Bought this product for living room and bathrooms. It is perfect! Exactly the color shown; hints of brown, grey, and cream. Goes with many furniture color tones. We hired an installer. It was pretty was for him. Looks and feels high end, but not the high price of hardwood or laminate.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WdstckDavid Very nice flooring, looks great.
This flooring is very nice, a step above the regular Allure. The score with utility knife and snap off to trim/cut this product does not work. I used a tin snip which seemed to work much better. Also tried using a jig saw to trim, but this produces tiny plastic dots that get stuck to the glue strips. Also, once placed and pressed into position, the flooring is very difficult to remove for re-alignment, you more often than not end up tearing some of the adhesive strip or backing off, and either have to repair or use a different strip to replace with. But overall, I am very satisfied with this purchase.

The flooring looks really nice and I love it. We are installing it ourselves and thought that it would be a bot easier because once you stick the pieces together, they are very hard to pull apart if you mess up. Looking back now we which we would have gotten the snap together but the price was much better for this flooring because we got it on sale. I love the fact that it is water proof because i have a dog and its not for clean up and not having to worry, is it going to mess up the flooring. We laid it flat on the concrete which make the flooring had like concrete but we were afraid to add a barrier and the flooring making noise or the barrier moving under the floor. We also laid the flooring at a 45 degree angle which I think makes it look much better. All together we are satisfied with the product for the price.

So far this flooring is beautiful and I've received tons of compliments on it. Not sure how it's going to do in the long run, since it's just been installed. My only complaint had to do with shipping. 4 boxes arrived with the ends of all the pieces broken off. I returned those and ordered more and one of those boxes arrived with broken ends. Otherwise, it installed quickly and easily and is perfect for my kitchen, laundry room and den areas.

We really loved this product for our bathroom floor, the installation was extremely easy, and the look is fantastic, you wouldn't know that it is Vinyl. I would reccommend ordering more than you need. We chose to stagger, like you would with a typical hardwood, and as a result needed much for than expected.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sobek Beautiful, deep colors make a beautiful floor.
I bought about 600 square feet worth of Brown Maple, Allure Plus vinyl plank flooring (ordered in-store) and installed it in our master bedroom, living room, and dining room. This color is not (currently) available in stores (not even SAMPLES!), so is a special order only item. The stores have just display sheets of it up. HD, a suggestion... samples for all of your flooring is a good idea. I shouldn't have to pay $9 for a 4" x 4" sample ($3 for the sample, $6 for shipping!?). That said, the Brown Maple really has a lot of beautiful color to it, including reds, grays, browns, and even subtle blues. As a result, it matches just about anything, and the light overall color (not done well in the photo above) really brightens a room. I strongly urge you to look at the real thing in the stores (the flip sheets in the flooring section) rather than rely on the on-line photos.
Honestly, the most difficult part of the job was prepping the floor, which in my case meant removal of carpet, padding, tack strips, and some minimal concrete smoothing.
After that, getting started is the hard part. The instructions make it out to be a bit easier than it is. Other than in bedrooms, most walls have entry and exit points that mean that the edge deviates by an inch or two. Rather than put down thin strips of flooring in those spaces, I decided to measure what I'd need to cut on earlier strips to make those deviations whole planks. I was nervous as it meant cutting whole planks along their lengths (as my first cuts no less!), but it went well. Scoring the planks to cut/break is quite easy. You don't have to press down with your knife very hard at all (though some pressure is required). If you're breaking off just small amounts (like an inch or so) and particularly lengthwise, have a pair of long pliers handy. You can use them to grab the part you're breaking off near the score mark and bend closer to the score, which works better than your fingers.
I've never installed a floor before, and I honestly don't believe a professional could have done a better job. It really looks flawless. My only complaint of any consequence is that I think they should make matching transition pieces (in my case a reducer to put between the tile and this new flooring). Instead, I'm going to try to mix stains and make my own... (not done yet) ...which I'm nervous about.
