We have both cork and concrete floors in our home. Love the concrete but HATE the cork! The cork was installed by the previous homeowners and I sooo can't wait to replace it with something else one day. Yes the cork is warmer for feet in the cold and I have actually had glass dishware drop on it in the kitchen and it did not break but slightly bounced. But....it is totally faded anywhere that sunlight directly streams in and the biggest issue is that it's so soft that very simple things gouge it, scratch it and dig in to it....even things such as walking. Not to mention things such as the previous owners dog who apparently ran through the house with it's claws digging in to the cork and thus left a very clear pattern of his run. Also, anything that you slide or scoot across the floor can dig at the cork. Basically, the floors are only a couple years old and they look awful and there is no way to "repair" them once they've been all dinged up like this. They are trendy and hip and cool, but totally not practical and will end up being a waste of money.
