Cork planks snap together fairly easily for a floating installation. Tiles, which can be used to create patterns, are more difficult to install, as they must be glued. Cork flooring is a natural thermal insulator. Because it doesn't conduct heat and cold, it helps maintain temperature in a room.
A hot trend for cutting-edge kitchens, bamboo floors blend style and durability. Though it's technically a grass, bamboo is actually harder than many types of wood. Bamboo comes in tiles or planks in a variety of sizes, colors, patterns, and textures.
The hardness that makes tile so desirable as a kitchen floor surface can also be a drawback. Serious cooks will want to wear comfortable shoes or put down floor mats or area rugs, because standing on tile for long periods of time can be tough on legs and backs. Its surface is cold to the touch of bare feet. And dropped dishes, mugs, and glasses can break on impact.
