The ‘perfect way to connect with nature’

THE TRENDCollection by Granorte makes cork accessible to more homes and NATURTrend is the perfect way to connect with the unique natural aesthetic of this sustainable and renewable material, says the company.

‘In the TRENDCollection, Granorte has used its cork know-how to make a range of products that bring the natural material’s practical benefits in an affordable, easy-to-fit, easy to look after and long-lasting floor. And in NATURTrend, homes can also enjoy the positive influence of cork’s organic aesthetic.’

The company continues: ‘The floor features a natural cork decorative veneer in a range of 15 beautiful looks. Sitting beneath the durable and easy to clean WEARTOP super matt finish, the veneer brings an unmistakably natural effect that’s also unique and perfect for setting an ultra-modern look.’

Paulo Rocha, Granorte, says; ‘There’s never been so much focus on the idea of wellbeing and how natural materials can have a positive influence on our state-of-mind. Just look at the growth in popularity of house plants, picture windows and outdoor living spaces and it’s clear to see that homeowners are keen to connect with nature. However, not everyone wants a traditional looking wood floor, or a plastic interpretation of one.

‘For those homes that are looking for a very special take on the organic look, there are few materials that can match cork. Its calming and restful, yet unique enough to make a statement. What’s more, it’s a sustainable option as a renewable, natural resource that’s recycled.’

The company concludes: ‘NATURTrend’s HDF core and Uniclic joint make for a floor that’s also fast to install and it comes with JointShield edge sealing for improved resistance to spills. Beneath lies a cork underlay that helps with thermal and acoustic performance and that features Microban antibacterial and anti-mould protection. In every aspect, NATURTrend provides a floor that’s a great solution for today’s busy family homes.’
