When different and unique things complement each other, we all feel balanced and harmonious.
That’s what Wicanders Cork Oak Flooring is all about. If you are a frequent visitor here, you know we can’t blog enough about our floors…because we love the pairing of sustainable design and art, and the benefits of green building working hand-in-hand with modern design.
One of our favorite relationships is between Wicanders Cork Oak Floors and Children. As we all know, kids love to run, jump, and play hard on floors. Our floors are soft and absorb shock, so the little ones are less likely to get hurt doing what they naturally love to do. Kids also are more likely than adults to pick up germs and viruses. Our cork oak floors are naturally anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and hypoallergenic. Kids can be loud. Our floors dramatically reduce impact sound and reflected noise. In fact, our cork oak floors are often used to diminish the echo effect in large corridors and hallways, as well as specialty rooms such as libraries (like the Library of Congress), classrooms, theaters and children’s museums.
Amazement Square Children's Museum & Wicanders Cork Oak Floors
Want to check out some real life examples of harmony in action? Amazement Square, a hands-on children’s museum and interactive learning playground in Lynchburg, VA, chose our Series 1000 Originals Collection in Natural to cover approximately 5,000 square feet of the museum’s high traffic areas. The Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, in Brighton, UK, chose our Series 4000 for their central atrium area where lots of kids play, so they don’t disturb the other little kids trying to get well. This busy pediatrics hospital won an International Health Care Award, in recognition of its innovative design and promotion of health and well being.
Award-Winning Children's Hospital Chose Wicanders Cork Oak Floors
So when you think about it, installing Wicanders Cork Oak Flooring in places where little kids play (and big kids, too!) is a pretty good idea.
Here’s to keeping our little ones safe, healthy, and happy! Cheers!
