RE: homogenous/ veneer?
Homogenous is solid cork all the way through while veneered is just a top layer of cork. Here is a link to more info. www.findanyfloor.com/cork/CorkFloo...

RE: homogenous/ veneer?
Homogenous cork is solid cork all the way though topped by a UV acrylic or water based finish. Veneer consists of 5 layers – cork underlayment, stabilizing core made of MDF or HDF, followed by a cork core, then a cork veneer (which gives it is final appearance). This is all topped with the finish layer.

Homogenous can be refinished while veneered cannot.
