Phillips loves cork flooring, but manufactured cork flooring can get pricey. He recommends asking family, friends and people in the community for wine corks to create your own distinctive cork floor. "The word gets out, and pretty soon you have enough for an entire floor," he says. "So you have a wine cork floor, which is vastly more interesting than any floor I've seen, plus, it gets everybody involved."
