Welcome back, readers; we hope you enjoyed your weekend! As always, this week we’ve picked five of our favorite remodeling projects from our Before & After site to showcase the tremendous difference a new floor can make in your home. Read on for some incredible transformations, and hopefully some inspire you to start that renovation project you’ve always dreamed of!
Scott Fleming – Hoisington, KS
What was once an old garage in an old house became a masterpiece of a master suite. Scott really went all-out with his renovation project, and it shows in his new bedroom: The newly constructed walls and the addition of our Antique Strand Handscraped Bamboo create a warm, harmonious atmosphere. The bamboo in particular shines with its smooth finish and stylish gradient. But he didn’t stop at laying the floor: “The baseboards were also made from the flooring, from cutting the tongue off and routing a fancy edge on them.” What a thorough job, Scott! Your project is inspiring.
Tom Lombardo – Denver, CO
Without the off-white carpet and red accent wall, Tom’s new dining room looks almost unrecognizable. An instrumental element of this transformation was our Ruo Horizontal Handscraped Bamboo, which grounds the room with its deep, rich brown. The dark color also works nicely with the pale blues of the walls and rug, providing excellent contrast. And he did it all by himself! “Used a diagonal cut,” he wrote. “Learned from the Internet. Super easy.” Congratulations on a job well done, Tom!
Jonathan Wesolowski – Margate, FL
Jonathan’s bedroom went from ordinary to extraordinary with the addition of our Natural Acacia. This laminate, with its handscraped finish that looks and feels like real wood, brightens the room considerably. It elevates the area’s elegance and style while complementing the light wood of the bed frame. And he’s considering renovating even more of his house! “Only did the master bedroom at this time,” he wrote. “Fitting everything together wasn’t too bad, and it was a fun job to do.” Great job, Jonathan! We’re glad you enjoyed the process.
Richie Bagdon – Hatfield, MA
While Richie started with no floor or walls, he ended with a stunning new addition to his home! An essential part of the process was our Brazilian Pecan, a wonderful wood with best-in-class stain, gloss, and scuff resistance. Its variation in hues creates remarkable contrast and complexity. “Went to Lumber Liquidators to shop for flooring,” he wrote. “Saw Brazilian Pecan and knew this was what I wanted. Love it everyday.” It was love at first sight! We’re happy you love your new floor, Richie.
Lauren Nolan-Sellers – Norristown, PA
When Lauren had a pipe burst in her basement, she decided to make the best of an unfortunate situation by having a company redo her space. The results speak for themselves: Our Golden Teak Vinyl, as well as the new fresh coat of paint and stylish décor, completely upgrade the room. The company who did the installation wrote a glowing review: “We immediately looked at Lumber Liquidators for flooring and chose vinyl plank flooring at a huge discount. We love its durability and its beauty! Our client loved the finished product. She literally cried tears of joy!!” Wow, what a story! Congratulations on your fantastic basement, Lauren!
