I had already updated the cabinets and counter tops in my kitchen but I waited on the floor because I wanted to lay ceramic tile. I laid about 200 sq ft of ceramic in my basement so I knew the labor involved to do the kitchen and was not looking forward to it. I came across this and saw some good reviews and pics so I gave it a try and was not disappointed. Followed the directions for cleaning as and did not use extra adhesive. It went down and stayed down well. Scored and broke easily and trimmed it with tin snips for precision cuts. I grouted it with Earth color grout and it looked great. Time will tell for durability with two young boys and 100 lb dog it won't take long to find out. Honestly I am very happy with how it looks. 130 sq ft in about six hours including grout is not too bad. Excuse the pics my tablet camera is not the best.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYmama Affordable, easy, and looks great!
These tiles look like the real thing but are much easier to install than ceramic tile. We installed this floor over existing sheet linoleum. We did a diamond pattern and have received many compliments on the floor. It is very important to clean your existing floor according to the product's recommendations for a great stick. If the floors are cleaned properly, they will have a strong bond. Learned this the hard way! Tiles are easy to cut with the score and snap method...just be sure to score on the top of the tile, not the back as it can peel the design off the tile...husband learned that the hard way! He scored and snapped one from the back and the design peeled off a little at the edge. For round cuts or more complex cuts than a straight cut, heat the tile up first with a hair dryer, then take strong or utility scissors to easily cut the tile. We will continue to use these tiles for the remaining sheet linoleum that is in our home. Love my new floor!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ash Bathroom went from blah to SPA!
Our small bathroom had that curling, old disgusting cheap sheet vinyl and I had enough of looking at it everyday. Husband and I found these peel & stick tiles that felt good, looked good and decided to install them. I was hesitant at first because of the word "peel & stick" but we bought some floor primer made for peel & stick tiles and BOOM---they are stuck like barnacles to the primered subfloor. We chose to grout the tiles in taupey-brown color and our bathroom looked AMAZING! We also love how warm it is to our feet in the mornings! Clean up is super-easy, just some mopping solution and looks new.
Only downside is cutting the tiles. I used tin snips to make my corner cuts (which I traced with wax paper) and you have to play around with some scrap tiles to learn how to make the best cut possible. Not really noticeable once installed, though. Easily scored for straight cuts with good blade.
LOVE IT AND WILL BE DOING OUR KITCHEN THIS WEEKEND WITH THIS LINE OF TILE!

I used this to update my Kitchen counter tops and back splash. I love it. its very sturdy I have cut on the counter itself and it has not marked the tile very easy to clean and way cheaper than granite tops. Everyone that has seen it loves it so here are a few pictures.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Woody Excellent look when used with grout!
I've installed many vinyl (and ceramic) tile floors over the past 30 years. This product's quality is superior!
This tile is thicker than most "standard" peel & stick vinyl tiles (they're the same thickness as commercial grade vinyl tiles), and I would rate them as "heavy duty".
I've recently installed this flooring with an approximately 1/8" - 3/16" gap between the tiles and then grouted the gaps with the suggested grout. It looks exactly like ceramic floor tile when completed! Friends cannot believe it is vinyl flooring, even after close inspection on their hands & knees, it is that realistic when grouted!
The tile is much warmer to the touch than ceramic tile, with the added benefit of not breaking every dish that is dropped on it, unlike ceramic tile.
If grouted joints are used, you will get the look of a ceramic tile floor with much less installation time and much less material needed (no cement board & thin-set grout)...at a much lower cost!
1. The tiles are undersized (11-3/4" square) to allow room for a grout joint, but you may place them tight against each other and not use any grout, if you wish.
2. Apply the suggested primer (for peel & stick vinyl tile) on the floor before installing the tiles...it will keep them tight to the floor for decades (this should be done for any peel & stick vinyl tile).
3. When cutting these tough tiles to shape with a utility knife you should pre-warm the area to be cut on the tile with a heat gun until the tile is "softer"...the tile will cut as easy as a hot knife through butter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robert58 Good tile, with a caveat
I installed this in my foyer, over old linoleum (probably with asbestos, so I didn't want to remove it). So far so good, but I will see how it behaves during the winter. If there is any change, I will report back.
First, the positives: this tiles is really good looking. Unless you get on your knees and inspect it, you will never know that it's not actual ceramic tile. It has a nice texture, and it is slightly "warmer" than ceramic or porcelain. Installation is relatively easy, if you follow the instructions. It calls for 1/8 spacers for the grout, but I used 3/16 without a problem. I am very pleased with the results, and I will install it in a small bathroom that currently has linoleum sheets. My original plan was to install actual ceramic tile, but after looking at the results in the foyer, it looks like the real deal.
Now, the warnings (not quite negatives). You need to make sure that the floor is spotless. Really, preparation is key here. I installed it over linoleum, but I cleaned it with a mixture of hot water, white vinegar, and baking soda. It can be installed over plywood or concrete as well, but the same thing applies: make sure it is absolutely clean. You might need to use a primer. If you don't have a clean surface, failure is the most likely outcome, and the adhesive is not strong enough to reapply it once you move it.
Another thing to note is that the pre-mixed grout that HD sells to use with the TrafficMaster does not have the same time frame to work with as regular grout. It dries really quickly and it has some sort of glue or some other substance that makes it difficult to remove. I have installed over 2000 sq.f. of actual ceramic tile, and the grout you mix yourself is a lot easier to work with. So my advice is to only do a few tiles at a time or use a different grout.
Lastly, be patient when cutting the tile - it's a bit trickier that it looks at first. Overall it is a good value, and I would recommend it, provided that you follow the instructions and are careful when you install it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reggie beautiful, looks like ceramic tile!
We put down 240 sq ft down of "Mamouth" pattern in our kitchen and it looks wonderful! It looks just like ceramic or stone! We didn't use the grout but the way the edges are beveled and are a bit lighter it looks like a thin grout line and looks great! Love it!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MimiAZ One Day Installation for any Do it yourself project
Working in a small commercial office space, trying to replace a nasty carpet. The subfloor was insanely out of level and our options were limited. We wanted something attractive and affordable. After reading reviews on Home Depot website, we headed down to the store and picked up 6 cases plus 10 extra squares. And we did grab the primer as recommended. The primer went on very easily and the floor installed very easily. We did have to go back for a large pair of snips as this material is really thick and hard to cut with ordinary scissors.
Overall, the floor looks great and is more comfortable to walk on than ordinary ceramic or porcelain tile. I'm so glad we thought to check the reviews because we were leaning toward a different product. I think this is amazing and kind of wish my whole house was covered in it, instead of hard tile.
Thanks, Home Depot!
