Your home should be where you feel most comfortable and safe. After a long day at work, taking care of the children, and dealing with the everyday challenges life throws your way, you should at least be able to come home and breathe a sigh of relief. And how your home is styled and set up can be just as important as what’s in it when it comes to being able to relax. This week, we’re featuring flooring that speaks home sweet home. Whether your dream home includes laminate, hardwood, vinyl, or engineered flooring, as long as it makes you feel good at the end of the day, that’s all that matters. Want to be showcased in next week’s blog? Visit our Before & After site and submit your pictures! While we can’t post them all, we promise we look at each and every transformation. Have a great week and happy reading!
Gregory Roy – Flat Rock, MI
After Gregory removed the carpet from his living room and replaced it with 600-square-feet of our Dream Home Butterscotch Oak laminate flooring, the space took on an entirely new look. Our Dream Home laminate offers a regal alternative to hardwood flooring, yet each plank features the texture and detail commonly seen on real wood. However, where hardwood flooring may require regular upkeep and maintenance, our laminate is designed to stand the wear and tear of daily living – and that includes pets! Its V-groove structure makes it a snap to install, and if anything should happen to the flooring, our Butterscotch Oak is covered by a 50-year warranty. This flooring features a beautiful butterscotch coloring that showcases natural-looking swirls and burls. “Thanks to Darrel Meece and Charlie Noles for the good deal and their excellent service,” Gregory wrote. “Darrel personally went to another store to get my transition pieces, so I could finish the project.”
We’re so happy to hear that, Gregory; thanks for sharing!
Jerry Combs – Red Lion, PA
Jerry tore up the old laminate in a customer’s kitchen and installed our Dream Home Vineyard Reserve laminate flooring, and Jerry couldn’t have said it any better: Wow, what a difference! Our Vineyard Reserve flooring takes its inspiration from beautiful oak wine barrels. With dark, contrasting edges, the look is reminiscent of a technique known as the French Bleed that is intended to capture the timeworn charm of an aged wood floor. This top-quality floor is dominated by cinnamon red hues and beautifully blends with the deep brown distressing with a high-gloss finish. It’s an excellent choice for anyone looking for the warmth of wood but the durability of laminate. The best part is that unlike wood – which can sometimes be difficult to install and may take quite a bit of time to get right – our laminate comes with our easy-click technology, meaning all you have to do is click each plank into place. Just make sure to properly mix the boards for a more natural look. No glue or nails required!
We love what you’ve done with the place, Jerry; awesome work!
Dorris Simpson – Simpsonville, SC
Most homeowners know when it’s time to say goodbye to their flooring. In Dorris’ case, she replaced the laminate flooring and carpeting in her bedroom with our CoreLuxe Acacia Engineered Vinyl Plank flooring, accomplishing a well-deserved transformation. Our EVP flooring combines the durability, comfort, and waterproof features of luxury vinyl plank with an innovative rigid core that clicks together with ease, making it a great choice for DIYers. CoreLuxe stands up to heavy traffic, busy families, and even pets. And its no-fuss maintenance is as attractive as its authentic hardwood look. It’s an ideal flooring choice for any room – even bathrooms, kitchens, and basements. As with all of our floorings, our Acacia EVP is protected under a 50-year warranty, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to Lumber Liquidators with questions or concerns.
The result looks gorgeous, Dorris; bravo!
Ken Kinzie – Davenport, FL
Sometimes, website pictures don’t do a flooring justice. For Ken, while it was difficult to pick a flooring that truly encompassed his style from Lumber Liquidators’ online pictures, he took a leap of faith and chose to install our Dream Home Buffalo Springs Chestnut laminate flooring. And guess what? It turned out to be everything he and his family was looking for and more! Dream Home offers a premium laminate that features a textured and distressed appearance for a beautiful rustic feel. Plus, the V-groove design, high-gloss finish, and pre-glued attached underlayment make our Buffalo Springs Chestnut flooring exceptionally durable and easy to install. These gorgeous floors are engineered to resist scratches and stains while staying beautiful for years to come. You can’t get much better than that! “It turned out to be a very authentic real wood look that matched our decor,” Ken wrote. “Exactly what we wanted!”
That’s awesome news, Ken; now it’s time to celebrate!
Patti Duquaine – Pulaski, WI
When Patti replaced the white carpet in her living room with our Builder’s Pride Classic Gunstock Oak Prefinished Solid flooring, she changed not only the look of the space but the utility of it as well. Our Classic Gunstock Oak is not only easy to install but exceptionally beautiful. Its rich, dark brown hues add natural warmth and create the illusion of more room. It also complements the dark furniture and lighter-colored walls. Whereas the white carpet probably demanded a lot of upkeep, especially since it easily showed dirt, our flooring hides all of life’s little imperfections and gives a modern twist to a classic-style room. Live comfortably in your home and increase its value with the rich shades of the Builder’s Pride Collection – starting with our Classic Gunstock Oak. This floor will continue to amaze you for years to come.
You have a lovely home, Patti; great job!
