Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer Wouldn't recommend
I see the price has gone down. I paid $2.49 a box. It said it was scratch resistant, or they claimed it didn't scratch easy. NOT TRUE, within the first 24 hours my dogs had scratched it with ease. As did moving the couch into place. I am very angry that I spent as much as I did on this flooring THROUGHOUT my house and now, 2 years later, it needs to be replaced because the glue in spots isn't holding as well as bubbling in the top coat of the flooring.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer Update to August 24, 2012 review
I first reviewed this just over four years ago (see "Title" above) and want to reinforce that review. The flooring has held up even when our washing machine sprung a huge leak, dumping gallons of water onto the flooring and it took us about an hour to get all the water up and dry the vinyl with towels. Once the machine was removed, I lifted the flooring and the flooring underneath was dry! The wear on the vinyl at the back door (used for entry and exit almost exclusively) with use by adults and children, still looks about as good as when it was first installed. We are pleased with how it has held up for us. Looking to do another room when it is available again. So... I still recommend this flooring.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tony Really like this Allure "cork light" finish !!
I must say the hardest part is the prep....although I put in more prep than spec's said was necessary. I re-vamped my kitchen and the flooring is the glue that binds it all together. Including a new $800 dishwasher, floor, and complete paint my kitchen;cost is under $1900. NOW THAT'S THE POWER OF THE HOME DEPOT !!!!

This product is easily installed and durable. It is a very nice alternative to real cork

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saxy This is really good looking vinyl
I used this in two bathrooms in a mobile home on Lake Texoma a couple of years ago and liked the way it looked. We recently redid all of the floors in the trailer which included putting a layer of 1/2" plywood down so we had to tear it out. We liked it so much that we have redone both bathrooms and a closet in it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gmcc180 Easy to install, durable, looks great, great value
We installed in a basement home gym in 2010 because it was affordable, easy to install, and floated over the unfinished basement floor so no floor prep needed. It really warms up the room, it's comfortable to walk on, and it still looks great 4 years later. There could be dents under the heavy weight equipment (we haven't tried moving it to see), but if we ever do more it no problem as we bought extra and can just replace small sections as needed. Now we're planning to do the rest of the basement with this.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gramj334 Very happy 1 1/2 years later
I waited a over a year to write my review because I wanted to see how it held up, and how easy it was care for. Before choosing this product, I read the reviews, and we considered other products. We had spent 41/2 months refinishing the hardwood floors on the first floor of our 90 year old home. This product was to go next the hardwood floor. (We were very pleased with our hardwood floors, but exhausted.) We initially wanted the light bamboo Allure product, but decided that a fake wood grain, no matter how good, wood still look fake next to our now beautiful hardwood floors. So we chose the light cork. I am very happy with my floor. It has held up well. The only complaint I have is that we have an old cart with rubber wheels, and you look real close you can see scuff marks. They do come out. I was amazed that when I discovered a drip of white nail polish that had dried on the floor, it pealed right off! I also spilled some pink fabric paint on it. I wiped this up while still wet. It did not remove completely until I used an eraser sponge on it. But now, you cannot tell where it is. Overall the cork design camouflages the dirt, so I am not compelled to clean it just because of a few crumbs. On the other hand, when I do clean it (I use a swifter mop), it looks just like new! Yes, you can see the lines of the planks if you look closely, but they blend nicely and we usually have to point them out to visitors.
I gave it 4 stars because it was not as easy to install as we thought. Cutting off for the first start, and lack of good instructions. Cutting around items was probably easier than laminate, but we still couldn't get a perfect fit. But with quarter round, all looks good. My husband used an oscillating tool to cut under the door trims so we get a smooth fit there. We would choose this product again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2Brains4Corners LOVE THE CORK LOOK!
I love the look of cork floors and wanted it for my bathroom remodel BUT...cork won't work in a bathroom. My nephew who is a contractor had installed several of the vinyl plank floors and said I should look into them. So glad I did! I found Allure had some that look just like cork. They were easy to install and just look terrific! Warm and soft on the feet too. It's only been a few weeks so I don't know about the durability yet but so far I am loving them!
