Cork Countertops

A material not often thought to be used today, but has been applied throughout the centuries as a common interior material, is cork. Cork can be seen used as flooring in beautiful historic homes such as Viscaya in Miami, Florida and Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pennsylvania. Today Suberra Cork Surfaces (www.suberra.com) has found another use for this sustainable material in the use of kitchen countertops. Cork countertops have their benefits. Because cork comes from the Cork Oak tree, it is naturally resistant to water, heat and bacteria, which makes it extremely durable. Not only is this fabulous material durable, but it is cost effective and sound dampening too.
