Ergonomic Kitchen Flooring

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Alright. Now we’ve got Laurie on the line who needs some help with a kitchen-flooring project. How can we help you?

    LAURIE: I am needing to put a new kitchen floor in but I need something that’s going to be easy on my joints.

    LESLIE: One of the floors that I like to recommend for kitchens that are soft, forgiving and beautiful is cork. And surprisingly enough, it’s very durable. If sealed properly, it’s great for a kitchen environment. And it’s soft because of the nature of the cork itself, so it does tend to be a little bit easier on your legs.

    LAURIE: Awesome.

    TOM: And cork also lasts forever. You know, there’s a very famous house that has cork floors. It’s the Fallingwater House that was built by Frank Lloyd Wright back in the late 30s, early 40s. I had a chance to visit it this summer and I was really pleasantly surprised to see that he originally installed cork floors into the bathroom and they still were in good shape.

    LAURIE: Wow.

    TOM: It’s a very durable and very eco-friendly product, as well.

    LESLIE: And it can be very, very beautiful.

    LAURIE: OK. That sounds like something that I will be looking into.

    TOM: Alright. Good luck with that project. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
