Welcome to another new week! It’s time for us to share our favorite room makeovers that fans from across the country sent to us. From hardwood to laminate, the floors in these Before & After submissions give these rooms a fresh new look and function. We had a hard time narrowing the field to just five photos, but we selected these because we feel they really demonstrate the big difference new floors make. Head over to our site to see even more transformations – but first, keep reading to feast your eyes on these five fabulous spaces.
Brenda Luis – Pine Bush, NY
Brenda’s bedroom had a lot going for it – but the beige carpet had to go. The replacement? Our Bull Barn Oak laminate. Stylish, practical, and durable enough for Brenda’s canine pals, the floor gives the room a whole new look. The distressed appearance lends rustic charm, which blends perfectly with the natural color palette and wooden bed. “We love the look of this flooring so much that we are doing the whole house with it!” Brenda wrote. “Love it!” So do we, Brenda; thanks for sharing your makeover!
Denese Renner – Windsor, CO
This spacious family room is really something special, but it needed the right floors. Denese installed our Tobacco Road Acacia solid hardwood, and the change was instant! The deep, rich browns and distressed surface of the hardwood echo the wood beams on the ceiling for unparalleled cohesiveness. The new look is timeworn and charming – and the space is ideal for spending time with family and friends. “This was a great floor,” Denese wrote. “Love the colors, and all the pieces were unique!” The room looks terrific, Denese; we’re so impressed!
Jane Murray – Seattle, WA
Dated resilient floors, old carpet, and a battered transition strip – not exactly Jane’s ideal style. Installing our Schön Engineered Acacia hardwood in the family room drastically upped the style quotient. The hardwood’s striking color variation and vivid graining lends pizzazz and complements the room’s eclectic style. “It looks beautiful,” Jane wrote. “It’s like we moved into a new house.” Nice job, Jane; the room looks fabulous!
Hank Buonforte – Provo, UT
Hank’s den was already a cozy space with a fun vibe – but replacing the carpet with our Dream Home Heard County Hickory High-Gloss laminate propelled it to “wow” status. The glossy surface, with interwoven shades of blonde and brown, conveys the bold appearance of natural hickory – right down to the graining and knots. The nature-inspired floor is right at home with the stone fireplace and wooden railings, producing a room that’s rustic yet shines with one-of-a-kind style. What a fantastic makeover, Hank; nicely done!
Brandi Shipman – Nocona, TX
Brandi’s living room got an injection of elegance when she swapped red carpet for our Golden Teak Resilient vinyl. It’s soft underfoot, and the surface features the rich texture and distressed appearance of rustic hardwood. The red accents and brick fireplace pull out hints of red in the floor for a unified appearance. The result? Understated elegance at its best. “Awesome product!” Brandi wrote. “Even the contractor who laid the floor was impressed with the quality.” We’re glad to hear that, Brandi; thanks so much for sharing your story!
