Happy Monday, everyone! It’s time yet again to share some terrific Before & After submissions shared by readers like you. It wasn’t easy narrowing the many makeovers down to five, but we focused on choosing photos that really demonstrate the big difference new floors can make in a space. Keep reading to see the five dramatic transformations. Can’t get enough of them? Head over to our site to see dozens of submissions featuring floors in various styles.
Ashlee Parks – Dallas, GA
A big, open living room demands special floors – and neutral carpet doesn’t always cut it. In Ashlee’s living room, our Delaware Bay Driftwood laminate injects a dose of visual interest. Designed to evoke the natural beauty of the beach, the weathered-looking laminate is the perfect complement to the large stone fireplace and blue walls. The finished room is casual yet elegant – the ideal spot to relax with friends and family. Nicely done, Ashlee; we love the new look!
Tammy Baggott – Goodlettsville, TN
Tammy knew that new flooring was in the cards throughout her home’s first floor – and it was the before and after photos on this blog that helped her decide exactly which floor to choose! With its eye-catching appearance, our Bull Barn Oak laminate adds a generous helping of high-end style to her kitchen. The surface lends rustic charm thanks to its textured, distressed look, yet it has a sophisticated side that’s right at home in the elegant space. “We love it!” Tammy wrote. So do we, Tammy; amazing job!
Kelly Murray – Edgewood, KY
In a busy household like Kelly’s, the living room is the place to be. She bid her neutral carpet farewell in favor of our Brazilian Cherry laminate – and it looks fantastic! (Even her dog is smiling!) The surface features hints of red amidst the medium brown for a rich, elegant look. Anchored by the floor, the room’s color scheme (shades of tan, blue, and yellow) forms a cohesive appearance. The result? A fab space filled with personal style. “Love my new floors!” Kelly wrote. Looks great, Kelly; well done!
Corinne Hable – Fort Myers, FL
For Corinne, removing her home’s 11-year-old carpet was an easy decision: “No more allergic attacks, dust, or carpet cleaning,” she wrote. Installing our Golden Teak Click Resilient vinyl not only improved her lifestyle – it also took the room to a whole new level! Featuring the look of exotic hardwood, this comfy-underfoot vinyl adds natural appeal and instantly makes the room look larger. Corinne also loves that it’s easy to clean. What a terrific makeover, Corinne; thanks for sharing!
Jose Acosta – Leesburg, VA
This family room needed new floors – and DIYer Jose rose to the occasion! He decided to do away with the transition, and install our Casa de Colour Cherry Oak hardwood throughout. The choice opened up the room and enhanced the flow. The solid hardwood imbues a warm glow, and the narrow planks lend character and definition. “It was a challenge lacing the existing flooring with the new one, but I had fun with the installation,” Jose wrote. What nice work, Jose; we’re so impressed!
