Wow, where has the year gone? It’s already August! In honor of a brand new month, we’re sharing our favorite home transformations of the week. Whether you’re installing hardwood, bamboo, laminate, or vinyl, we absolutely love it when you send us your renovations. So without further ado, here are five submissions that blew us away. Want to see more? Don’t forget to visit our Before & After site!
Dottie Hayes – Hickory, NC
When it came to flooring, Dottie needed something that was going to withstand the ultimate test: large dogs. She decided to go with our Virginia Mill Works Tobacco Road Acacia hardwood and installed it in her living room, hallway, and kitchen. Before, the old flooring just seemed to blend in with the walls and didn’t provide enough contrast. Now, the new flooring – which is reminiscent of the charming, handcrafted floors found in Colonial American homes – adds character and gives off a natural worn appearance. Its unique graining is a work of art. “Replacing the existing laminate flooring made a huge difference,” Dottie wrote. We couldn’t agree more, Dottie; great job!
Ashley Petrunic – Prattville, AL
Sometimes letting go is the best thing you can do. So that’s exactly what Ashley did with the white tile and grout in her kitchen. No matter how hard she tried to clean it, the chalky floor never looked good. It also didn’t really mesh well with her classic, dark-wood cabinets and granite countertops. Luckily, our Morning Star Distressed Click Honey Strand Bamboo flooring came in and saved the day. Not only does the flooring complement her new cabinets but the open graining and light brown coloring add a splash of sophistication that mixes well with the kitchen’s new rustic charm. We love what you’ve done with the place, Ashley; thanks for sharing your story!
Darla Barker – New Philadelphia, OH
Darla installed our Dream Home Brazilian Cherry laminate, and she couldn’t be happier with the decision! The new flooring adds something special to the family room. With its dark color variation and beautiful graining, the surface gives off warmth and comfortability. “I love it, and it’s durable enough for my two Great Danes,” Darla wrote. “It’s so easy to clean too!” Terrific job, Darla; we’re impressed!
Sarah Stancik – Port Lavaca, TX
All we can say is wow! When Sarah replaced her old carpet with our Dream Home Delaware Bay Driftwood laminate, her home was completely transformed. With its weathered driftwood look, the new flooring adds casual charm to her living room, sitting room, and dining room. It also beautifully contrasts with her dark furniture and brightens up the space. “We live on the coast, and the color is perfect,” Sarah wrote. “We couldn’t be happier!” We’re so happy to hear that the floor exceeded your expectations, Sarah; keep it up!
Ron Zito – Wilson, NY
If you’re looking for a more modern style, follow Ron’s lead. He installed our Bellawood Golden Bamboo flooring in his kitchen and front hall. Now, his home exudes absolute luxury. The new flooring features elegant caramel hues and alluring golden tans. The tone is also extremely inviting. Anyone who visits Ron’s home is going to be taken back by the gorgeous bamboo. We absolutely love what you’ve done with the place, Ron; bravo!
