Happy Monday, readers! Another week means another round of submissions to our Before & After site, and as we always do, we’ve selected five of our favorites to spotlight. Read on to find out how some of our many satisfied customers have finished their remodeling projects and to see how installing a new floor can completely transform the look and feel of a room!
Mike Moreno – Arleta, CA
After living in the same house for 10 years, Mike decided to spice things up with several renovation projects. His first project consisted of tearing out the green (“yes, green”) carpet in his bedroom and replacing it with our Scarlet Night Bamboo. The bamboo’s deep and rich hues evoke an atmosphere of warmth and sophistication, and the fresh coat of paint on the walls doesn’t hurt either. “We couldn’t be happier with our choice of bamboo flooring,” he wrote. Congratulations on a job well done, Mike!
Minorka Dilone – Freeport, NY
In both her before and after pictures, Minorka’s living room flaunts a hardwood floor. The difference between the two, however, is our Bellawood Brazilian Cherry in the second photo, which Minorka installed to “give the house more style.” We think the room’s style increased tenfold: With the Brazilian Cherry, the planks are wider, richer, and have less of a contrasting outline, rendering the floor smoother and more cohesive. “Love it!” she wrote. So do we, Minorka!
Kent Sager – Adairsville, GA
While Kent revamped his whole “salon room,” from the floor to the ceiling, he says it was our Acacia Engineered hardwood that really transformed the space. “The floor is complimented anytime someone is here,” he wrote. “Very satisfied with product and how this particular floor matches colors and lighting of any type!” We agree, Kent – the gloss of the wood catches both the natural sunlight and the ceiling lights beautifully, and its variation in hues makes it a versatile choice for any wall color. Wonderful job!
Robert Cheney – Pelham, AL
When Robert’s roof was damaged from strong winds, his floor also suffered from exposure to water. But luckily, Robert made the best out of an unfortunate situation and replaced the ruined carpet with our Morning Star Bamboo – an upgrade in every sense of the word. Because he installed it himself, “it was actually cheaper than carpet!” he wrote. “And so much nicer!” Between the two photos, this was a comprehensive transformation with stunning results: The bamboo is smooth and reflective, and it radiates a natural beauty that complements the new walls. We’re impressed, Robert!
Mary – Lakewood, CO
Mary has two dogs, which means her old carpet was both smelly and stained. She decided enough was enough and replaced it with our Pioneer Park Sycamore – and she did it herself! “We are not professionals, just brother and sister,” she wrote. “Total time was about two days with removal. The included click system was easy to install with minimal tools. Everyone loves the new floor! We have already seen [that]this floor will stand up to the dogs.” Looks great, Mary! Fantastic job.
Thanks to everyone who shared their success stories with us last week; we always enjoy seeing the transformations of each home. For more inspiration, be sure to check out our Before & After site!
