Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SarahC Beautiful, high quality flooring for a great price
This flooring was a lot cheaper than most of the other options we were looking at, so we were a little worried about the quality. When it arrived, however, it was beautiful and easy to install. It fit perfectly in our bathroom, and looks like real bamboo flooring. It was easy to trim the pieces around the tub and toilet. A great alternative to real bamboo in a wet place (bathroom, kitchen, etc.) Highly recommended!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ppww Terrible product and homedepot is not standing behind their product
Easy to install,and we still have the professional to do it for us. However, the biggest flaw is the adhesive on this material. My friend had other texture,but works fine. There is some problem with this bamboo. The adhesive is weak and the floor is peeling up in many places even though it was well conditioned. We were referred to the manufacture company from homedepot.
The company sent the independent floor inspector to check the condition under the floor, and decided there is nothing wrong but the material. The manufacture compensate the material 100%, however, neither them or homedepot is willing to pay for the labor, because,they said it is a do it yourself product. I won't recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYHomeowner 6 in. x 36 in. Bamboo Light Resilient Vinyl Plank Flooring Finished Product
For $150, I installed the bamboo light plank in a 6' x 17' walk-in closet. I have only 2 planks left over so 3 boxes did the job without a lot of waste. It looks great, but just be sure to get the gaps between planks as close as possible. Otherwise, it won't look as authentic. In gaps that were spaced a bit further apart, I used a filler like wood patch to fill in the cracks and that made a major difference in the overall look.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tundraboomer Just the ticket for the bathroom
We have a light bamboo laminate flooring in most of the house but like many homes built in the 90s, our master bath was carpeted and I never had the laminate installed because I was worried about it holding up to the moisture. When I finally got sick of the carpet in there, and it was time to carpet the master anyway, I decided to look for a resilient flooring similar to the laminate in most of the rest of the house.
This Allure flooring was a decent match so I read up on it and decided to give it a whirl.
So far, so good. It installed pretty easily, it looks good, repels water just fine, and the smell is diminishing more very day. Here is what I learned about this stuff when I installed it.
1. The long planks are less forgiving than vinyl tiles (for example) when you discover your walls are neither square nor true. Check everything carefully and come up with a plan to compensate for any small gaps ahead of time. Once you start sticking the planks down, it's hard to make adjustments even though this is a floating floor.
2. Buy a vinyl tile roller and use it.
3. Make sure your subfloor is flat and smooth. Unlike floating laminate floors that ride on a thin layer of foam underlay, this sits right on the subfloor. If it has any defects or is wavy, it will show. My subfloor was pretty rough so I put down a 1/4-inch sanded plywood overlay on top of the rough plywood subfloor.
4. It scores and snaps very easily but I used a vinyl tile cutter for most of the cuts which makes everything go faster and keeps everything square.
5. The smell is kind of nasty at first. For lack of a better description, it smells like a warehouse full of bicycle tires. But it does diminish over time.
Overall, I'm happy with Allure so far.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by tippy302 Looks terrible. Wavy.
This product looks terrible and is not well made. Very cheap construction. See my photos. Looks good when you install it, then weeks later the adhesive will fail.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michele Love that flooring! Easy care, waterproof
I mostly love the fact that since it's waterproof vinyl, there won't be any water damaged floor to replace in cases such as toilet overflow (kid tries to flush teddy bear) or overflow from dishwasher, sink or shower stall. Or from storm leaks. No worries, mon!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LeighC26 I love this floor. Great buy!
Please take into account that most people who put reviews have something negative to say. I was a little worried about this product because of some of the negative reviews. However, I chose to believe that a big company like Home Depot would not continue to sell a product that was not profitable and was getting a lot of complaints. I'm glad I believed! This is a great floor!
We have two 50lb dogs and were worried about the floor showing scuffs and scratches. So, far we have had no complaints about this. It is August and we installed the floor in February. They run through the kitchen all the time. It is a little slippery for them, but they have adjusted.
I read one review that complained about glue seeping from the seam after installation. I must say, that is partially true. With installation, there are times that you touch the tops of other planks with the glue from another. This was actually very minor. The day after installation, I quickly went over the glue with some vinyl floor cleaner and a scrub sponge. It very easily came off and I did that for a couple of days when a few new spots would appear. Since then, It has been no problem!
I put my flooring in my kitchen, so installation was a bit more complicated because I had 6 doorways and two closets off my kitchen and back hall. I did have to reverse direction once to do the area by the sink. I had forgotten to order the reverse strips(which I highly reccomend) and made reverse strips myself out of extra pieces. Still, it turned out perfect.
Another complaint I saw was about gaps between the planks. Yes, some of the planks did not lie completely flush. There are very small dark lines between some of the planks. I happen to like this. I think it makes it look even more like real wood flooring.
In 6 months, I have had no issues with any of the flooring coming up or separating. I did rent a 100 pound floor roller as suggested by some other reviews. This may have helped.
There was real hardwood bamboo flooring on sale for the same price per sq foot when I bought the Allure flooring. I chose it because it would go over my existing floor with no preparation and I would not have problems with changes in floor height to connecting rooms. I'm VERY happy with this product!
