5 Hallway Cork Floors Design Photos And Ideas

The flooring was a major new addition. While it appears to be concrete, it is actually gray cork sheeting, laid in large tiles. The material is natural, fully recyclable, soft to walk on, cool in summer, warm in winter, and is able to withstand moisture.
The courtyard and pool are adjacent to the entry stair and half a level above the street, so that no excavation was required. This brings the courtyard closer to the upper level living areas, while still allowing the guest suite on the lower level to feel connected to the courtyard.
The yellow fiberglass hydraulic panels add a colorful touch to decidedly minimalist interior color scheme.
The ceiling height in the central hall was raised, and mechanical equipment and ducting were relocated to the roof. The double sliding pocket doors on the left side, which were part of the original design, were replaced with new doors and hardware as well as custom pocket covers.
The open, split-level plan allows for continuous flow from space to space, and uninterrupted views from the inside out. The original radiant heating system remains, and cool gray cork floors provide comfort and warmth.

More than a way to get from point A to point B, modern hallways are important transitional spaces that connect both rooms and people. A well-designed hallway maximizes our experience of moving between activities and stages of the day. The photos below showcase some outstanding examples with various flooring options from hardwood to concrete.
