrieve something and see the keen lining you so easily installed yourself.
