Recent trends in retirement home design indicate a move towards the use of higher end looking materials to create a modern, hotel inspired aesthetic. CorkCore | LVT is a unique combination of Luxury Vinyl Tile and natural cork. The result is a highly durable, quiet and easy to maintain flooring solution ideally suited to the multi-residential units, and common/social spaces found in retirement communities.
The benefits of using CorkCore | LVT rather than carpet, which is traditionally found in retirement home suites, include thermal insulation, durability, exceptional sound absorption and a reduction of allergens. The revolutionary compression system utilized in this flooring product takes full advantage of the outstanding properties of cork – flexibility, elasticity, and compressibility.
The waterproof boards will not swell when exposed to water contributing to the durability and longevity of this flooring option. Maintenance requirements include the use of a mild detergent, vacuum or floor duster for easy daily/weekly cleaning. Finally, the installation process is quick and easy with no additional finishes or vapour barriers required, making it a perfect choice for renovation projects.
