The cork floors in the Kitchen are by Expanko and I can't remember the pattern. They are 12x12 tiles adhered to the floor (not floating). The wood floors beyond are 100 year old 5/16 oak floors with walnut accent strips in the border.

I like the transition of the cork flooring to the old oak floors in the dining room. Looks just like my 100 year old house in SF.

The pros: It is eco friendly, beautiful to look at, feels comfortable under foot than a hard tile - since it has give, it can be used as a sub flooring or all by itself, its hypo allergenic, therefore good for families.

Cons: Can be expensive, can easily be damaged by heavy objects, high heels, pets, etc... Can be easily damaged by moisture or spills, it also tends to discolor if located in direct sunlight for long periods of the day.

Another pro is its great at absorbing sound. If used in upstairs areas, it will muffle traffic to the downstairs area and vice versa.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Ivon Street Studio added this to Ecofriendly Kitchen: How to Choose Flooring
Cork floors. The warmth and comfort of cork underfoot makes it a great choice for the kitchen, where we often stand for long periods of time. Cork also touts a lot of green cred: It's a rapidly renewable and carefully protected resource. Every nine years producers in Portugal and Spain strip the thin bark of cork trees into long, wide slabs, using care not to damage the tree. Wine corks are stamped out first, and the scraps are then ground and pressed to make flooring and bulletin boards, so that every bit that is harvested is used.Cork is available in both tiles and planks. With both I seek prefinished products with a no-VOC finish. With any prefinished tile or plank product, the vertical edges often aren't prefinished, so it's worth adding a top coat of finish after installation to protect the edges and joints.Cork manufacturers have broadened their palettes to include pale, dark and colored options, as well as a variety of patterns.
