Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sharward Excellent Value, Very Simple to Install, Great DIY Project
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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stuke I LOVE THIS STUFF!!
I have used Allure Flooring in several other areas so knew the value going in. If you are looking for a well made, DIY product- whether you've done flooring before or not, that really holds up- GET THIS !
Can't get much easier- a cutting tool ( razor knife or I have even used a commercial paper cutter ) and a tape measure. Fast, easy, clean. I have had some of this down over 5 years and even with a 65 pound indoor dog, it looks like brand new. Easiest upkeep ever! Lots of styles- my last was the Cherry wood grain and people can not tell its not wood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by perspective It's all good/keep project area very clean.
This flooring looks good. I like it better than the other patterns that include grout lines. It seamed together perfectly at a door with another wood look plank in the Traffic Master Allure. We just kept the paper (to protect the stickyness from dust) on the sticky side (sticky tab up!)of the first (wood look plank) at the bathroom door. Finished the big room first. Went back to the bathroom and started at the door with the first pieces of this travertine pattern. Went back from there. There is almost no waste in this flooring. Depending on your pattern choice sometimes whatever scrap is left over from the last run is used to start the next run. We did about a 1/3rd offset on this job. Looks great and I know it will last years just as our other projects have for many of our clients. We look forward to using this product again soon.
