Throw out some tricks and pick up some treats because it’s Halloween! Whether you’re simply planning to curl up on the couch and curl your toes to a scary thriller or are getting dressed up for a spooky night out on the town, we hope that your Halloween is safe and fun. This week, we’re ghoulishly giddy to share our top five transformations. For good reason, bamboo, laminate, and hardwood are hogging the spotlight. Lumber Liquidators always strives to produce high-performance, on-trend flooring; this week, we’ve succeeded at that. Want to see your own transformation on our blog? Visit our Before & After site! Happy reading!
Leticia Aleman – Weslaco, TX
Leticia’s pup has never looked more regal – just like her flooring. After 20 years of living with a floor she couldn’t love, Leticia installed our Major Brand Bronze Stand bamboo flooring in her bedroom. Now, it’s love at first sight. It features lavish strands of dark, medium, and light brown hues, and its bamboo offers luxury and sophistication. When it’s paired with the wall and baseboard trim, it looks as if she is staying in a hotel. Over the years, bamboo has become quite popular as more and more people become aware of the fragile state of the environment. Because it’s a grass rather than wood, it grows far more quickly than a tree and replenishes naturally – making it a renewable resource. When Leticia chose this floor, she chose to help the environment. “I love my floor,” she wrote. “I haven’t said that in 20 years.”
We are so happy you can say that now, Leticia; great job!
Luis Navas – Hainesport, NJ
When Luis turned one of the bedrooms into a nursery, it was important that the floor could withstand the adventures of parenthood. That’s why he went for our Morning Star Distressed Silver Stone Engineered bamboo flooring. While the baby probably couldn’t care less about the color and texture of the new flooring, Luis can enjoy its weathered and smoky look. The bamboo may be considered a grass, but it certainly does look like hardwood flooring. It’s such a beautiful, neutral color that complements most styles; as the child grows, the room will bloom with him or her. Our bamboo, backed by a 50-year warranty, is incredibly durable and can easily take on the challenges presented by small children and energetic pets. Not to mention, homeowners can install it either as a floating system, with glue or by using our easy-click technology. No hassle and no frustration.
We hope this flooring can grow alongside your child, Luis; thanks for choosing us!
Brad Schmelzer – Castle Rock, CO
When Brad replaced the carpet in his dining room with our Builder’s Pride Tobacco Road Acacia Prefinished Solid Stained flooring, he invested in natural beauty. Our flooring, which features golden and reddish brown hues with exotic graining and texture, is easy to install and backed by a 50-year warranty – so it’ll continue to amaze Brad for years to come. The best part? Owners can clean hardwood more thoroughly than carpeting, and it’s a very durable surface that is easy to maintain. When it’s properly cared for, this flooring will be extremely resistant to mildew and other types of problems associated with carpeting. Plus, this flooring comes from natural material so each board will vary in color or shade – leaving you with a finished floor that is truly a unique piece of art. “No issues at all, and it looks great,” Brad wrote.
We’re glad you think so, Brad; bravo!
Rhonda Rable – Adams City, CO
Our Dream Home Bull Barn Oak laminate flooring has been making waves in homes across the country. We’re just so happy that Rhonda finally joined the bandwagon! When she installed our flooring, it was most definitely the finishing touch (even if it was installed first). Its distressed appearance and rustic feel add a much-needed dimension and character to the space. On top of being handscraped and textured to look just like wood flooring, our laminate comes with a high-gloss finish and is engineered to resist scratches and stains while staying gorgeous. It’s V-groove design and 3mm pre-glued attached underlayment makes it exceptionally easy to install. “This flooring made all the difference in the look of my home,” Rhonda wrote.
Your home looks fantastic, Rhonda; awesome work!
Michael Spurling – Keyser, WV
At Lumber Liquidators, we’re suckers for historic homes. Michael’s house was built in 1900 and had vintage carpet to go with it. However, it was eventually time to replace it. He chose our Dream Home Crystal Springs Hickory laminate flooring, and we can’t get enough of it. Not only does it fill his home with harmonious style, but the laminate comes with a 10mm moisture-resistant core, a 2mm pre-glued sound-proofing foam underlay, the feel of real wood grain, and a 30-year warranty. Its medium brown hues also lend warmth to the space and perfectly pair with the yellow walls. While the house may be incredibly old, our laminate will soon have a history of its own. “Absolutely love this flooring,” Michael wrote. “I cannot say enough good things on how Lumber Liquidators’ flooring and service are.”
You’re going to make us blush, Michael; we should be thanking you!
