Welcome back, readers; we hope you enjoyed your weekend! As we do every week, we’ve chosen five of our favorite renovations from our Before & After site that show how a new floor can transform the look and feel of any room. Read on to see this week’s picks!
Elizabeth Pace – Cleveland, TN
As Elizabeth wrote: “After seven years of tea parties and beauty boutiques of spilled nail polish and makeup, the carpet of our two sweet little girls’ rooms was ready to be upgraded!” She chose our Bolivian Rosewood because of its “durability and beauty for our girls’ room,” and she couldn’t have made a better choice. The floor’s unique pink and reddish tones complement the pink walls nicely, and its stain, gloss, and scuff resistance ensure a long-lasting quality. “It’s beautiful and it was so worth doing it ourselves!” she wrote. “Thanks for all the help and great prices, Lumber Liquidators!” Thank you, Elizabeth, for sharing your beautiful transformation with us!
Perri Trenk – Plantation, FL
Perri decided one day to replace her off-white carpet with our Bellawood Brazilian Koa, and she couldn’t have picked a better floor! The Brazilian Koa, often called Tigerwood, is well known for its distinctive orange coloring and dark brown striping. It works wonders in her bedroom, providing nice contrast for the light walls while tying in her darker décor. “Loved the experience of shopping at Lumber Liquidators and absolutely love the flooring,” she wrote. Congratulations on a job well done, Perri!
Melissa Craig – Lakewood, CO
Melissa decided to “start small” with her renovation projects, so she began with her hallway. Our Prospect Bay Hickory works wonderfully in the narrow space! It has a natural, worn appearance, sculpted to accentuate the rustic character of natural hickory lumber, and it changes the character of the whole hallway. The darkness of the wood also contrasts nicely with the white walls while matching the baseboards, doors, and frames. “My husband did the install and did a great job,” she wrote. “We are very happy with the end result.” Superb work, Melissa!
James H. – Geneva, IL
James decided to replace his old kitchen tile with our Silver Lake Oak Laminate, resulting in not only an upgraded floor, but an entirely upgraded kitchen! The floor morphs the space, adding a modern feel and subtle elegance. And in choosing a laminate, he chose a floor that has the look and feel of real wood but is easy to install and maintain. Its remarkable resistance and exceptional durability make it the perfect choice for a kitchen. “One of the easiest projects I have taken on,” he wrote. “Minimum amount of tools needed, and I think it looks professional.” We agree, James; fantastic job!
Dustin Johnson – Ruthven, IA
Dustin took on quite the ambitious project of covering a 23-by-30-foot living room with our Highland Hills Hickory laminate flooring – over concrete! But as you can see, he did an exceptional job. The laminate’s easy-to-install, easy-to-maintain nature makes it the perfect choice for such a large area. The deep, dark browns of the laminate seem to make the room even larger, reflecting the natural light with a sleek gloss. Its rich color also brings out the darker bricks of his eye-catching fireplace. What a beautiful renovation, Dustin! We’re impressed.
