DeKarla Moore – Montgomery, AL


Buying a home can be overwhelming, especially when you consider all the things that need to be done to make your home yours. However, when DeKarla became a new homeowner, she wasn’t the least bit phased. After researching our Dream Home Redwater River Hewed Oak laminate flooring, she finally bit the bullet and installed it in the family room. We must say, it was an excellent decision. Redwater River Hewed Oak is a premium laminate that lends casual charm to any space. Its weathered gray and taupe colors are a trend-forward style, and it’s a top-quality laminate that is affordable for any budget. On top of that, its V-groove design makes it incredibly easy to install, which prevents hours of frustration. Even better, it’s backed by a 50-year warranty, so worry not! Lumber Liquidators has you covered. “I love it,” DeKarla wrote. “The color is great. Gray with brown tones!”

We are so happy to hear that, DeKarla; thank you for choosing us!

Geri Lynn Smith – North Waterboro, ME


Most homeowners know when it’s time to put on the gloves and change things up. Take Geri, for example. When it came time to replace the old flooring in her bathroom, she pulled up her sleeves and got to it. She installed our Coreluxe Natural Maple Engineered Vinyl Plank flooring, and we think it’s a very appropriate choice. Our EVP flooring combines the durability, comfort, and waterproof features of luxury vinyl plank with an innovative rigid core that clicks together with ease; it’s a great solution DIYers (like Geri, of course). What’s more, this flooring has no problem standing up to heavy foot traffic, busy families, and pets. When it comes to the bathroom, that’s a must. And its no-fuss maintenance is as attractive as its authentic hardwood look. Like we said, it’s ideal in any room, even bathrooms, kitchens, and basements! “Completed in a weekend, and it is fabulous,” Geri wrote. “Thank you.”

No, thank you, Geri; it looks great!

Steven Simmons – Saint Augustine, FL


When Hurricane Matthew hit the shore of Florida in October 2016, residents knew their homes were subject to impact. Unfortunately, Steven had to remodel his entire home after the storm. Thankfully, Lumber Liquidators was there to help! After hearing about us from a friend, Steven took a chance and installed our Dream Home Delaware Bay Driftwood laminate flooring. Our Delaware Bay Driftwood is an affordable, on-trend flooring that is inspired by the weathered appearance of driftwood. It features light and airy creams, tans, browns, and grays – a stylish look reminiscent of timeworn wood. And because it’s a laminate, installation is a breeze! Simply click each plank into place. In no time, you’ll have a flooring that will be able to withstand all elements. It’s even moisture resistant and has a sound-reducing core, so the shuffling of pets and people should be no concern. “We saved a lot, and they offered us 10 percent off due to Hurricane Matthew, which was super nice,” Steven wrote. “We then returned to get our baseboards as well.”

We’re so glad we could help in your time of need, Steven; your home is beautiful!

Robert Mabe – Belews Creek, NC


After 10 years of having carpet in his bedroom, Robert couldn’t wait to change things up. However, his three large labs were always in the back of his mind. Was there a floor durable enough to withstand their energy? He needed an easy-to-clean option as well. It turns out, there was. Robert installed our Morning Star Prefinished Solid Strand Carbonized bamboo flooring, and he’s never looked back. We’re not lying when we say Morning Star bamboo floorings are one of the best bamboo floors on the market today. Strand bamboo – which is twice as hard as oak – is an optimal choice for busy homes when durability is needed to stand up to the wear and tear of family foot traffic, active kids, and even pets. And since it’s a naturally sustainable grass that grows spontaneously after harvest, you can feel good about making an environmentally friendly flooring decision. Our floor is also backed by a 30-year warranty. “This is something we should have purchased years ago,” Robert wrote. “All of our family and friends love our new floor. Thanks, LL; great product.”

Thanks for being a loyal customer, Robert; the results are outstanding!

Kelly Norton – Midland, MI


Kelly’s kitchen and dining room received an upgrade after she knocked down a wall and installed our Dream Home Pewter Oak laminate flooring. Her place couldn’t look better! Our laminate – which features a smoky gray hue and characteristic “wood” markings – beautifully complements the white appliances and trim on the wall. Not only is it physically appealing, but it’s also designed to perform well. Laminate is an easy-to-install and easy-to-maintain floor that replicates the natural color, grain, and texture of hardwood. However, you don’t have to empty your pockets to afford it. When it comes time to install it, our floor clicks together with ease – making it a versatile and affordable alternative. It’s also exceptionally moisture and scratch resistant, and it’s ideal for high-traffic areas, just like her kitchen. “Love how it turned out,” Kelly wrote.

We do, too, Kelly; thanks for sharing!
