It’s durable …

Under the impression that only hardwood can withstand the challenges of daily life? Think again. Laminate – which is made by bonding layers together – is an easy-to-install and easy-to-maintain option, not to mention exceptionally durable one. What we mean by that is that it’s resistant to staining, scratches, wear, and fading, so active children and pets shouldn’t ever be a concern. It’s also an optimal choice for spaces where water is a minor concern. And if you’re worried about fading, know that laminate stays the same beautiful shade whether it’s in direct sunlight or not. With a remarkably realistic design that replaces the natural color, grain, and texture of hardwood, friends and family will love it!

It’s a floating floor …

Probably one of the greatest features of laminate is that it is designed to be a floating floor. One install it over existing plywood subfloor or any other hard-surface floor, so you won’t need to dedicate any extra time to tearing your home up. Another wonderful feature of laminate is that very little waste is created when you install it. Unlike hardwood, which can feature blemishes, laminate planks have no imperfections. As for installation, all you need to do is simply click each plank into place. Our easy-click technology makes it that effortless!

It works well with underlayment …

This flooring doesn’t come with an attached padding, but Lumber Liquidators recommends the use of our Bellawood Premium underlayment or ECO Silent Sound underlayment. These quality underlayments will best support the joints while ensuring superior thermal sound reduction. They’re also highly recommended for use with condominium associations, project planners, and building specifiers.

Our customers love it …


Krista Wolfe of Woburn, MA, took matters into her own hands when she demolished the existing ceramic tile to expose the slab. When she hired a contractor to install our Smith Mountain Laurel in her kitchen, little did she know she would create a kitchen fit for a king! Our laminate – paired with the neutral backsplash and dark-colored cabinets and white appliances – immediately draws the eye with its dark burls and characteristic markings. It really does look like hardwood. The best part? This regal floor will remain beautiful for years to come. The kitchen may be one of the busiest rooms in the entire house, but our Smith Mountain Laurel is up for the challenge! “It looks fantastic,” Krista wrote.

Thanks for sharing, Krista; we love how it turned out! For more inspirational transformations like Krista’s, check out our Before & After site!
