Love is in the air – not only for our significant other, family, friends, and pets, but also for the roof over our heads and the food on our table. And we would go so far as to even say for the flooring beneath our feet. Yes, what’s a home without our dream flooring? Just as we sometimes feel better with our favorite pair of shoes, coat, eyeliner, tie, or purse, homeowners tend to feel happier when their home becomes a reflection of who they are. This week, we’re showcasing that reflection by sharing our favorite before-and-after photos. It continuously brightens our day and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we hope you’re feeling the love, too. Want to be featured on next week’s blog? Visit our Before & After site and submit your own home transformation. We promise we look at them all. Happy Valentine’s Day! We hope you spend it with some of the most cherished people (and flooring) in your life.
Susan C. Brun – Savannah, GA
Susan had her 15-year-old gray carpet removed from the family room and decided to have the fireplace re-covered in ledger stone before installing our Tranquility Pioneer Park Sycamore Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring. What a difference a little floor magic can accomplish! Our durable luxury vinyl flooring planks are waterproof and make a great addition in bathrooms, kitchens, and mudrooms (as Susan can attest when her furry relative had an accident the day after installation). On top of that, they come in ultra-realistic wood looks and offer great warmth and texture under your feet. Even installation is a breeze – you can either peel and stick, glue down, or click together the boards with ease. It’s definitely a budget-sensitive option for homeowners who are looking for functionality at a reasonable price. “The room looks totally different, and we love it,” Susan wrote.
The best news we’ve had all day, Susan; thanks for sharing!
Jennifer Henry – Decorah, IA
Jennifer was in the middle of a fixer-upper when she installed our Coreluxe Driftwood Hickory Engineered Vinyl Plank flooring in the living room, and we think she made the perfect choice. Our engineered vinyl plank combines the durability, comfort, and waterproof features of luxury vinyl plank with an innovative rigid core that clicks together with ease – making it a great choice for DIYers like Jennifer! Not only will it stand up to heavy traffic, busy families, and pets, but its no-fuss maintenance is as attractive as its authentic hardwood look. It’s the ideal floor for any room in the house, even the bathroom, kitchen, or basement. Not to mention it comes with a 50-year warranty. We don’t think you can get much better than that. Still not convinced? You might want to take Jennifer’s word. “The flooring is so nice,” she wrote. “It’s comfortable to walk on and is kid- and pet-friendly also!”
We’re so glad you’re enjoying it so far, Jennifer; it looks beautiful in your home!
Tu Nguyen – Nashville, TN
It was a labor of love when Tu installed our Dream Home Cascade Falls Oak laminate flooring in the living room, but once all the right tools were assembled and all the hard cuts were made, the flooring did its job and laid down effortlessly. Our laminate features a textured, distressed appearance that lends a beautiful rustic feel to any living space. Plus, the V-groove design, high-gloss finish, and pre-glued attached underlayment make it exceptionally durable and easy to install. It’s even backed by a 30-year warranty and is engineered to resist scratches and stains, while staying beautiful for years to come. The best part is that you don’t have to sacrifice an arm and a leg to have natural-looking flooring, as Tu can probably attest. Laminate replicates the natural color, grain, and texture of hardwood, yet offers a versatile and affordable alternative. And did we mention it pretty much requires very little maintenance? “Thanks, Lumber Liquidators,” Tu wrote.
Thank you for choosing us, Tu; we appreciate the support!
Daniel Webb – Port Richey, FL
Daniel laid down 650 square feet of our Dream Home Fairfield County Hickory laminate flooring in the living room, kitchen, and hallway, and what a transformation! Our Fairfield County Hickory not only lends harmonious style to the space, but its light and medium brown hues – not to mention distinctive swirls and burls – give off a warm glow and naturally reflect lighting, brightening up the space significantly. Yes, this product has it all: a moisture-resistant core, plus a pre-glued sound-proofing foam underlay, the feel of real wood grain, and a 30-year warranty. What does this mean for you? Well, not only will it look beautiful no matter where you place it, but it’ll help muffle the everyday sounds that normally come with hardwood-like flooring. And it’s designed for a glueless laying, so installation is a snap. And if you’re looking for a more natural look, we suggest mixing the planks before installing.
We love the look of the place, Daniel; awesome work!
Elizabeth Martinez – Litchfield Park, AZ
Last but not least, we have Elizabeth’s amazing before-and-after! She installed our Dream Home Buffalo Springs Chestnut laminate flooring in the kitchen, and we’re pretty sure the space has never looked better. Our Buffalo Springs Chestnut is backed by a 50-year warranty and is a premium laminate that will probably exceed all of your expectations. As with all of our laminates, it comes with our easy-click technology, which makes installation effortless, and features a moisture-resistant and sound-reducing core. It’s also Greenguard and Greenguard Gold Indoor Air Quality certified. And if you choose to use additional padding, Lumber Liquidators recommends the use of Bellawood Platinum, Bellawood Premium, Quiet Walk, or the Eco Silent Sound underlayment, which offer the best joint and seam support, while ensuring superior thermal sound reduction qualities. “Love the color of the new flooring,” Elizabeth wrote. “It sure warms up the room a bit.”
We couldn’t agree more, Elizabeth; it’s gorgeous!
