What are the advantages of laminate flooring over cork flooring?

I want to know which is better, laminate or cork flooring.

Laminate flooring is much better at handling things being dropped on it. Cork floor is very soft, as is bamboo, and will show pressure marks from chairs, and things dropped on it; laminate is made to resist denting.

Laminate flooring is more durable than cork flooring. If laminate gets damaged, it is easier to replace the damaged piece, rather than the entire floor. Laminate flooring is floating and does not require the use of glue. Laminate floors also have a richer look and should increase the value of your home more than cork.

Well it depends what your looking for. I just think laminate flooring gets dirty a lot faster. Cork flooring in general is not that great. I'd go with a third option. I'd go with marble or granite and those are the best and top of the line in terms of flooring.

Laminate flooring is more durable the cork flooring. Cork flooring is a softer product and will dent eaiser then the laminate flooring. You also have more color options in the laminate flooring, and size options the laminate will mimic hardwood the cork will look like a flat sheet. The advantage to cork is it is a green product.

Cork flooring is more comfortable and absorbs sound better, meaning that it will be quieter. It is also more durable. The only advantage to laminate flooring is that it is substantially cheaper to buy and much easier to install.
