Happy Monday, everyone! Another new week means it’s time for us to showcase some extra-special Before & After submissions. So many of you sent in photos of your dramatic room transformations, so we had a tough time choosing five favorites. The ones we chose really demonstrate the big difference new floors make in a room. If you want some inspiration, read on for this week’s makeovers … and remember to head over to our site to see even more!
T.J. Roberts – Mesa, AZ
T.j. embarked on an exciting home improvement project: replacing flooring in the living room, dining room, family room, and the bedrooms. Wow! In the family room, swapping out old carpet for our Dream Home Saint James Vintage Acacia laminate yielded big results: The eye-catching floor features a timeworn appearance that lends charm and character. The dark, rich hue contrasts with the walls and complements the furnishings for a unified appearance. “It looks amazing,” T.j. wrote. “We couldn’t be happier with our choice to go with a nice thick laminate from Lumber Liquidators.” Great job, T.j.; thanks for sharing!
Dennis Krenitsky – Harrisburg, PA
In a cozy family room complete with a fireplace, the right floor is a must. Dennis installed our Schön Quick Clic Engineered Hickory hardwood – and the change is dramatic! The hardwood imbues the space with natural beauty, and the vivid color variations look great with the brick fireplace. “[The floor] has really transformed our living space,” Dennis wrote. “Makes it more beautiful and seems more spacious.” We agree, Dennis; nice job!
Nicholas Clevidence – Arlington, OH
Nicholas recently remodeled the oldest portion of his home (which was constructed in 1898!), installing hardwood throughout. In this stately home office, he installed our Bellawood Brazilian Koa hardwood, and it couldn’t look better! Featuring notes of orange, chocolate, and black, the distinctive striping of the exotic hardwood (also called “tigerwood”) contrasts beautifully with the blue walls and crisp white accents. The floor lends eye-catching style that maintains the integrity of the design. Thanks for sharing your photo, Nicholas; what a terrific makeover!
James Bechtolt – Springboro, OH
James’s living room got a whole new look when he installed our Schön Natural Acacia Engineered hardwood in place of the neutral carpet. What a change! With its dramatic graining and rich colors, the surface brings a unique blend of rustic charm and sophisticated flair. The timeless hardwood coupled with chocolate brown furnishings and a modern rug produce a living room that’s the perfect blend of comfort and style. Nicely done, James; we’re impressed!
Mike Campbell – Midlothian, VA
Mike’s kitchen had a problem: The previous homeowner had incorrectly installed tile floors, resulting in loose and broken tiles. Tired of vacuuming up grout, Mike and his wife installed our Dream Home Diamond Mountain Manor laminate. The surface features dramatically contrasting colors, from deep to medium, for one-of-a-kind beauty. The dark floors set the stage for a wow-worthy kitchen that shines with style. “We planned to move in two years, but now my wife loves the floor so much she doesn’t want to move,” Mike wrote. We don’t blame her, Mike; love the new look!
Thanks to everyone who shared his or her success story with us last week; we always enjoy seeing the transformations in each home. For more inspiration, be sure to check out our Before & After site!
