Happy Monday, friends! In honor of Columbus Day, we’re exploring some of the best transformations of the week. As always, we had a difficult time just picking five before-and-after photos, but the renovations we’ve chosen this time really show what bold statements Lumber Liquidators’ flooring can make. If your submission wasn’t chosen this week, no worries! We look at every home makeover that is submitted on our Before & After site, so make sure to continue posting; you never know, you might just show up on next week’s blog. Remember, your flooring looks way too good to keep to yourself. Happy reading!
Jacqueline Porter – Milton, WV
When rainwater leaked into Jacqueline’s basement and caused mold and mildew damage to the carpet, cement floor, and baseboards, installing our Tranquility Grizzly Bay Oak Click Resilient vinyl wasn’t just an aesthetically pleasing decision; it also had to do with making sure her family didn’t get sick. It combines the look of hardwood with the ease and durability of resilient vinyl, plus the new flooring is moisture proof and scratch resistant. It can be installed virtually anywhere, is extremely easy to maintain and clean, and can actually be uninstalled and moved to another room later on. In Jacqueline’s basement, our resilient vinyl – with its natural wood look and light and dark grayish tones– creates a calming and comfortable ambiance. It’s the perfect place to sleep for friends and family who are visiting.
Terrific work, Jacqueline; the place looks great!
Clinton Carmen – Lexington, NC
Both of Clinton’s original bathrooms were a blast from the past. To catch up to the present, he installed our Tranquility Mount Craig Cherry Resilient vinyl. The transformation couldn’t be more stunning. As we previously mentioned, resilient vinyl is the perfect flooring choice for rooms where occasional moisture is a concern, such as in kitchens, bathrooms, and mudrooms. Additionally, our resilient vinyl is produced with recycled raw materials to make a beautiful, environmentally friendly flooring. The new flooring, which features rich shades of red with wood-like graining and knotting, enhances the look of the bathroom by lending luxury and elegance. The best part is that the flooring planks simply peel and stick when installing. Did we mention it’s also backed by a 50-year warranty? What a steal!
We love what you’ve done with the place, Clinton; great job!
Josh Smith – Buffalo, NY
We’re not lying when we say that our Morning Star Antique Strand Distressed bamboo is one of the best bamboo floors on the market today. Just ask Josh! He installed it in his kitchen, and all we can say is “wow.” Before, the kitchen was extremely dated with its black-and-white vinyl flooring and wallpaper borders, not to mention its dark wooden cabinetry and white appliances. Now, however, Josh’s kitchen is the epitome of modern. It evokes a feeling of luxury too: The new flooring beautifully complements the painted walls and stainless steel appliances because of its natural dark wood look with occasional black striping. Strand bamboo is an optimal choice for high-traffic homes that crave durability in the face of active kids and even pets. It’s twice as hard as oak, finished with a premium coating, and backed by a 30-year warranty. It’s even great for the environment.
This transformation takes our breath away, Josh; bravo!
Julia Dini – Red Bank, NJ
With so many submissions as of late featuring resilient vinyl, there’s proof in the pudding that this type of flooring offers the best in beauty and performance. Julia installed our Tranquility Magnolia Springs Hickory Click Resilient vinyl in her dining room, and we think it looks absolutely lovely with her dining room set. Showcasing a natural wood look with light and brown stripping, the new flooring adds a much-needed contrast to the space. It also gives the appearance of more room, making this perfect for when guests come over for a good home-cooked meal. Water resistant and installed with our easy click technology, this resilient vinyl is backed by a lifetime warranty (although we hope you will never need it)!
Wonderful transformation, Julia; we love it!
Jerry Crabtree – Elizabethtown, KY
Jerry and his family bought their home in 2010 and began upgrading the bathrooms. But the most dramatic transformation, by far, was the flooring, and we couldn’t agree more. After installing our Bellawood Brazilian Koa Prefinished Solid hardwood flooring in the living room, the new space looks twice the size it previously did. The distinctive orange coloring and deep brown striping make this flooring one of the most unique and exotic species available on the market today. And its durability is simply outstanding; it’s a floor that will stand up year after year to life’s everyday demands. Even with the addition of a fireplace, the new flooring distinctly stands out; it immediately draws the eye upon entering the room. When Jerry installed this flooring, he definitely picked the right option for his home.
Wowza, Jerry; keep it up!
