Customer Transformations: September 26 – 30


Just like that, September has come and gone. Time moves fast when you’re renovating! This week, we’re featuring transformations that really showcase what Lumber Liquidators has to offer. From hardwood to bamboo, laminate to engineered flooring, these five before-and-after photos illustrate what perfect flooring can do for the overall look of a home. As you will quickly find out, no space is the same, and neither is our flooring. Committed to providing millions of customers with quality flooring, we are always looking for an opportunity to show off your finished projects! If you love what you see this week, make sure to check out our Before & After site. Don’t forget to submit your own radical transformation too. We might just feature yours next.

Wayne Stewart – Bloomington, IL


There’s something special about a dining room; it’s pretty much the only room that can bring together a family with little distraction. As such, it deserves to be beautiful. Wayne replaced the carpet with our Bellawood Select Brazilian Chestnut Prefinished Solid hardwood flooring, and now the space can truly serve fine dining. With an enchanting chocolate tone and exceedingly fine graining, the new flooring perfectly complements the corresponding colors in the room. It also lends unrivaled warmth and elegance. It’s a perfect choice for any home because it’s one of the hardest and most durable woods on the market. We’re sure that Wayne is going to have a lifetime of exceptional beauty and quality with his new flooring.

Excellent work, Wayne; it looks marvelous!

 John Oneill – Apex, NC


After 16 years of carpet in the master bedroom, it was definitely time for an upgrade. So John installed our Dream Home Vintage Acacia laminate flooring. With a fresh coat of paint on the walls and an adorable feline for company, the new flooring offers deep, warm-to-medium brown hues that make for a stunning presentation. A regal alternative to hardwood, this laminate is easy to install because of its V-groove design. The best part is that it comes with a lifetime warranty. What we love so much about this transformation is that John got creative and laid the laminate in a diagonal pattern, matching the angle of the closet door in the bedroom. “Flooring worked out perfectly,” John wrote.

We can’t wait for the finishing touches, John; keep up posted!

Toya Brabham – Durham, NC


Nothing makes a renovation go faster than teamwork. Toya and her husband installed our Morning Star Distressed Silver Stone Engineered bamboo flooring in the family room, and they couldn’t be happier with the results. While the previous look of the room was nice, the new flooring adds much-needed flair and personality. Before, the fireplace blended into the carpeting. Now, the bamboo’s exotic graining and cool gray undertones help the fixture stand out. Bamboo is an environmentally friendly choice for customers looking to leave a smaller footprint, and it’s much harder than oak. Because it’s backed by a 50-year warranty, Toya and her family will be able to relax and enjoy their new space for years to come. “The staff and product were great,” Toya wrote. “The install was easy.”  

You did a wonderful job; Toya; awesome work!

Lisa Pace – Colorado Springs, CO


Lisa replaced 400 square feet of “terrible” carpet in the living room with our Mayflower Hickory Engineered flooring, and it was a snap to install. It offers natural beauty, durability, and affordability for every decor and budget. The new flooring beautifully reflects natural lighting and considerably brightens the space. With a golden brown color variation and a unique plank pattern, this flooring simply clicks together during installation. Wood is a natural material, so if you decide to go with this choice, expect each board to vary in color and shade (your very own personalized work of art). “My husband was doubtful that I could do it on my own, but now he wants to tackle more areas,” Lisa wrote. “Thank you, LL, for helping to make this project a success!”

Thank you for choosing us, Lisa; we love it!

Kim Means – Las Vegas, NV


When it came to tackling almost the entire house, Kim did not shy away. Not only did she install our Virginia Mill Works Tobacco Road Acacia Prefinished Handscraped Engineered flooring in the family room, but she also laid it in three different bedrooms. Talk about a major project! With its natural worn appearance and distressed coloring and grain variation, our flooring looks as if it were finished by hand. Its distinctive look will definitely not go unnoticed by family and friends. While the workmanship may reflect yesteryear, the new flooring modernizes the space and lends warm appeal. The only thing more beautiful than this flooring is our prices! “Very happy with our decision,” Kim wrote.

Stunning job, Kim; the family room looks wonderful!
