Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arcadian75 The material in this flooring is dual-layer and about 1/8" thick. It made for a nice replacement for cheap vinyl in my bathroom. You can cut this fairly easily with a blade knife, but for edging around odd shapes, a flooring shears makes it much easier. It has a heavy feel to it and connects together with adhesive on the edges (no need to adhere each strip to your floor), so installation was simple.

Redid a bathroom with claw foot tub.....put down this flooring first time ever used...home depot associate recommended it....wow easy to install, sticks very fast, durable, looks fantastic, good quality, just looks beautiful and the print is just beautiful. stagger your panels and if you make a mistake a hair dryer or heating gun is needed to remove...the stick is unbelievable. I would recommend this product for bathroom kitchen, utility knife and sheers are all you need. my husband with sometimes little patience loves this product

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mudpie I used the allure a few times and I loved the ease of installation. Unfortunetly , no Home Depot around my area carries it anymore. I had to have it shipped. I opened the box on the evening it had to be installed and the edge with the rubber attaching strip was all cracked and broken on every piece in the box. I was in a time restraint because carpet was being installed the next day so I had to use it. I hope it will stay in place only using 1 tab. I will never buy this product again.

The logo on the box says, "The Easiest Floor Ever." That must be true if I can do it. I put this down in two bathrooms. The most difficult part was cutting out to go around the toilet. One should not remove the toilet to install the floor under it because it is meant to be a floating floor. The directions say to leave a small gap at the walls so that there is room for the floor to expand, if necessary with temperature change. I made a scale diagram of each bathroom to plan how to lay the pieces - strips across the short side of the room or along the long side. This style has fake grout lines so those need to be lined up properly for it to look right. Note that the first row has the "over-edge" removed so it will not be 12" wide as the other rows will be. In the plan shown, I started with the long side of the strip along the side marked "tub" and, if I had started with the side marked "wall" there would have been possibly as many as four pieces requiring cut-outs for the toilet. This is one consideration in deciding which wall you start on. Also, if I had planned for a full length at the top of the diagram that would have meant four pieces with cutouts. The hashed-out area in the lower right of the diagram is the space for the cabinet so I decided to cut the five strips that ended with short side up against the side of the room marked "wall" so that there would not be small pieces at the cabinet. At the door I had to make small cutouts for the door frame. It would have been better if I had cut the bottom of the door frame so that the tile slipped underneath it.
Hint: in making the straight cuts the instructions say to score and then bend to break. That works very well as long as you can get a good straight score to begin with. I had difficulty because the straight edge tended to move as I was scoring. Using a clamp to prevent that would be advisable. If you make your score at the maximum length for a piece ending at the wall, then want to trim to allow for the gap, I found that a hand-held wood plane works nicely to trim the edge evenly. Just set it for a very small cut.
The wall I have is tile all the way to the floor and the man at the store suggested using a moulding at the edge by wall or tub such as "5109 11/32 in. x 11/16 in. x 8 ft. PVC Composite White Prefinished Shoe Base Moulding" glued to the wall or tub and not the floor (a slight gap is needed to allow for expansion/contraction with temperature change). If you choose that method just be sure to not get wood - get the material that is moisture resistant. I also thought of using "Tub and Wall, Peel and Stick Caulk Strip" (comes in various widths and colors) - installed with the vertical part stuck to the tub and the horizontal part floating above the floor. I have not done either yet. Maybe I'll edit this when I have done one or the other or both.
I figured that the room was too small to use a roller and too difficult to get in around the toilet so I did not use a roller on the seams, as per the instructions. I used a rubber mallet to pound the seams after laying them down. I will have to see if the adhesive holds with the method.
I watched some videos on installing this material and took the advice "with a grain of salt." You probably could do the same.

I have used this before in a laundry room, this time in two bathrooms. With some moderate leveling before hand, this flooring goes down moderately easily with average do it yourselfer skills and willingness to follow the instructions. The result is a beautiful floor with a shiny finish and a somewhat cushy feel to walk on it. It cleans up with ease and maintains its shine for years.
