Soon, the groundhog will pop its furry little head out of the ground and let us know if we can expect the spring season to arrive early or have to endure another six weeks of winter. Whatever the weather may be, there’s no time like the present to install those floors you’ve been eyeing all year. This week, we’re featuring some pretty incredible transformations – and they’re done by YOU! These five before-and-after photos may encompass what Lumber Liquidators is all about, but they also showcase your individual style, creativity, and dedication to making your home as beautiful as possible. Want to be featured in next week’s blog? Hop on over to our Before & After site to upload your own renovations and see what other people have been up to. While we can’t feature every submission we receive, we assure you, we look at them all! Have a great week, and let’s hope the groundhog doesn’t see its shadow.
Dana Brown – Mason, OH
When Dana replaced the carpet in her dining room with our Builder’s Pride Chocolate Birch Select Solid hardwood flooring, she took a giant step forward in achieving her dream home. Our Chocolate Birch is the perfect choice if you’re looking to live comfortably in your home while increasing its value at the same time. In today’s world, there is a desire to return to a more relaxed way of living, which has inspired many to embrace the beauty of their surroundings. Our hardwood flooring takes that inspiration and beautifully encompasses it through its performance and design. Our stained pre-finished floor also comes with a 50-year warranty to ensure you’ll enjoy your floors for years to come. In Dana’s home, our flooring elegantly complements the wood dining room set and wall color, while also lending sophistication to the space. And the best part about all this is that hardwood doesn’t require the same maintenance as carpet. “It looks fantastic,” Dana wrote.
We think so too, Dana; thanks for sharing!
David Goetz – Houston, TX
David also saw past the deceptive look of carpet and installed our Mayflower Hunter Red Oak Quick Clic Engineered flooring in its place in his family room. Hunter Red Oak – with its easy-to-install click design – offers both beauty and versatility. The classic honey color and oak graining make it adaptable to any room or design theme, offering a harmonious blend of quality and style. It’s backed by a 30-year warranty and is available in a variety of textures, finishes, and stains. In David’s family room, our engineered flooring warmly reflects natural light and brightens up the space considerable. It also adds dimension and makes the room look much bigger than it previously did. And with our easy-click technology, installing this beautiful floor is as easy as snapping your fingers. All you need to do is simply click the planks together. No glue or nails necessary! And if moisture is a concern, this flooring is built to withstand the challenge – it’s an optimal choice for high-moisture areas. “Love the way it looks,” David wrote.
We’re so happy you love it, David; that’s like music to our ears!
Joe Haertle – Mukwonago, WI
After building a bar in his basement, Joe needed a floor that was going to work in higher humidity areas. Our Tranquility Rustic Reclaimed Oak Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring seemed to be the best option. Not only is our durable luxury vinyl flooring waterproof (making it great for bathrooms, kitchens, and mudrooms), it also comes in an ultra-realistic wood look. It offers great warmth and texture right underneath your feet, and can be installed with peel-and-stick, glue-down, or click-together ease. The possibilities are endless. This budget-sensitive flooring also has a top coat that protects against scratches, scuffs, and stains, so everyday life doesn’t get in the way of having the perfect look. It’s easy to clean and if something were to happen, it’s protected with a lifetime warranty. We’re pretty sure it can’t get better than that. Why pay an arm and a leg for more expensive types of flooring when our Rustic Reclaimed LVP has it all? “I am very happy with the results,” Joe wrote.
Let’s celebrate, Joe; awesome job!
Elizabeth Acosta – Katy, TX
A weekend project quickly changed the entire look of Elizabeth’s home. She installed our Avella Cottage Wood Ash High Definition Porcelain flooring in her dining room, and what a difference a few hours of grease work can accomplish! Our Cottage Wood Ash looks like wood but applies like tile, making it a great waterproof product for bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens. However, it also works well in living rooms, patio areas, or walls – anywhere you want to put it really. Backed by a 30-year warranty, our flooring is made for a concrete subfloor, although a wood subfloor may work as well. The key is to have a stable and completely leveled subfloor that doesn’t move. When it comes to looks, though, our Cottage Wood Ash can’t be beat. It features beautifully contrasting light and dark brown hues and a golden undertone. Its neutral coloring means it’ll match almost every style of home, whether you want modern, rustic, Western, or classic. “I’ve received so many compliments from friends and family,” Elizabeth wrote. “The best part of all of this is the wood-look tile will be durable for years to come.”
Thanks for choosing us, Elizabeth; the result is fantastic!
Aaron Horton – Ellenwood, GA
When Aaron remodeled his bathroom, he not only applied new paint to the cabinets and walls, but also installed our Coreluxe Coal Creek Oak Engineered Vinyl Plank flooring. Our EVP flooring 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. Coreluxe stands up to heavy traffic, busy families, and even pets. And its no-fuss maintenance is as attractive as its authentic hardwood look. It’s ideal for any room, even bathrooms, kitchens, and basements. As for performance, its top coat protects against scratches, dents, stain, and wear, and wet mopping and common household spills won’t damage the floor. In Aaron’s bathroom, the floor’s rich, dark brown hues beautifully complement the white cabinetry and shower curtain while also maintaining a distinctive look that immediately draws the eye. Plus, its dark coloring helps to hide unwanted sights, like dust and dirt.
We appreciate you sharing this, Aaron; everything looks great!
