When it comes to successful DIY flooring installation and inspiration, good ideas are meant to be repeated! To kick off the new year in style, we’re excited to revisit some of the most impressive ProCore Flooring installations of 2021! Each project comes from a social media superstar who is a regular property owner with the same concerns and questions as everyone else. Even if you are a first-time DIYer, a ProCore luxury vinyl flooring installation is well within reach, and these examples are sure to provide lots of inspiration and tips for your reno journey ahead in 2022!
- STEFANA SILBER – Stefana Silber couldn’t wait for her basement renovation to be completed and considered her beautiful ProCore Pro LVP floors in Elizabeth Oak to be the pièce de resistance! The trendy blonde-toned flooring not only looks and feels like real wood, its ‘waterproof’ quality exceeded her expectations and gave her the advantage of installing in a below-grade location over a concrete slab (with a moisture barrier in place). It even survived a flood later in the year! In her flooring installation video, Stefana demonstrates just how DIY-friendly ProCore’s luxury vinyl planks are, requiring only a utility knife and rubber mallet to secure them in place. By staggering plank sizes at the start of each row and varying plank patterns as they are laid down, the flow of the flooring looked organic and brightened up this modern, moody space. The end result was most definitely one for the books and continues to be a favorite of our social followers to date!
- BLESS’ER HOUSE – Married DIYers Robert and Lauren love home renovations and decorating adventures with their favorite thrifting finds. Last spring, they melted our hearts and gifted a rec-room makeover to their neighbors. The Carney family consists of two Air Force veterans and together, they share nine kids. In the process of this reno, old carpet was ripped up and the search for durable, waterproof, scratch-resistant, stain-resistant, DIY-friendly, and budget-friendly floors began. ProCore luxury vinyl plank in Meadow Oak was selected as the perfect classic brown floor with hand-scraped texture for realistic wood appeal, that can also withstand the heavy foot traffic that is sure to come with having such a large family. From supplies and planning to step-by-step install directions and layout tips, Robert and Lauren provide their readers with tons of DIY expertise and motivation for laying LVP! The final reveal of the Carney rec room is nothing short of breathtaking and the stunning photos speak for themselves.
- LOLLY JANE – Identical twin sisters Kelli and Kristi are moms, full-time home décor bloggers, avid thrifters, and DIY enthusiasts. For their Lolly Jane readers, the sisters weigh the pros and cons of choosing Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring for household renovations- and the pros far outweigh the cons! In fact, the dynamic duo love ProCore Flooring LVP so much that they installed it in three homes over the past year! They love that LVP floors look like authentic hardwood but are waterproof and kid/pet-friendly. Using ProCore’s helpful online visualizer to see which color, finish, and layout would suit their home the best, Kelli and Kristi chose blonde-toned favorites English Grove Oak and Elizabeth Oak, respectively, for their flooring installations. Along with helpful installation steps, Lolly Jane readers were treated to Kelli’s spectacular final Family Room Makeover Reveal and Kristi’s gorgeous dining area (have you seen that pantry?!) Job well done ladies!
- CRAZY LIFE WITH LITTLES – As a wife and mother of two, Jacki aimed to quickly renovate her home’s open concept kitchen and living room area without displacing the spaces for a long amount of time. After creating a project inspiration board, Jackie landed on ProCore Plus luxury vinyl plank in Warm Honey Oak to update the flooring thanks to the durability, cost, and waterproof performance that allowed her to have seamless flooring throughout each of the rooms without using transitions or thresholds. The rich but classic brown and blonde toned mix was a great fit for her family with kids and pets, ideal for making dust and pet hair less visible. With her list of tools, installation steps, and answers to FAQs from her readers, Jacki proves that DIY flooring can be done successfully when you take the time to do it right!
