Before and After: February’s Top Makeovers


Each and every month, we take some time to honor a few homeowners who transformed their homes with our floors! These folks are proud of the work they’ve done, so they submitted before and after photos to our remodeling site, and we picked their pictures as some of the best. But February is a particularly exciting time, because it marks the beginning of Spring Flooring Season! Each of the customer submissions below represents a trend we’re highlighting in spring 2016, so check them out below:

Top Bamboo Makeover:  Honey Strand

Spring Flooring Trend: Distressed

Morning Star Honey Strand- Janette- KY before and after

We just bought a house and before we moved in we removed all the nasty carpet in the living room, stairs, and hallway. We also replaced the laminate in the kitchen and parlor all together with Handscraped Honey Strand Bamboo. I totally love this flooring…We did a total overhaul.” – Janette, KY

Janette’s not the only fan of our distressed look flooring trend! Here’s what Nancy Fire, Design Director of HGTV Home, had to say about this flooring style:

“For a rustic or aged look, distressed and reclaimed wood flooring can be used in casual and contemporary interiors honoring the vintage craftsmanship.”

Top Hardwood Makeover:  Espresso Hevea

Spring Flooring Trend:  Wide Plank

Casa de Colour Espresso Hevea- Heather- OH before and after

Espresso wide plank floors were installed throughout my home to replace carpet and bamboo. The rich cool-brown color looks lovely, and the house seems even brighter than before because the dark color reflects so much light.” – Heather, OH

Top Laminate Makeover:  Delaware Bay Driftwood

Spring Flooring Trend:  Gray

Dream Home NVP Delaware Bay Driftwood- Benjamin- GA before and after

Replaced cream carpet with Delaware Bay Driftwood in the living room, kitchen, dining room and hallway and Bellawood premium underlayment.” – Benjamin, GA

Benjamin’s total transformation is just one of many gray-look upgrades homeowners nationwide are choosing for their own homes. No one knows that better than Tarek and Christina El Moussa, Real Estate Experts and TV Personalities. Here’s what they told us:

“Currently we like rustic hardwood flooring. We are doing a lot of gray wood flooring with a lot of texture and buyers are loving it.”
