The buildings HVAC should be turned on for at least two weeks before installation. Product should be stored in a dry area and stacked no more than 3 high with at least 4” of airflow around the cartons. Do not leave next to heat or cooling ducts. Leave the planks inside the cartons to insure the Grip Strip remains clean. Keep dust, dirt and foreign particles from contaminating the Grip Strip.
Following these steps is CRITICAL for adhesive performance during installation!
Failure to follow these guidelines will void the warranty."

Answer: 
let the shoe mold or baseboard cover the edge. Gravity holds it in place. It needs to be able to move a little. If it can't, it will buckle or the joints will pull apart. Leave the recommended gap at the edge of the floor and do not try to restrain it. The baseboard/shoe mold can touch, but should not be tight.

DON'T nail it in place! It's designed as a "floating" covering that actually stays in place with it's own weight. Yes, you can use the quarter round trim around it, but don't nail the planking down. Mine's been in place for quite awhile, and it doesn't exhibit any noticeable movement.

Unless you jam the material up against the wall plate (which is not recommended or necessary) there will always be some play ... nobody is that perfect or needs to be. This is a floating floor material that you will cover the edges with trim. I have not had any expansion or contraction in the installs I have use this with. Considering the material or glued edges I can't imagine any either.

Answer: 
Treat it the same as wood or laminate, or any other flooring covering. You have two differnt materials physically contacting each other, so it will expand and contract marginally. Giving it "breathing room" is the norm, so 1/8" of expansion room around the sides should be sufficient.

Hi JoeL,
The manufacturer recommends 1/8 inch minimum 1/4 inch preferred space around the perimeter of the room for expansion

Running the floor up to the wall may cause the flooring to buckle

I would say it would be ok in a small bath (no shower or tub). Make sure you get pressure on the floor so the sticky edges are sealed tight. Rent a vinyl floor roller for a day or two - you can hear the seams tightening as you roll.
The planks are not smooth - there is a very light texture to them. You can feel it but you can't really see it. It gives the floor a nice sheen, not a high slippery gloss. Read Less

I would say it would be as slippery as linoleum but not as bad as tile. I would also add that since your bathroom is small, installation of sheet vinyl would be tricky, this stuff is really easy to cut and handle. I plan to use it in my bathroom - lots of cutting around doorways, the toilet, vanity, tub, etc.......

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Allure Vinyl Plank Flooring (OAK) I have done alot of flooring but this new size of planks is pretty kool. Only thing is that you have to read the instructions about measuring the width of the room. Because you dont want to get to the other side and have a 1 or two inch cut all along the last wall. I bought 45 boxes of this stuff amd it took me couple of weeks (because im old and hurting) but I got it all thru the whole house. My original estimate of 45 boxes came in 1 box shy of having enough. Once it was in I waxed it with mop and glo and oh baby did it come out shinintg like a diamond. That was 3 months ago and it is still looking like brand new. I had to pull the first few pieces up because I did not let them set and get warm in the room I was working in. If you dont let them acclimate to the room temperature they will separate and leave a big gap. It is a super nice floor after all that work. April 10, 2016
