I am interested in purchasing an espresso or chocolate colored cork for a 1,200sf greatroom. The room faces north and gets no direct sunlight however the ceiling peaks at 17' and has a north facing large bank of windows bringing in lots of natural light but no direct light.  Will the cork be subject to much fading in indirect sunlight?

Thank you for your advice!

RE: Cork & Fading
the main concern wth cork and fading is from direct sunlight.    Natural sunlght is okay as long as you don't have intense sunlght on the floors.  You could also choose to put uv protection on your windows.

I agree with ichiban.  With no direct sunlight, you should be fine.
