Has anyone used cork flooring?
Cork flooring is very cool looking. I'm not sure about the FLOATING cork floor but I know that the self stick cork tiles(12x12x3/16) are very durable and work well in a bathroom. This would need luan underlayment and would obviously not last as long as ceramic tile. I think it would be a viable alternative to a cheap ugly vinly flooring. My friend is an architect and he has had it in his bathroom and kitchen for 7 years now. Still looks great!
Hello, from my suggestion I think pasting cork floor or cork tile will be the most suitable one for you. Pasting on is made from 100% pure cork, so you don't have to worried about the water, but only one thing you need to be aware is that the pasting cork tile is very strictt on the floor, you need level your groud first and then install. Also, please remeber to use a good water proof glue to stick you cork tile. I am working for a cork production factory in China, so you could take my suggestion as a good advise.

floating floors are free to move, expand, and contract. In a bathroom this movement would be 10x worse than usual due to humidity, heat and water. Cork is especially susceptible to that. You need tile or linouleum,you could even go as far as a tile-like laminate. that would hold up slightly better.
