Lumber Liquidators, the largest specialty retailer of hardwood flooring in North America, has released its latest catalog showcasing the hottest trends and new floors of the fall home improvement season. It features an inspired selection of species, textures, colors and materials – including 60 new flooring choices such as the hot, new Bellawood line.
Robert M. Lynch, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: "We continually stay on top of design trends from around the world and then work directly with major mills to ensure the lowest prices possible on the highest quality flooring."
With over 340 floors, the styles highlighted in the catalog and displayed in stores showcase the latest, trendy looks, across several categories of flooring including hardwood, bamboo, laminate and more.
Looks That Get The Looks
Lumber Liquidators' diverse selection means they have a look that matches every taste. The new catalog features some specific trends for the upcoming year and fall season:
- Gray Tones – Gray styles in every tint, tone and shade are a popular choice for their contemporary appearance. The neutral color makes gray flooring versatile with any home decor and can be used as a base to create different moods with colorful design elements. The catalog offers several gray choices such as the new Bellawood Hues Natural Pewter Maple and the Casa de Colour Pewter Birch prefinished hardwood selections.
- Matte Finish – Low-gloss hardwood floors transformed home fashion in Europe and have increasingly been in high demand in the United States. Beyond the warm and inviting feel, the low-gloss appearance hides small scratches, dirt and fur, making it friendly for homes with kids and pets. The new Bellawood Matte prefinished hardwood collection, available only at Lumber Liquidators, features a proprietary, unique topcoat that boosts scratch, scuff and stain resistance, and provides customers with an oil or waxed look without the mess and constant maintenance normally associated with this style.
- Exotic Hardwood and Bamboo – Exotic flooring options, in both hardwood and bamboo, have emerged as a prevalent trend of the season due to their distinct, visually unique appearance. The exotic flooring varieties offer the beauty of hardwood in a nontraditional color and grain. There are a variety of exotic flooring options available including the Bellawood Brazilian Walnut prefinished hardwood and the Morning Star Antique Strand Handscraped Bamboo.
- Classic and Bold Looks – Classic and bold flooring choices are both increasingly trendy choices. For a more traditional look, floors such as Bellawood Hues Gunstock Oak Rustic hardwood offer a timeless, warm and inviting feel. To create a dramatic space that makes a bold statement, flooring with stark contrasts and dramatic graining can be installed. Flooring such as the Dream Home - Kensington Manor Fumed African Ironwood Laminate creates this stylish, unforgettable look.
The Ins and Outs of Hardwood
The catalog includes educational resources that empower readers. The interactive Designer Toolbox includes links to tools such as before-and-after photos, the Floor Finder App, how-to videos and more, to help homeowners determine the floor that's right for them. Furthermore, there are several Flooring 101 sections explaining topics that are vital to making a confident flooring purchase, and customers can find answers to the top design questions from home design and style guru, Ty Pennington.
