Tory Dahlenburg – Smyrna, TN
Tory and her family decided it would be a lot easier – after seeing numerous examples of barn wood and pallet wood on the walls – to use unfinished hardwood flooring to achieve their dream look. They decided to go with our Clover Lea Plantation New England White Pine Natural Unfinished Solid flooring to get the job done, and we think it probably exceeded everyone’s expectations. Pine, as a flooring option with great character, offers rustic knot patterns and gold and amber tones. It will make a country-style home stand out, but it perfectly adapts to modern decor as well. Tory went one step further and beautifully stained the wood with different shades of brown and gray – which gives the space not only a unique look but warmth and natural appeal. “It all went up very easy with very few minor issues,” Tory wrote. “The end result was better than we expected.”
We’re so happy to hear that, Tory; gorgeous transformation!
Rachael Diliberti – Toms River, NJ
Who says you have to fork over wads of cash to achieve a sophisticated home look? We think Rachael would agree. She installed our Dream Home Madison River Elm laminate flooring in the living room, and what a result! Our laminate – which features real wood grain – looks exactly like hardwood but without the maintenance. Dream Home’s line of flooring is designed to fill your home with harmonious style, so no matter what room you put in, it’s going to look great. When we say this floor has it all, we really mean it. It features a moisture-resistant core plus a pre-glued sound-proofing foam underlay, so you can concentrate more on getting things done and less on the click-clack and shuffle of hyper pets and children. And when it comes to design, our laminate showcases beautiful hues of red and brown and characteristics markings that resemble real wood. “Love this floor,” Rachael wrote. “Looks clean and brightens up the entire room!”
We think so, too, Rachael; thanks for sharing!
Wayne Funn – Nuevo, CA
When Wayne replaced approximately 1,300 square feet of flooring (in the master bedroom and retreat, hallway, entryway, dining room, living room, and kitchen), he put his confidence in Lumber Liquidators to provide him with a flooring that could withstand the everyday pressures of life and still look fabulous. He chose our Morning Star Distressed Silver Stone Engineered bamboo flooring and hasn’t looked back since. The best thing about our bamboo is that it’s an environmentally friendly product. Unlike wood, which can take years to harvest, bamboo is a grass that grows far more quickly than trees – which means it’s a renewable resource. When you choose bamboo for your home, you’re reducing your environmental footprint. Not only that but your home will look absolutely gorgeous. Our bamboo features a distressed appearance that feels one with nature and showcases different shades of gray. It’s a neutral-colored floor that will look right at home no matter where installed.
Thanks for choosing us, Wayne; we love the look!
Nadja Frist – Newtown Square, PA
When Nadja updated her kitchen, she also needed new flooring. She chose our Tranquility Rio Rosewood Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring because of its look, easy installation process, and price point. And in one weekend, the work was done! Our LVP flooring is not only embossed to look and feel like real wood, but it’s designed to be waterproof. It’s an optimal choice for bathrooms, kitchens, and mudrooms. It also offers great warmth and texture under your feet and when it comes to installation, it can either peel and stick, glue down, or click together with ease. In Nadja’s kitchen, it beautifully complements the white cabinetry and stainless steel appliances and creates the illusion of more space. Performancewise, the top coat will protect against scratches, scuffs, and stains. If you have a busy household and are worried about everyday wear and tear, you can rest assured our flooring is up for the challenge. “It looks and feels great,” Nadja wrote. “We couldn’t be more pleased with it!”
We might love it more than you do, Nadja; awesome job!
Carolyn Caselli – Vista, CA
We absolutely love to see customers getting creative with our product! Take Carolyn, for example. To cover up the yellow fireplace wall that took up noticeable space in her new home, she used our Dream Home Bull Barn Oak laminate flooring to get the job done. Our laminate features a textured, distressed appearance that lends a beautiful rustic appeal. It’s also the perfect backdrop for Carolyn’ white-brick fireplace because of its neutral coloring. Its V-groove design, high-gloss finish, and pre-glued attached underlayment make this laminate exceptionally durable and easy to install. It’s engineered to resist scratches and stains while staying beautiful for years to come. But if anything should happen, Carolyn can put her worry aside because our floor is backed by a lifetime warranty. “I love it,” Carolyn wrote.
We feel the same way, Carolyn; bravo!
