6 Ways to Spruce Up Your Home Using Cork

Cork is a stylish material that’s both renewable and recyclable, making it really good for eco-friendly interior decoration arrangements that lean more towards a neutral or rustic approach without overpowering the space too much.

Here’s how you can use a cork board to add more spice to your home:

Cover your walls

A bold paint color can bring vitality into your space, but cork can be a great option when you’re looking for a budget way to bring a rustic feel to your interior decoration.

And not only do cork walls work in any space, but they also double as a hanger for all kinds of art, notes, or even pictures from your treasured memories and events you want everyone to see.

Cover your floor

Cork also makes for a great flooring, and while it does have its own pros and cons, it’s a great choice for high-traffic areas since it’s easy to refinish for cheap.

It also has other amazing properties as well: it’s great for soundproofing, which is great if you’re worried about making too much noise when you’re around. It’s also highly mold-resistant, perhaps the best thing that allergy-prone people can hope for.

Make a headboard

With its sound-proofing properties, you’ll be surprised to find out that you can add a tiny bit of Zen to your bedtime by installing a cork headboard to your bed – and wonder why you haven’t thought of that idea yet.

Make a bathroom mat

Wine-lovers rejoice – you finally have a reason to indulge! There are all kinds of tutorials you can find online on how you can re-use wine corks in order to DIY this bath mat.

If you don’t have enough wine corks, you can also use all kinds of cork accessories and re-make them into different kinds of decor.

Make decorations

There’s no end to the types of home decor you can DIY for your home with cork. If you don’t know where to get started, the simplest way is to just take some used wine corks, a Styrofoam ball, and a glue gun along with brown acrylic paint.

Turn cork stoppers into mini-planters

Want to start growing seedlings while also cutting down on the plastic? If so, all you need to do is hollow out a cork stopper and you have somewhere to place your seedlings in!

You can even stick magnets onto them with a glue gun so you can stick them onto the fridge for easy visibility, and because they’re biodegradable, you can take out the magnet and bury the whole thing in a planting pot and watch as your plant grows.
