Cork floors are durable, yes. However, when moving furniture and big objects, make sure to carry it and not slide it across your cork floor. Cork flooring will bounce back from most marks but special care and a bit of common sense needs to be taken for larger items. The cork has a natural waxiness that repels moisture but excessive exposure to water isn’t good for cork so make sure you mop up any spills immediately. If you really want to use cork flooring in your bathroom, it’s better to consult with a professional who can advise you accordingly.
