Xiaowei Lu – Ballwin, MO


Xiaowei replaced the original flooring in the living room with our Bellawood Select Brazilian Koa Prefinished Solid hardwood flooring, and she may have done the best thing she can possibly do for her home. Everything Bellawood does is about making a better floor. Brazilian Koa’s distinctive orange coloring and deep brown striking make it one of the most unique and exotic species available on the market today. Its durability is simply outstanding. The result? A not-so-everyday floor that will stand up year after year to life’s demands. Plus, Bellawood’s patented finishing process gives this flooring a best-in-class stain and gloss as well as scuff resistance. This means, it’s two times more scratch-resistant and four times more abrasion-resistant than other brands. The best part? It’s backed by a transferable 100-year warranty. When you choose Bellawood, you choose a lifetime of exceptional beauty and quality for your home.

Thanks for sharing, Xiaowei; we love what you’ve done with the place!

Sharon Thompsonville, MI


Sharon couldn’t have gone with a better choice when she decided on installing our Coreluxe Beachcomber Oak Engineered Vinyl plank flooring in her living room. EVP is a new vinyl platform that combines the durability and water resistance of vinyl with an innovative new substrate plank technology. Its no-fuss maintenance is as attractive as its high-definition design. A urethane top coat provides exceptional scratch resistance, stain resistance, and dent resistance for high-traffic areas, which is very useful for families, light commercial, pets, and active children. And due to its waterproof nature, EVP can be utilized in almost any room. Did we mention it comes with a 30-year warranty, and it’s incredibly easy to install? Finally, its natural wood-like appearance makes it difficult for people to differentiate from real hardwood flooring. Can’t get any better than that. “I am so very pleased and excited with the great results I have with this product,” Sharon wrote. “I could not be happier with the results.”

We are overjoyed by your response, Sharon; perfect choice!

Jacqueline Davis – Longview, TX


There’s a reason so many people choose Bellawood. Jacqueline installed our Bellawood Natural Australian Cypress Prefinished Solid hardwood flooring in her living room, and the space already looks completely different! Australian Cypress – unique and durable – is a stunning wood with a variety of tones, ranging from cream to honey brown. In Jacqueline’s living room, it lends natural warmth and creates a brighter environment. Its intricate grain and exquisite dark knots make it a great choice when you’re looking for a rustic feel. As for hardness and durability, Australian Cypress is renowned. It’s suitable for virtually any high-traffic area, from busy living rooms to bustling boardrooms. You can bet it’s Taber-tested too. Bellawood’s durability results were more than double most comparably priced floors based on its sandpaper-abrasion trials. There’s good, there’s better, and then there’s Bellawood.

Incredible transformation, Jacqueline; we approve!

Adriano Leal – Germantown, MD


While Adriano’s living room was beautiful before, it’s now absolutely stunning with our Dream Home Bronzed Brazilian Acacia laminate flooring. The living room previously featured an assortment of colors, but the new living space is calmer and more sophisticated. The accent wall beautifully complements the light and dark brown hues and intricate grain design. On the inside, this product has an 8mm moisture-resistant core, plus a 2mm pre-glued sound-proofing foam underlay. It even has the feel of real wood grain and comes with a 50-year warranty. Our Bronzed Brazilian Acacia is designed for glue-free laying and simply clicks into place. For a more natural look, all you need to do is mix light and dark panels sufficiently before installing. We’d be surprised if any of Adriano’s friends or family can guess that the new floor isn’t actually hardwood.

We can’t get enough of the space, Adriano; you did a wonderful job.

Robert Heipt – North Oxford, MA


Basements don’t have to be dirty and cold just because they’re basements. Don’t let usable space go to waste. Turn your basement into a room worth occupying. That’s what Robert did when he installed our Dream Home Pewter Oak laminate flooring. Laminate is an easy-to-install and easy-to-maintain floor that replicates the natural color, grain, and texture of hardwood. Why pay for hardwood when you can have all the benefits without the maintenance? Our Pewter Oak features a distressed appearance that goes exceptionally well with Robert’s neutral-colored furniture and painted walls. On top of being beautiful, it clicks together with ease and offers a versatile, affordable alternative to more expensive flooring options. It’s also exceptionally moisture- and scratch-resistant, making it ideal for high-traffic areas. Whether Robert is looking to make his basement a second living room or simply a place for guests to relax, our laminate is built to withstand any challenges life may present.

Thanks for choosing us, Robert; love the look!
