I had a box and a half of cork click & lock planks left over from our kitchen remodel so I covered the main floor with it.
I like the way it looks and feels - plus the cork is easy to keep clean in the kitchen...we'll see how it works out in the Scamp
I am intrigued with your 'cork over carpet' solution! It looks great and sounds pretty easy.
When putting down the cork floor over the carpet, did you have any issues with the edges, under the cabinets? Does the floor 'flex' because of the carpet underneath or move around in any way? Did you have to secure it in any way? What brand of cork floor did you use?
Sorry for all the questions, but it almost seems too easy to be true!
