“Purchased a neglected foreclosure, and did a full remodel featuring Lumber Liquidators Tobacco Road Acacia!” – Brian, MI
Product: Tobacco Road Acacia
“My husband and I bought this ranch built in the '50's that still had all the original mocha and chrome fixtures. However, we decided to modernize the place, which included removing the shag carpet in the kitchen (gross!) and replacing it with gleaming planks of hickory.” – Stephanie, MA
Product: Natural Hickory
“3,500 sqft. of Siegel Strand Bamboo used.. it was so easy to install that I did it on my own with a few buddies. As you can see in the photo, the long set of steps was more difficult but turned out great. This picture should be encouraging for future customers.” – A.J., MO
Product: Siegel Click Strand
“We bought our new home with 15-year-old, damaged, dirty linoleum and decided to install this product. It looks magnificent, is scratch and water resistant and was easy to install! It's also very easy to clean, and doesn't get dull. We liked it so much in the Kitchen, that we ripped up the old, smelly carpet and put it down throughout the rest of the living space. What a difference!” – Ashley, TN
Product: Antique Click Strand
“We put these floors throughout our living, dining, kitchen, and hallway areas. They were very easy to install and look fantastic. We are very excited with the results.” – Rebekah, VA
Product: Click Strand Carbonized
“Went from a Galley Kitchen with 2 eating spaces and separate Living room to a wide open concept. We just love the floor and the installation was a dream.” – Paul, WI
Product: Tobacco Road Acacia Easy Click

The Look of Hardwood
Laminate and Vinyl – if you don’t have a huge budget, but you’re ready to tear out the dirty old carpet. The hardwood look is a lot more affordable than you might expect.
Unique Hardwood Styles
Handscraped Hardwood & Bamboo – a twist on traditional wood flooring. Handscraped offers a rustic, hand-crafted appearance. Strand bamboo is twice as hard as oak & comes in a variety of classic & one-of-a-kind styles.
The Best of the Best
Bellawood – attention to detail, a lifetime of beauty, a trend setter & the leader in scratch resistance!
Morning Star Bamboo flooring is one of the BEST bamboo floors on the market today! They’re produced from older reeds (at least 4 years old) to increase the hardness of the floor. With a floor like Dao Click Strand, you get a naturally beautiful floor that’s also ecologically friendly!
Strand bamboo like this is twice as hard as oak, the industry standard. It’s perfect for busy homes. REAL, eco-friendly bamboo that’s easily clicked together to install…and to top it all off a 30 year warranty!
“Even though it is a dark wood, it does not darken the rooms. We used it in an open concept (entire downstairs) and it looks so much bigger with one floor! It is beautiful. More beautiful than I expected. Easy to clean. You do notice small debris dropped, dust not so much.” – JR, Pennsylvania
“This floor was very easy to install. Used the Eco Silent Sound HD underlayment. That was very easy to use also. I bought this floor because of the beautiful look, but also the durability. I needed something that was going to hold up well. I have a dog and a couple of grandchildren. I took a sample of this floor before I bought it and beat it with a hammer as hard as I could. I could barely even make a noticeable dent. Other hardwoods I could tear up with a hammer. I was sold.” – Jim, Arkansas
“This bamboo product is an excellent choice for bedrooms and closets. Beautiful wood and hard enough to withstand heavy traffic and dogs.” – Sande, Texas
“This floor is absolutely beautiful! We had over 400 sf installed in the main living and dining area of our condo and we love it. Our small dog has not been able to scratch it and my high heels have not made one dent in this floor. I would highly recommend for high traffic areas, just be prepared to sweep this every day if it bothers you to see dust on the floor.” – Keliza22, North Carolina
We can’t find you a Valentine, but we CAN find your match! Your hardwood flooring match, that is. Keep these 3 tips in mind when you’re searching, and you’ll find the perfect floor for you in no time!
What’s the difference?
When shopping for flooring, something to consider is what TYPE of flooring you want to use. There’s more than just solid hardwood out there, and narrowing down your options can be tough. Here’s a little help:
When it comes to flooring, things aren’t black & white. There are a lot of colors and style to choose from! If you don’t know where to begin, try narrowing down your color shade. Looking for something light? Always dreamed of a dark floor? Want something right in the middle? Try narrowing down your color preference to light, medium or dark. You can do this easily on our website! Think of your home, your furniture, and your style.
Floors come in all shapes and sizes. Think about what you want your space to look like, and narrow down your options by thin/narrow, medium width, or wide plank! This can really change the look of your floor, and it’s all about what you like.

Dream Home St. James – African Mahogany: “This floor is absolutely fantastic!! I installed about 180 square feet almost 4 years ago, another 200 square feet about 3 years ago and another 350 square feet last week. The oldest (4 yrs old) still looks amazing. I was concerned that because of the high gloss finish every little scratch would be very noticeable, but that is not the case at all. It has held up perfectly and plan to keep it for many more years.”
Dream Home Ispiri – Mill River Walnut: “This flooring is stunning. Someone posted about it having too much color contrast. I don't find this to be the case. The look is beautiful. It looks like real hardwood and I'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference if this was in someone else's house and I saw it for the first time.”

Bellawood Select Cumaru: “We have installed this product throughout our whole first floor, i.e., master bedroom, living room and dining room. Also have it in the lower level. We absolutely love it and have had many positive comments.”
Casa de Colour Malaccan Cherry: “This is a replacement floor in my living room in an old house. It looks better than I expected and really brings out other features in the room making the space more elegant looking.”
Select Bamboo is on sale, and the deals WON’T LAST – some are this weekend ONLY!
Morning Star Golden Zebra Strand Bamboo: “The contractor said it was the best flooring he had ever put down in the past 6 years. Comments from friends and neighbors are all very positive. Been in place for two months and extremely happy so far.”
Morning Star Qing Xiamen Strand Bamboo: “Three months after the installation, it still looks beautiful! Due to a dark / red color, dust can be more visible. That's how it is, but way much easier to clean compared to carpet. No regrets at all and would do it again.”
ALL Lisbon Cork is ON SALE!
Lisbon Cork Medina: “I first used this product in 2006, to cover a bedroom, a bathroom and the laundry room floors. I loved its beauty, feel and durability so much that, 7 years later, when I renovated the kitchen and den, it was my first choice in flooring. The rest of my house has original hardwood flooring and the two products complement each other beautifully.”
Lisbon Cork Barcelos: “Easy to install for do-it-yourselfers, beautiful once in…”

It seems the days of hand crafting are over, but not at Lumber Liquidators! Each handscraped plank is sculpted for a rustic, antique appeal to bring old-world charm to your space. Don’t eliminate these floors based on budget, either. We have something for every customer, every space and every budget – hardwood, engineered, bamboo, laminate and vinyl!
“I love the feel and look of these floors. The hand scraped texture is great when walking on these floors barefoot. I also like the fact that scrapes are easy to cover up.”
This is NEW Marble Palace Maple!
“Whitewashing allows a bit of the wood grain and color to show through the finish. The result is a soft, hazy white layer that's a little bit rustic, but still spiffs up an old floor quite nicely, unifying the entire surface in whiteness.” – Apartment Therapy
Get the look with Oceanside Plank Laminate by Dream Home!
Not your grandmother’s vinyl! Vinyl Wood Plank is on the rise, and for a good reason. It’s highly durable, water-resistant and EASY to install – peel and stick, or click together and you’re done. Whether you like the realistic wood look or the appearance of tile, vinyl is perfect for all areas of the home.
“The flooring was extremely easy to install. It looks great as well! I did 200sqft by myself in about 8 hours. I couldn't be happier. It is great for pets, so easy to clean messes up. The best part is there's no gluing or underpayment that's required. Will be doing the rest of my house in this!!”
What do you think of Lake Fork Creek Cedar?
We’ve got the cork you need – and not for your bulletin board! Cork flooring brings you…
Comfort – cork is resilient which relieves stress in the back and legs when standing
Warmth – cork takes on the temperature of the room. Warm or cold, you’ll be comfy.
Quiet – cork is sound deadening and reduces noise between rooms and floors
Easy maintenance – just sweep and spot clean
“It's bad enough to have to get up in the morning, let alone get up and experience the icy shock of a cold floor. What you need is some warmth underfoot, a little cushion as you pad across the house. Enter cork. Resilient yet durable, stylish yet earthy, a natural cork floor can turn any cool room into a cozy haven. Cork is also a lot easier to install than traditional wood flooring.” – This Old House
Bamboo is a fast-growing grass that produces new shoots without the need for replanting – it’s naturally sustainable! Feel good about making an environmentally friendly flooring choice, and benefit from increase durability and a beautiful look!
“The flooring is wonderful. It went down well. I have no complaints or negatives about this type of flooring. I would recommend this product to anyone.”
