“I have had the Brazilian Koa installed in my living room and dining room for about 3 months - both look amazing. I have 4 children and a dog (Jack Russell) and so far the flooring has held up very nicely. There are some small scratches, which should be expected with any wood floor, however they just add to the character of the floor. All of the existing woodwork in my house is oak (floor/crown molding, windows, cabinets, fireplace, etc) and I was very concerned how wood flooring would look. The Brazilian Koa was PERFECT because it has so many colors that all of the existing woodwork and furniture blend together. I am very pleased with my purchase!”
“I had this floor professionally installed in dining room, living room, hallways and master bedroom. They did it all in two days with very little defected product. It is very beautiful and those who see it comment on how nice it looks. Warm tones that match nicely with the colors of furniture in the house...Makes are house look brand new. Would recommend this product for its beauty, but you must love lots color variation or you wouldn't like it. Can't wait to see how it changes as it darkens up.”
“Everything about my experience with this product and Lumber Liquidators was perfect! The wood was available and in stock for immediate pickup and there was a great supply of trim parts. If you have the proper tools to do the job and general construction ability the installation is very easy and enjoyable. I installed 400 square feet of this product in one weekend with help only from my wife and daughters. I used a nailer, mitre saw, table saw, undercut saw and jig saw to do this job. THE FLOOR IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!”
“We had about 1200 sq. ft. of the Brazilian Koa Select 3/4" x 3-1/4" installed in our entry, office, hallways, great room, kitchen and dining room, our home is an open floor plan. We love the rich color of the floor, at first is is real light, but within a few weeks you can see it change to a much richer deeper red/orange/brown tones. Everyone, including our installer says it looks real high end and expensive. I sell homes for a living and I have to say, that I have seen a ton of wood floors over the years and this is by far my favorite. The look is so unique and very high end, which is what we were going for. The installer said it was easy to work with and went together very well.”

“Bought this flooring 4 years ago and still loving it. It looks brand new just like the day we bought it. It's so durable and beautiful. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.”
“This is a top quality product and looks absolutely beautiful in the master bedroom. I'll be putting the same product in the second bedroom and the hallway as well. You can't go wrong with a 5 x 3/4 solid hardwood product and when it's Brazilian Cherry it truly takes it over the top.”
“This is HARD work, but worth it. I am happy that we chose the solid wood. The floor is beautiful. I've been waiting for this for a long time... something that we couldn't have afforded to have installed by someone else. Outstanding product.”
“The finish is super-hard. We've accidentally dropped things on it, and no dent, no scratch, finish undamaged! This characteristic means that it's very hard to drive nails into, so don't even think about installing it by hand! The color does change with exposure to light, but to my eye, to an EVEN MORE PLEASING color that improves by the month.”

“My brother installed this floor in his home 10 years ago, it was my dream floor finally came true. We watched the price and Lumber Liquidators had a fablous deal we couldn't pass up. After a long wait, we replaced the carpeting in our family room, kitchen, hallway and office. What a difference this floor makes and it's absolutely beautiful. You won't be disappointed. We choose to have this professionally installed by Lumber Liquidators (well worth the price to have installed professionally). You won't regret the decision to purchase.”
“We replaced the carpet in our living room, the hall and the three
bedrooms with the Brazilian
Koa. The hardwoods give our house that undated look we were going for and makes everything else look so much better too. Will never have carpet again.”
“We get nothing but "oooos" and "aahhhs" when people see the floor for the first time. It's been down for over a year and half now and has darkened to a rich orange/brown glow. Yes, it literally glows! Hardwood is great if you have allergy sufferers in the house--once it's clean, it's clean! Now, this is wood, so no matter how hard it is on the Jenka scale, it will scratch. We have two kids and 4 pugs and there are scratches, but it just adds to the overall character. We did our entire downstairs and the upstairs hallway with this. We were originally going to get Brazilian Cherry, but after seeing how pink it got on the floor of our LL showroom, we didn't like it, but then my wife saw the Tigerwood--and it was love at first sight! Best choice we ever made.”
“WE installed this floor in our great room to replace carpet. We love the richness and deep color. It was not as hard to install as we thought it would be. It was our first time installing hardwood floors. Easy to clean with a dust mop. Would recommend this floor if you want to have a floor that is rich and elegant.”

Multiple contractors told Rocky and Angie they were “nuts” for thinking their budget would allow them to install hardwood flooring in their Elizabethtown, PA home. They had a price to stick to and looked around before finding Bellawood Select Ash at Lumber Liquidators.
Before making a decision they used our Room Designer to get a better idea of how the floor would look with the green walls and white cabinets in their kitchen!
“Our main issue was price,” Angie says. By using Lumber Liquidators, they were able to double the square footage of their order and do the kitchen and living room; something Rocky says would not have been possible elsewhere! Angie and Rocky chose Bellawood because of the 100 year warranty and the online reviews, an easy way to see what real customers think of Select Ash in their homes.
Angie says, “It’s really been super easy to clean. I actually don’t have to clean it as much as I had to do my vinyl floor. Even if something sticky gets on I don’t feel it as much.”
The couple says the durability of the floor is even better than the vinyl they previously had in the kitchen. Two children, dropped utensils, sticky food and spills are not a problem with Bellawood Select Ash. No more running for the steam cleaner or jumping on towels to clean up spills!
“We love our house, we take pride in our house, and we’re gonna be here for the rest of our lives, so it’s like, you know what if we’re gonna do it, let’s either do it right or let’s wait. And because of the price we got at Lumber Liquidators it’s like, we can do it right and we’ll never have to worry about flooring again.”

“flooring was easy to install with very little waste. i am ordering more for my other bedroom.”
“We bought this floor for our entry hall and dining room and
loved it so much we also put it in our living room and bedroom hallways. (I say
'we', but it was really just me. My husband kept the kids away while I worked.
It is SUPER easy to install. No, really, a
beginner could do it. Super easy! The
only real tool you need is a jigsaw and you are good to go. Just make sure your subfloors are level
before starting or you'll get hollow sounds when you walk on those spots.”
“We installed this flooring in our living room four months ago and it looks absolutely beautiful. I waited a few months to review because I wanted to see how it held up and how much effort it is to keep the flooring looking good. The flooring has not scratched at all, however, we do not have pets or young children. I vaccuum regularly with a Shark handheld vaccuum cleaner that does not have a beater bar and once a week I use the Bellawood cleaner. The floors look exactly the same as day one. I am very happy with this purchase.”
“I previously installed Richmond Plank in our living room, foyer, & dining room. We decided to take it into 2 spare bedrooms as the adjacent hallway had this flooring too. We love the way it looks, and it is very easy to maintain. Both bedrooms look fantastic. The living room and foyer were installed in Summer 2008, and it looks as good as the day I installed it. Excellent product.”

Considering some new laminate thanks to your coupon? You may think the thicker the laminate, the better, and the longer the warranty the longer it will last! That isn’t always the case, though. So how do you know which laminate will last in your home (or commercial space)? Luckily, the European Producers of Laminate Flooring (EPLF) developed the Abrasion Rating System to give us a way of determining durability and recommended usage level of different laminate floors. The common term used to denote the durability level of laminate flooring is the Abrasion Criteria or “AC” rating.
So, what exactly do AC ratings tell us? They represent a laminate’s resistance to abrasion, impact, stains and cigarette burns. AC ratings also indicate that the product has been tested for the effects of furniture legs, castors, and swelling along its edges. When a laminate flooring product has a rating, then it has passed all of the test criteria. Failing just one test will disqualify a product.
The AC rating levels are designated AC1 through AC5, each reflecting the product’s application and durability.
Application is divided into two groups: residential and commercial.
Each application is then divided by traffic intensity level: moderate, general or heavy.
Below is a breakdown of AC ratings. The left picture will be either a house (representing residential use) or a building (for commercial use). The picture to the right will show one, two or three people, depicting the traffic intensity level of moderate (1), general (2) or heavy (3).
An AC3 for residential use is perfectly adequate. Typically the higher the laminate flooring rating, the higher the price may be.
AC4 and AC5 products could also be used in all residential areas, but in some cases the course surface texture may be too rough for bare feet. In fact, there have been reports of people wearing holes in their socks from laminate with AC ratings higher than AC3! Ouch!
AC ratings allow you to compare products as you shop for the perfect laminate. If you’re tempted by some very cheap laminate flooring, be cautious! It might not have any type of AC rating, which indicates it failed to meet the minimum industry requirements. You can find the AC rating of Lumber Liquidators’ laminates by going to the product page and clicking on the “Specs” tab.
See you soon with your coupon for 12mm laminate flooring, found at lumberliquidators.com!
Laminate flooring is perfect for do-it-yourselfers because it’s easy to install! Here’s a quick guide to getting started with installing your new laminate floors.
Before you start:
Lay the flooring flat and leave it in the room it will be installed in to acclimate for at least 48 hours.
Clean the subfloor thoroughly, make sure it is completely level, and remove base moldings.
If installing over concrete, be sure it is completely cured before beginning the installation.
Next, put down a vapor or moisture barrier. Use plastic, vapor paper or underlayment, depending on the subfloor and level of your home (below grade, on grade, above grade). Consult a professional to determine which is best for your home!
Remember to account for door jambs. Place a piece of flooring against each door jamb, mark it, and then cut it so the flooring fits snuggly under the door jamb. This will give you a great professional look.
Now you’re ready to begin installation!
Start with the longest wall and place ½" or ¼" spacers along the wall with the first row of boards pressed firmly against them. Spacers create expansion gaps which allow the flooring to expand and contract naturally. The gaps will be covered by base molding.
For each row after the first, offset joints between six to eight inches.
Simply click the flooring together!
When you reach the last row, a plank or two might need trimming to fit. Remember to maintain expansion gaps across every edge of the room.
Finally, install base molding to cover gaps and any threshold molding to transition between rooms!
For detailed instructions, check the Flooring 101 guide.

“Our old flooring was disgusting, and bad, and nasty, and embarrassing and we knew that wood just makes the room look warm, and natural, and inviting.” With the help of her family, Nicole from Colorado installed Glacier Peak Poplar Laminate in her kitchen. The product is from the Kensington Manor line by Dream Home, and is unique because of the handscraped texture you won’t find with many other laminates. Check out Nicole’s journey to an upgraded home:
In a home with two cats and two dogs, Nicole wanted something durable and easy to clean! We’re happy she ended up at Lumber Liquidators, but her journey didn’t begin there. Before settling on Glacier Peak Poplar, she shopped around at two big box stores that would have busted her budget. She didn’t pick out top-of-the-line flooring, and still couldn’t find something within the budget. Another issue? She was made to believe a DIY installation wasn’t possible.
At Lumber Liquidators, she found an amazing, “off the charts” selection and ended up with the perfect floor within the budget. “I felt completely confident with all of the information that he was able to give us.” Eric at her local store gave detailed DIY installation instructions, including transition pieces to connect an adjoining room with different flooring.
“The installation process was a lot easier than we expected. We finished everything in just one day, and once we got the first couple pieces down it just flowed all the way through the kitchen”
Now, Nicole enjoys the handscraped texture that feels great under bare feet. It is easy to keep clean, (especially with the cleaning kit she purchased) so there are no worries about what her four rescue animals might leave behind.
“There’s a lot of pride with us just having this in our home and then by having our family help install it, it really gave everyone a sense of pride.”

New flooring is a big investment. Hardwood, bamboo, cork, laminate, vinyl…what’s the difference? Finding the right product can be tough, so here is a basic guide to help you choose the right floor for you and your family!
Solid Hardwood- milled from solid wood and comes unfinished (apply your own stain) or prefinished (one less step, easier installation).
Engineered Hardwood- real hardwood layers with a plywood fiberboard backing. Extremely stable, which means it can take on wood’s natural movement in high-moisture areas.
"Hardwood flooring is renowned for its natural beauty and durability. Its classic good looks harmonize with any architectural theme or interior design, and it’s an especially good choice to create visual room-to-room continuity for homes with open floor plans." (HGTV Flooring Guide)
"Bamboo is tough and durable. Because it comes from plants that are easy to grow and regenerate quickly, bamboo is considered a sustainable material and an environmentally friendly flooring choice." (HGTV Flooring Guide)
Bamboo produces new shoots without the need for replanting, and gives you a stunning, unique look. For increase durability, try strand bamboo. It’s twice as hard as oak, making it an optimal choice for busy homes. It stands up to the wear and tear of foot traffic, active kids and even pets.
Cork is produced by peeling away bark without destroying the tree.
"Cork has a warm, natural appearance and is comfortable underfoot." (HGTV Flooring Guide)
Plus, the benefits are awesome! Cork is resilient which relieves stress in the back and legs when standing. Spend a lot of time in the kitchen? Cork might be right for you! It also takes on the temperature of the room, so it’s warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It is great for sound deadening, reducing sound between rooms and floors. Maintenance is simple. Just sweep and spot clean!
Laminate is a fiber core board with a photo on top. It’s easy to install, comes in array of colors and varies in thickness. You can even get that handscraped, rustic look. It’s very scratch resistant, which is great for those who are tough on floors.
"Low-maintenance laminate flooring offers an enormous variety of styles, colors and patterns." (HGTV Flooring Guide)
Vinyl has a natural looking grain, is extremely water-resistant, and easy to install! Simply peel and stick or click-together and you’re done.
"Vinyl tiles…are called resilient flooring – they’re flexible and slightly soft underfoot. They’re tough, durable and virtually maintenance-free. Vinyl comes in an array of colors and patterns at relatively modest cost." (HGTV Flooring Guide)
Keep your style and preferences in mind when choosing flooring. Some other things to consider are color, width, texture, species and grade. What do you like?
Color: light, medium, dark
Width: 2¼”, 3 ¼”, 5”
For larger rooms, some advise that you use a wider plank, and for a smaller room, a narrower plank. Another consideration is fixed-width or variable plank width for a more dramatic appearance. It’s all about what you like!
Texture: smooth, handscraped
Handscraped or distressed selections are available for almost every type of floor (except cork).
Species: tree type
Pattern, lines, swirls, overall character and grain…everyone’s taste varies. Australian Cypress Hardwood has a variety of tones with exquisite dark knots for a rustic feel. Qing Spyder Strand Bamboo is simple and dark. What’s your style?
Grade: Select, Natural, Rustic
Select- most uniform plank, smallest knots, longest average length
Natural- some color variation, mineral coloring, small pin knots
Rustic- large knots, most color variation

Does LL rent tools?
We have an extensive line of tools to provide one-stop shopping for all your flooring needs, but no tools are offered as rentals. Our prices are so low you may find purchasing a better value compared to rental! Keep this in mind when considering your options. Purchasing will allow you to take your time with installation without trying to meet a rental return deadline.
Do your floors scratch and dent?
The hardness of wood reflects its durability and the ratings are established using the Janka hardness test. This testing represents the resistance of wood to dents or marring. Northern Red Oak is the species all others are compared with and if the number is higher, this denotes a harder wood. These values are set to provide consumers a relative standard as to durability and a workability comparison between species. Therefore, the hardness ratings on a particular species should be viewed as merely a helpful guide for selecting dense products with natural variations to be expected even within a species or when comparing a new floor with an existing floor of the same species.
With the exception of the finish applications, the manufacturing process for preparing hardwood floors are generally the same for most all wood floor manufactures; After harvesting the wood it is kiln-dried to an ideal moisture content of 6-9 %, then the milling of the tongue and groove begins, next the finishes can be applied. Some oily exotic species like Walnut, Teaks and Blood Wood have an additional primer or isolator coat applied before the finish coats. Once the finished flooring leaves our control it is our desire that the flooring provides years of good service and receives the best customer/installer installation and maintenance.
Interestingly, because of cell structure, all wood products can scratch and dent. Scratches and denting of installed flooring is considered “site or installation related” beyond a manufacture's ability to control and is therefore not covered by any manufacturer's warranty. It should be noted that there is no relationship between species hardness and the finish scratching. Although top finishes are scratch resistant, no claim is made of our finishes as being “scratch proof”. In reality, urethane finishes are applied as a functional safety mechanism designed to take limited surface abuse thereby protecting your investment … the wood underneath.
