Welcome back, readers; we hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving! As we do every week, we’ve selected some of our favorite Before & After submissions to feature here on our blog. These photos really show how a new floor can transform your home. It’s always difficult to pick just five posts; head over to our site to check out the rest, and read on for this week’s favorites!
Kevin Kline – Irmo, SC
When Kevin’s dishwasher flooded the house, he decided it was the perfect time to upgrade from linoleum and carpet to our Antique Click Strand Handscraped Bamboo! And what a transformation: The bamboo brings warmth to the space, adding a natural beauty that evokes feelings of luxury. Its tan hues balance all the various shades of brown in the room for a wonderful harmony. “In the end, the great results outweigh the stiff muscles,” he wrote. “Easy to work with.” Fantastic job, Kevin!
Anna Watson – Austin, TX
Anna decided to replace the“old and ugly carpet” in her master bedroom with our Click Strand Carbonized Bamboo, and she couldn’t have made a better choice! With the addition of the new wall color, the bamboo instantly brings warmth to the room while adding classic yet modern style. “The result was even more amazing than I expected,” she wrote. “The floor was easy to install and took me three days to prep, install, and clean up everything. Great and easy project.” Great job, Anna; we love it!
Mike Monnett – Toledo, OH
After Mike’s basement flooded, he decided to go with our Black Mountain Maple Vinyl for replacement flooring. “I knew of the vinyl planking and was very interested, especially since it is waterproof and great for basements,” he wrote. And this vinyl in particular is perfect for his space: Its maple-colored planks complement the darker woods of the walls, bar, and chairs beautifully. “I would highly recommend this floor,” he wrote. Wonderful job, Mike; it turned out great!
Karen Fabian – Mishicot, WI
Karen tore out the “stained and smelly” carpet in her living room and installed our Classic Gunstock Oak in its place – the perfect choice for this space! The oak’s rich tan color matches the room’s baseboards and window frames while contrasting with the off-white walls, creating a cohesive and harmonious feeling. “I love my new flooring and just ordered the same for the three bedrooms!!” she wrote. “I tell everyone who loves the floor to go to Lumber Liquidators. I can’t believe what a difference the hardwood makes for the look of this room.” We love it, Karen; amazing job!
Lisa Rylant – Coventry, CT
Two years ago, Lisa replaced the carpet in her living room with our Tobacco Road Acacia. “I am submitting these photos two years later because I wanted to tell everyone how much I still love my floors!” she wrote. “Everyone who comes to the house for the first time comments on how beautiful the hardwood is.” And for good reason: The hardwood’s characteristic swirling browns completely transform the look and feel of the room. “The public should also know that these floors hide all dirt and do not scratch easily,” she continued. “When they do get a scratch, nobody can find it. The floors were one of the best ‘house renovation’ ideas we ever had.” We’re glad you still love your floors, Lisa!
