Planning a new kitchen:- second question:- flooring

Has anyone put cork flooring down?

I rather fancy this for it's softness underfoot and insulating properties.

We have it in our back kitchen and shower room and corridor, now 10y old. Just as you say. Happy to do the same again. Buy a few spare. Enormous range of prices.

We had it in the bathroom at the old house. Very hard wearing especially with a few coats of dulux diamond glaze floor varnish.

Will the room have chairs in it? Just wondering about pressure points?

Regards

Yes, freestanding table, chairs and a bench. They do have big feet.

Good point from Ian. Our areas which have cork flooring don't have tables and chairs. There was an old 'frig-freezer and the tiles it was on are definitely more impressed than Shania Twain.

Those chair feet will sink into cork.

Thanks Ian.  I may have to revisit my thoughts, it is a fairly heavy table but has broad feet.  I have sent a message to the Cork Flooring company, so hope to hear back from them.

I didn't go for cork but for these: https://www.luvanto.com/shop/grey-sparkle/

Meanwhile it's going together quite nicely.

Ian, cupboards are 600mm but with two doors 300mm each. That way an open cupboard door hardly projects beyond the base units so is less hazardous. Also middle one contains the extract.
