2020 Ugly Floor Contest Winner – Before and After


BEFORE - Ugly Floor Contest 2020

Entry Title: Ugly duckling yellow – become a swan!

Photo Caption: When we moved into our house in 1994, we used Creative Carpet to lay carpet in our bedrooms and living room but had kids before we could finish other projects, like the kitchen. The kids are leaving, so it's time to spend our money on ourselves again.

Congratulations again, Cindy Laitar of New Lenox, Illinois. She was the winner of new flooring worth $1000 in Creative Carpet & Flooring’s ‘2020 Ugly Floor Contest’! Her photo entry (above) received 629 votes out of 30 ugly floor photo entries and was crowned the winner! Again, we want to congratulate all the contest entries; we received many outstanding photos. Our only regret was that there can only be one winner. Everyone who entered received a $100 gift voucher to Creative Carpet & Flooring.


AFTER - Ugly Floor Contest 2020

"This customer came in around February of 2020 and bought carpet for most of her house. Cindy and her husband knew we did an ugly floor contest every year in August, so they had me measure their kitchen but said they were holding off on that part of the job. They had hoped to win the 2020 Ugly Floor Contest to help them pay for it. Cindy and her husband were going to buy it anyway but felt their existing floor was ugly enough to win, so they waited... then they won! Can you believe it? I was more excited than they were when they told me. I did not know they had entered the contest as some time had passed since they bought their carpet, so I was super shocked when they pulled out the winning coupon on me. How funny is that, and when does that ever happen? SO happy for them!" ~Brian Berson, Flooring Consultant - Creative Carpet & Flooring

Thanks again to everyone who participated and helped make this contest a success! Stay tuned for another Ugly Floor Contest in August of 2021!
