RemodelWest has been designing and remodeling homes since 1992. Just recently we have noticed a trend in using cork material as a flooring solution. We thought we would take the opportunity to share a few quick facts about Cork.
Cork is a 100% natural flooring options. The bark of cork oak trees is harvested with zero negative impact on the environment and grows back naturally in 9-12 years.
Have allergies? No problem! Natural substances found in cork resist the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria.
Cork flooring is one of the best choices when thinking about the acoustics in the room. It has the best natural sound insulation and actually absorbs sound reducing noise.
Cork is naturally fire resistant.

Remodel West completed this Los Altos home remodel in 2012. This project consisted of a full remodel of the kitchen, laundry room and bathroom with an addition to the living room and an indoor/outdoor living area.
The kitchen was designed to serve the needs of a busy family with the expectation of some entertaining in their future. The overall design inolves two different cabinet finishes provided by Crystal Cabinets. The perimeter of the kitchen is a slab door style with a custom finish, while the outside of the island, floating shelves and ceiling design is a slab door style with a standard darker finish. The cabinetry facing the living room matches the entertainment center designed for the family …
Remodel West uses various tools to display finished projets through the internet. Perhaps one of the more facisnating libraries belongs to our Flickr site. This site provides the opportunity to not only see the finished project photos but also to see what the project looked like before and as our construction team was in progress.
Here is an example from one of our bathroom remodel projects:See more photos on Flickr!
The Houzz website has been an amazing resource for our clients to explore
and communicate their needs and wants
during the remodeling process.
Just recently, RemodelWest was featured in an article on the www.Houzz.com website.

RemodelWest completed this Los Gatos project in April. Homeowners’ goals were to add on to the back of the house to make more room for a master suite, and completely remodel the master and hall bathrooms.
The Hall Bathroom was designed with a cool, “beachy” feel in mind. A white field tile with a light turquoise, iridescent decorative tile was used in the shower/tub area. Wainscot paneling and a homeowner selected paint color was used on the walls. This room was considered “the kids bath” for this family of four. Matching pedestal sinks and vanity cabinets were installed along with a towel rack that doubled as a towel warmer.
When designing your dream home, it can seem overwhelming to create a picture in your mind of all the possibilities and what they will look like.
RemodelWest uses several tools to help homeowners get a grasp on the possibilities that best fit their needs and wants. In particular, www.houzz.com, has been a valuable resource for both homeowners and designers to communicate their wishes and expectations for the outcome of their remodel project.
Just last month, RemodelWest’s work was hand picked by the writers of Houzz for a featured Ideabook.
