Shari Johnson – Gurnee, IL
Shari installed our beautiful Bellawood Amber Brazilian Oak Prefinished Solid hardwood flooring throughout her entire ranch home, and it’s easy to see how Brazilian Oak complements any style of home. In fact, this hardwood boasts gorgeous tones that range from golden to strawberry, and it features straight, fine graining. Its unique color range has made the floor a great choice among homeowners and will fill any room with elegance. It’s also proudly finished in the U.S., which is just one signature of Bellawood. Yes, it’s true: Bellawood is about making better flooring. Just ask Shari! “The installation was made easier by straight boards and an amazing quality,” Shari wrote. “The team at our local store in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was there to answer any questions and helped us to properly bid and place the order.”
We’re so happy to hear your experience was a good one, Shari; we love the look!
Jamie Stevens – Champaign, IL
Most carpets, unfortunately, have a short (and stained) life. When Jamie ripped out the carpet in the entire house and replaced it with our Supreme Bamboo Prefinished Solid Strand Hazelnut bamboo flooring, the house got a “floor lift.” The best part? It was an environmentally friendly decision. Strand bamboo is twice as hard as oak and is an optimal choice for busy home when durability is needed to stand up to the wear and tear of family foot traffic, active kids, and pets. In Jamie’s case, the new flooring is durable enough to survive three teenage boys. And since bamboo is a naturally sustainable grass that grows spontaneously after harvest, the family can rest easy knowing they’ve reduced their footprint – on this floor and on the environment. “It turned out gorgeous, even better than I imagined,” Jamie wrote. “And the price was very reasonable.”
We’re glad that it exceeded your expectations, Jamie; thanks for choosing us!
Stanley Collver – Jamestown, NY
You don’t need to change everything about your living space to achieve your dream home. Stanley simply installed our Mayflower Millrun Butter Rum Oak Prefinished Solid flooring, and look at what happened. His family room appears completely different – and for the better! Oak is an extremely popular flooring choice in American homes today. Its open grain is absolutely captivating and features long rays and the occasional swirl and burl. Put simply, it’s a flooring that quietly demands attention thanks to the unmistakable beauty of oak. It’s also backed by a 15-year warranty, so if anything should happen, Lumber Liquidators ensures we’ll do everything in our power to make it right. There’s no doubt you’ll find extraordinary value with Mayflower, especially since it offers a variety of textures, finishes, and stains. “Our room is so much warmer – visually and physically,” Stanley wrote. “I waited too long for this floor of my dreams!”
We couldn’t have said it any better, Stanley; awesome work!
Maria Karasavas – Philadelphia, PA
First-time flooring installations require some time, effort, and a little bit of creativity, but the result is always worth it. Maria installed our Dream Home Rocky Mountain Rustic Maple laminate flooring, and while it took longer than expected since she’d never replaced a floor before, she’s more than pleased with the transformation. If you’re looking to add casual style to any room, then our Rocky Mountain Maple is the perfect choice. The rustic maple grain features exquisite honey, tan, and cream. The graining dazzles with its contrasting light, medium, and dark brown knots that give each plank plenty of natural charm and beauty. Plus, laminate is an easy-to-install and easy-to-maintain floor that replicates the color, grain, and texture hardwood. Your friends and family won’t see the difference! “We worked through it, and it came out great,” Maria wrote.
A little persistence goes a long way, Maria; you’ve created a work of art!
Raul Gonzalez – Port Saint Lucie, FL
Hardwood is a great way to add dimension to even the smallest of spaces. Take Raul’s hallway, for example. The path may be narrow, but our Bellawood Select Brazilian Cherry Prefinished Solid hardwood flooring beautifully reflects the overhead lighting to create the appearance of a wider walkway. What’s more: Brazilian Cherry is one of our most popular wood because of its ideal balance of rich beauty and proven durability. Its majestic colors range from a yellowish tan to reddish brown when just milled, and it deepens significantly to an exquisite cherry brown as it ages. While Raul’s flooring is already gorgeous, it’s only going to get more magnificent over the years. It’s also two times more scratch resistant and four times more abrasion resistant than other brands. Plus, it’s backed by a transferable 100-year warranty. When you choose Bellawood, you’re choosing a lifetime of exceptional beauty and quality for your home.
We love what you’ve done with the place, Raul; excellent job!
