Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FirstHomeDIYer Beautiful flooring
This floor is beautiful, warm, and easy to install (although we do have previous experience installing Allure cherry vinyl planks). I personally think that this flooring is easier to install than the wood look vinyl planks (mostly due to the larger size). I have two shih-tzu mixes and they do slide all over the floor. Since we installed this in the entryway/mudroom, kitchen and bathroom, I had to put some non-slip mats down on the 3 stairs in the entryway. I think that the floor is very resistant - we have had no problems with our dogs nails on the cherry plank flooring (installed in our office and spare bedroom) and they do not seem to be scratching up this travertine floor either. Once a week I run our small Dirt Devil vacuum over the floor, and sponge mop it. Overall, I really enjoy Allure vinyl plank flooring and would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a resistant, yet beautiful floor.

We used this flooring product product in our master bathroom and we're really happy with it.
I have installed high pressure laminate and porcelain tile flooring before and this resilient floating vinyl product was definitely easier than those. It only takes a utility knife to cut planks right on the spot. (Get a lot of replacement blades!) Each plank has two layers that overlap an inch or so and there's slightly tacky adhesive on the overlap edge. Sticky side up meets sticky side down and they form a very strong bond. This travertine design looks really good in our master bathroom. In a few years we will completely remodel this bathroom and this flooring will tide us over until then.
I used a 6 mil plastic sheet over the concrete slab.
There are some great YouTube videos of this product being installed.
One annoyance I have is that as a floating floor, there's a bit of a tappity-tap under foot as the bottom of the floor touches the slab. If that would bother you, then you'll want to go for a true tile floor.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mikiebunny Looks Good; Planning a Must
Bought this tile for a guest bath. I ordered online and the tiles were delivered in a few days. If you are buying these in the store, do make sure that your boxes are from the same run (check the date on the end of the box) so that the tiles will be similar in color. The best tip I can give to do-it-yourself people is to cut the moulding at the doorway by the thickness of the tile so that the tile will slip under the moulding. It's easy to do, but takes a bit of time and can be awkward because you need to lie on the floor while sawing. Just put a tile next to the door moulding and lay your saw on the tile and remove the thickness of the tile from the bottom of the moulding; when you lay the tile it will slide right under the moulding. I also removed the baseboards so that the tile would be under instead of next to the baseboards. I hate how dirt collects between the tile and the baseboards. Removing the baseboards and cutting the door moulding makes a huge difference in how the finished floor looks; your install will be very professional. And you didn't have to spend lots of time (and possibly ruin a couple of tiles) by trying to cut a tile to go around the outside of the moulding! Also, make sure you lay out your floor to be certain of tile placement in order to avoid having a very short tile where you may not want one. In this project, I also used Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations to redo my cabinets, which made a huge difference in the final look. I went from dark cherry cabinets to a light antiqued cabinet, and love it. My advice for the flooring is to take your time, heat the tiles a little as you lay them, and make sure you roll the floor well. Good luck!

I just wanted to upload my photo. For my first try at this product I used it in my bathroom. I found it pretty easy to install. In anything you do that requires measuring, always measure twice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Panaman Great Flooring, extremely durable
This Alure stuff is asweome, very easy to install. To cut it you just score it and snap it. It is perfect for laying down on concrete. The sticky part of the seem is extremely sticky but you can pull it back off as long as you don't let it set very long.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Very Nice Floor
I bought this plank flooring to install in my mudroom/back porch area. The product was easy to work with and looked very nice when completed. Looks great in this very small area, would probably look fantastic in a larger room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brent Super easy to install
This was my first install of a floor of this type. I have installed two floating laminate floors with attached pad in the past. This was twice as easy as I expected. My calculations for the sq. footage of the room plus 10% called for 4.16 cases. I bought 5, and ended up using about 4.8 cases after everything was finished. It took me about 3.5 hours to lay the entire room from start to finish, after my moisture barrier was laid. I will be putting this same product in two other rooms. Could not be more pleased with the product, very very easy to handle and use. Cutting it is a breeze with a utility knife with a new blade. I flipped the blade about halfway thru, so you don't even need many blades to begin with. Cannot recommend this highly enough. The only issue i had is the seams will separate ever so slightly, so it's best to have two people doing it, so one can compress the glue seams together, or use a roller like they recommend to seal the seams. I loved installing this floor. Waaaay easier than installing laminate.

We recently renovated our master bath and chose this on a recommendation from our contractor. We love it! Having used peel and stick floor tile in our guest bath, this is far superior. Seems more durable and look/feels more real. Would absolutely recommend.
