Featured Style: Flooring on the Walls & Ceiling


You already know our hardwood, laminate, and tile look terrific on the floor. But you can also send your room’s style quotient soaring by adding flooring to the walls and ceiling! This hot new trend is a terrific way to turn a plain surface into an eye-catching focal point. An accent wall or ceiling adds rich texture and one-of-a-kind pizzazz to virtually any space.

How can you do it? We have two great options. First, you can use decorative wall panels – hardwood strips mounted on wooden backing. They’re versatile and easy to install. Second, you can simply install flooring on the wall. We have numerous suitable options, including prefinished hardwood, laminate, and even wood-look tile. Intrigued?

It adds warmth and character …


Ken Kich of Pittsburgh, PA, wanted to add character to a “plain white-walled fireplace” – and installing our Virginia Mill Works Tobacco Road engineered hardwood did the trick! The hardwood brings warmth and natural beauty that plain white walls simply can’t produce. The result is a fabulous focal point filled with character. And arranging comfortable furnishings nearby ensured the spot is perfect for cozying up on a cool evening.

It adds visual interest …


Plain wall in the bedroom? No thanks! Daniel Budnik of South Lyon, MI, wanted a “distressed barn wood accent wall” – and our Dream Home Bull Barn Oak laminate was a great choice! The wall anchors the bedroom and lends visual interest to the sometimes-overlooked space behind the headboard. The wall is brimming with rustic style, and the quiet color is ideal for the restful space.

It highlights unique architectural features …


Removing a load-bearing wall between the formal living room and family room yielded an exciting opportunity – and Rebecca Bonhomme of New Windsor, NY, jumped on it! Rather than leaving the beam as is, she installed our Virginia Mill Works Golden Acacia to add vivid color and texture to the beam. “We are so pleased with how it turned out,” she wrote, “and get tons of compliments when people walk into the house now!”

It makes a bold style statement …


Jeff Hillman of Gloucester, VA, wanted to do give his 1942 cabin a unique look – so he installed 800 square feet of our Clover Lea New England Pine hardwood on the exposed rafters. Wow! The light amber surface, speckled with natural knots, draws the eye upward, making the space feel even larger. “A complete transformation!” he wrote. “We love it.”

  1. I’m interested in applying Lumber Liquidator’s vinyl planks on a section of my living room ceiling. Is there a way to install directly onto the existing sheetrock? What kind of adhesive should I use? Are there any videos you can suggest to show me?
