Market Timbers Increases Stock Of Cork Flooring Options To Meet Demand
Cork oak trees are one of the more sustainable sources of natural flooring and as the world is waking up and becoming more conscious of the environmental crisis, more customers are switching to natural, sustainable options. Market Timbers is there to meet demand with a large inventory of cork flooring choices.

Market Timbers, recognising the growing preference to natural, sustainable design all over Australia, is shifting its focus on increasing its available stock of cork flooring.

When the company launched the Cork Wise prefinished plank flooring, it won the innovation prize at BAU and was finalist for Sustainable Product of the Year. The product has since then seen a marked increase in popularity.

“Going on current trends, we have ensured we have a substantial amount of stock in our cork flooring range, ensuring we can supply a multitude of different projects quickly, such as residential and commercial projects. This, in addition to our extensive network of sawmills we work closely with, ensure we can help clients with any timber/cork option they may be interested in,” says Rez Razak, Market Timber’s Architectural Rep.

Cork flooring Melbourne homeowners use has been a popular choice for wood flooring in the last year for at least two reasons. First is that it is a beautiful, warm natural flooring that fits well with the growing popularity of open floor plan architecture. Another is that the cork oak tree doesn’t have to be cut down in order to make the product. To make it, the oak bark only has to be stripped every 7 years, which doesn’t harm the tree in the process. In fact, the oak tree will absorb more CO2 after the bark is stripped and therefore help fight carbon emissions.

According to Rez Razak, there are huge cork oak forests in Portugal, where Market Timber’s cork is sustainably sourced from, that have stood for hundreds of years and are expected to stay standing for hundreds more.

Other than the rising trend among homeowners wanting a minimalistic, natural and warm aesthetic, the world is becoming increasingly aware of the environmental dangers posed by the logging industry. Many people are starting to look for more sustainable wood-based products, which Market Timbers is an advocate of. The company has always made it a point to sell only products that are harvested through sustainable means.
