What Are Cork Floors?
Cork flooring is made from the bark of the cork oak tree. The natural tree bark material is ground, processed into sheets, and then baked in a kiln. The bark that we know as cork can be stripped every 9 years without causing any damage to the tree whatsoever - a truly sustainable and environmentally friendly product! Cork is also highly recyclable so can be re-ground and used again and again.
Once it is processed cork is made into tiles that can be used as flooring in an office, a domestic room, or a business space. Cork flooring is suitable for all kinds of commercial and residential rooms. It's a great choice for modern homes and businesses.
In fact, cork can also be used in a range of different ways. It can be placed on the walls, joints, ceilings, bulletin boards, inlays in furniture, and even as a kitchen backsplash. Cork will suit pretty much every interior design style. Create your dream home or office today with our 30cm and 60cm classic cork interlocking mats

How to Use Cork Flooring
Where to Put Cork Tiles
You can put your cork tiles wherever you like! We love to use our cork tiles in the baby playroom, however, you can also put them elsewhere in your domestic property.

How to Clean Cork Floor Tiles
You should immediately clean your cork tiles whenever there isstains, dust, dirt, or any other spillages. It’s a good idea to get into the routine of cleaning up any stains or spills as soon as they happen.
Otherwise, your cork playmat could get real dirty, real quick! It actually requires little effort to keep your cork floor playmat clean and dirt free! It will boost the well being of your baby and save your mat for the future.
What You'll Need
- Warm water.
- Clean cloth or sponge.
- Baking soda, vinegar, dish soap, or a natural cleaning wipe.
Step by Step Guide How to Clean Your Baby Playmats
1. Make the Cleaning Solution
Make your warm water solution with detergent or a natural anti-bacterial product. We like to use vinegar or baking soda because it’s natural, safe, and gentle on the skin.
Dip your cloth in the water solution and apply it directly to the affected area.
2. Wipe Away the Stain
Wash the stain away with your cleaning solution. Dip the cloth into the warm soapy water or the vinegar solution.
Coat the stain in the solution and give the surface a good scrub to ensure the stain has completely vanished. Leave the wet surface to dry for an hour or two. Once it has dried, you can continue to use your cork floor tiles.
How to Install Cork Oak Floor Covering
This is how to lay and install your new cork floating floors and playmats. The good news is that you don’t need any glue or sealant to install our playmats.
All our cork tiles are a breeze to fit! They feature interlocking jigsaw-style ‘teeth’ that lock together.
It only takes a little press with your hand and they are good to go! All of our tiles have two straight edge pieces attached to them so you can finish off the edging of the area with a tidy straight edge.
This makes your installation so easy. Simply measure the site and purchase the desired amount of tiles from Play Mats Direct. Unbox your tiles and place them in your room. Connect their interlocks together on the floor and add some sealer if required. Once this has dried you are good to go!
Why Use Cork Floor Tiles With Your Baby
Tummy time is one of the most important ways babies develop their fine motor skills. It helps their neck and shoulder muscles to grow stronger so they can start to crawl and walk!
Tummy time can get boring for babies if they’re not entertained. An activity gym or a playmat will give them things to look at and touch while fine tuning their motor skills! Our Cork play mats offer enough protection from bumps and knocks whilst being firm enough to support them.
Activity mats give your baby the confidence to explore new things. Babies are prompted to touch new objects, play with new sounds, move in different ways, and explore their environment. All of these things make your baby more curious and resilient.
Play mats and gyms are designed by experts to encourage freedom of movement and experimentation. This freedom helps them make their own choices and gives them the courage to explore more of the world. They can do all of this on a soft, safe, organic surface in their room!
Once installed in the rooms in your house, your baby will be entertained for hours! There are so many fun, entertaining activities you can do on our cork playmats.
Your baby can play with their toys, have tummy time, crawl around, the options are unlimited! Our cork tiles are safe for any kind of playtime.
