In the selection of materials for the walls and floors of the bathroom, generally people are accustomed to using ceramic tiles and other materials for waterproofing and cleaning. However, in the current weather, the tiled bathroom always has a hard and cold texture, especially when you see a thin layer of water mist on the brick wall, every time you lose the courage to take a bath...
So when I saw cork flooring, a material with a gentle temperament, my first reaction was whether it was suitable for installation in our bath room?
The answer is surely yes, and it is very suitable!
1. The water absorption of cork flooring is almost zero, and it is not afraid of oil and water.
The weapon against humidity in the bathroom comes from the material of the cork floor itself. Under the microscope, the cork has 40 million air sacs per square centimeter, and each cell contains more than 95% of the air. It is the cell. These spaces determine the water and moisture resistance of the cork. Since most of the cell walls are in a sealed state, their mutual squeezing will also quickly evaporate water, and the cork itself will not change in any way, ensuring the long-lasting use of the cork floor. In addition, the glued cork floor itself has relatively strong waterproof and moisture resistance. If the special surface sealing technology is used after the paving is completed, and cork tiling and bathrooms have excellent waterproof and moisture-proof performance.
2. The cork floor feels soft and elastic, and it is non-slip.
The anti-slip coefficient of cork reaches level 6 (the highest level is 7), which makes it difficult for children and the elderly to fall. Taking a step back, if you accidentally fall, you are not easily injured. If you have stepped on a cork floor, you will know that its foot feels between soft and hard, just like stepping on a foam mat. The elasticity of such a floor can play a buffering role, effectively greatly reducing the impact of the ground on the body, and providing a guarantee for your safe walking in the bathroom. By the way, because one foot can support your body steadily, it greatly improves the pressure on people's heels. Long-term action on the ground can relieve the fatigue of the back nerves.
3. The cork floor is warm in winter and cool in summer, so as to ease the change of indoor temperature, you will always be in a warm environment
On the one hand, judging from the physical characteristics of cork flooring tiles, its thermal conductivity is low, which means that the heat transfer rate is slow, and it is basically kept at a relatively constant temperature throughout the year. It feels that the feet will feel very comfortable, even in the cold winter. The bathroom also dared to walk barefoot boldly. On the other hand, from the perspective of human psychology, wood itself has its own warm temperament, which inexplicably makes people feel safe and eases the mood.
