A cork phone case? A cork belt? Can you imagine these things? Well, yeah, cork is not used only for wine stoppers! It is also a great material for any cork-related accessories. A cork board or a cork roll are the most common of them. What are some of the other popular ones? Contrary to what you could’ve thought about that, there are actually quite some accessories on the marketplace that were cork-made.

A cork pad

Are you making your guests a tea or a coffee? Put the cup on the cork pad and then serve it to your guests. This trick makes sure that the table doesn’t get too hot or in any way permanently damaged by the hot drink. It happens so due to the great thermal properties of cork that allow it to go undamaged and yet keep the drink heated. A cork flooring behaves similarly, so if you are impressed by these properties, you may consider getting yourself a cork underlay, which will cover not your table but all of your floor.

Why bother gaming on a cheap pad that rolls itself after several weeks of heavy usage if you can just get yourself an equally cheap and good quality cork-made mouse pad? What’s more, it can be ergonomic with some extra adjustments.  Overall it makes a really good gadget for a gamer. Maybe a pro-gamer will require some extra features but it should be good for a casual player who likes to relax over a good strategy or First Person Shooter.

A cork board

You have to say that the cork board is probably the most popular cork accessory ever but it never stops being useful. If you are a kid, you can use it to remind yourself of a homework, if you are a student, it’s a great place to store all the notes and timetables. And if you are already in a work force or a parent, you will still find another use for a cork board. It’s just that cheap, economic and eco-friendly – like everything that was made from cork. And while cork may seem like a fragile material that is easy to damage, in fact it’s actually better than most of the materials. If you put a heavy thing on a cork, it may get a little bit damage but it will always bounce back. That’s why a cork board is one of the best choices for kids mostly, since they always happen to damage things, accidentally or not, and a cork board is not going to get destroyed so easily. If you want to get something else, you may also consider an adhesive roll or a cork roll. They actually can be glued to wall in an asy and simple way, and act like a cork board while also enhancing the cork’s unique thermal and silencing properties.
