We have a very large kitchen - 50' x 30' - part eat in and the other the cooking area, and installed this brand/pattern in the cooking area part. This is the 4th room we've used this in and if it holds up as well as in the other 3 rooms I'll be happy, happy, happy! Already have this in our large master bathroom, 2nd bathroom and laundry/mud room and so far it's held up well even with a ton of abuse. The mud room is used 90% of the time as the entrance into the house - kids, grandkids, pets, visitors - muddy, wet and snowy boots and feet, work boots with stones in the treads and NO problems! Just over 2 yrs. ago we had a slow water leak from under the wash machine that we only discovered after I found a large water puddle coming out from under it - must have dripped for days. Washer was moved and repaired and we waited to see the end results to the floor and let me say that the entire floor (over 2 yrs. later) still looks as good as when installed, and NO pieces had to be replaced.
Hubby installed with very slight difficulty in only one area. We have a large island that is close to a row of cabinets and installing the last row under the cabinet overhang to abut with the kick plate was a little hard but doable.
FYI - I dropped a VERY large, Very heavy cast iron skillet and did end up with a tiny indent/scratch which is only noticeable to me because I know it's there. Because of the great stone like texture; grooves and stone type indents; of this floor it if you touch that spot it just feels like the stone texture itself; there is no color difference at the indent. If this were a real tile it would have shattered. All in all I am extremely happy with this product and EVERYONE that sees it can't get over the fact it's not real stone.

This floor really looks good. Panels go together fairly easily.

Easy to install, but hard to bend. It's thick, not very bendable. Looks great. Better then ripping out the old tile. And...I got it on sale at the overstock special price. Will install it in my other bathroom ASAP.

Ok, so this wasn't my first attempt and past experience made things move pretty well. First I admit that I laid this over a combination surface of new flooring 23/32nds. and carpet glue in another area. The foam base layer on this produce is pretty forgiving on minimal surface irregularities. First step is make sure all surfaces are clean!! Next, eat two bowls of Wheaties and an extra vitamin. I made all my measurements and markings are on the back (foam side) and cut accordingly. Using a circular saw on the smooth finished side will leave a poor, chipped finish... I do not recommend unless all cuts will fall under the base-board and not be seen. Just make sure you follow the enclosed, very tiny print instructions... that without my bi-focals looks exactly like the second translation in Spanish. It took me about 11 hours to put down almost 500 sq. ft. Not something I would want to do regularly, but it did turn out nice enough that I can be proud of the outcome. Oh! The color has more grey than I expected but I (and family) can live with it. Too bad they don't send accurate samples before the purchase!!

I needed a good product to install in the laundry room. I was lucky that My daughter purchased a box that she was going to use in her bathroom and she gave it to me.I looked at the quality and I was impressed so I ordered three more boxes fro Home Depot. It's a shame that depont stopped making it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lewie Nice looking floor. Easy installation.
This is a good looking floor. I like the fact that different stones have different textures. The surface also looks like it will be very durable. I read the installation instructions and had my doubts about them. I tried it the way they said to do it, and I was surprised at how easy it went together. I think it would be difficult to install if you have door frames to work under, but my install, in a new room without door trims in yet, was easy. The only negative is that I can see some of the seams. The ones in grout lines are pretty invisible, but some go across stones and are visible. It's not a big deal though. Overall, I am very satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mvigneau Great Product. Similar to Dupont RealTouch
I purchased 120sq ft of the Dupont RealTouch about 8 months ago for my mudroom and loved it. Very durable, easy to install and great to look at. The difference between Dupont and Innovations is the finish. This is more of a matte finish where-as the Dupont was more high gloss.
I have 4 children and this floor is super durable. It hasn't delaminated or bubbled from water or boots or sand or anything. Looks as good as the day I installed it.
The important thing to consider when installing it is to make sure that you keep the piece elevated at the angle to get the tongue and groove to meet. If you try to match the tongue and groove together on the same plane, it will not connect. I found it easier to install the narrow side first (width) and then lift up long side to insert that into the next piece.
I had 340 sq ft of floor to install and used 400 sq ft in the install. I made a couple of mistakes, but then couldn't reuse the piece.
I would suggest more than the recommended 10% waste...probably 20%.
