Create an Accent Wall With Floor Planks

Instantly spruce up any room with the addition of an eye-catching accent wall. While most accents walls utilize paint or wallpaper, go outside the box by using flooring planks to create texture and visual appeal. The experts at LL Flooring offer easy-to-follow instructions and tips to make installing an accent wall a breeze. They recommend using lightweight laminate flooring with no pre-attached padding or thinner tongue-and-groove planks for this project, avoiding any heavy flooring. The best part? Installation couldn't be easier with the use of double-sided flooring tape to attach the planks to the wall — no drill, hammer or glue needed.

Refresh the Mudroom With Resilient Flooring

With wet shoes, muddy paws and heavy foot traffic, the mudroom floor takes a beating. Ensure your floor is up for the challenge with LL Flooring's Duravana Hybrid Resilient Flooring line. The planks themselves are waterproof, and the flooring also features a "water-tight locking mechanism to provide double protection from everyday spills and accidents." In addition to spills, these planks can withstand a serious beating. LL Flooring says they're 50 percent more wear-resistant than premium vinyl and (pet owners, this one's for you!) scratch resistant.

Update the Kitchen With Butcher Block

Butcher block — made from strips of wood bonded together — is a versatile material ideal for the kitchen. With the proper sealing, cooks can chop and prepare meals directly on the countertop surface. A warm alternative to cool stone, butcher block can also be a budget-friendly option for countertop renovation projects. Since kitchen islands usually require less countertop material, adding butcher block to the island is a great weekend project to bring warmth and style to your space. LL Flooring offers a wide selection of butcher block island tops, countertops and backsplashes available in multiple species such as oak, teak, walnut, cherry, maple and more.

Install Waterproof Playroom Flooring

Spilled juices are a problem of the past with LL Flooring's new waterproof laminate flooring. The planks feature a water-tight locking system that holds liquids on the surface which allows for easy cleanup and peace of mind when spills and accidents happen — ideal flooring for a playroom or kids' bedroom. With an easy click installation, installing new flooring is a project you can actually do in a weekend now. Plus, with a plethora of wood-like hues to choose from, there's a waterproof laminate to fit any design style — all backed by a lifetime warranty.

Revamp the Bathroom With Stone-Look Tile

If you've been looking for a sign to upgrade your bathroom flooring, this is it. Create your own serene oasis with trendy stone-look porcelain tile. Here, crisp white tiles pair with ribbons of heather gray to mimic ever-popular marble without the hefty price tag. The tiles boast a waterproof design and are a versatile flooring option for not only the bathroom but also the kitchen, living room or patio areas. It can also be installed on walls if you'd like to put it in your shower, since it is, of course, waterproof.
