Cork Tile Revisited

Pin it button big

Long before the days when we were part of the AT team, we sent in this question (Good Questions: A Cork Tile Dilemma) for a little help from the experts (aka AT readers). Being completely indecisive and needing badly to move from our tent in the backyard to our uncompleted bedroom, we bought ourselves a bucket of porch paint and slathered the floor with white. We expected this to be a long-term temporary fix, but our temporary time-period has since passed and we've had it. We're still thinking cork tiles are the way we'll go...

We like that cork's sustainable and would add some extra insulation to the room. We've had a hard time finding a home store that actually carries samples. We've seen them in person once, but we feel like we need to check out a few sources before we dole out the cash. Anyone else have any experience with cork floors? Any recommendations? What would you do?
