I think that epoxy sealant is a great option for when you've got cement floor. It is easy to maintain and clean.

We recently purchased a house, in a beachfront area, with cork flooring throughout the living area. My immediate thought was to remove it and polish the concrete underneath. After living on it for 6 weeks, I just love it. We had it repolished and it looks fabulous. It is warm and soft underfoot, doesn't show the dirt and is easy to clean. I am a convert.

I don't have cork now but I have lived in several other properties with it and it is fantastic. Would recommend it highly - also very eco friendly. Only one obvious drawback - its dangerously slippery when wet so can be a problem in kitchens and other wet areas.
