I installed this in our bathroom reno 18 months ago. It took some patience to get the seams correct and it is kind of tough to cut so take your time, plan it out, keep things clean, especially the glue strips and you'll be fine. This will take a few hours, any shorter and you're rushing it, you may have problems down the road with the seams. It was put down over new flooring plywood so the install remains very smooth. I then put this same tile down in our front hall directly on top of linoleum. We have had no problems at all, still sitting exactly where I laid it, seams remain perfect. There is never anything heavy dragged or rolled over the flooring (except moving some furniture out the front door) so I can't speak to heavy appliances marking the floor. I will be doing our kitchen in a few months and am currently looking at the plank style Allure. I'm not sure that a smooth surface tile will remain perfect when the appliances or kitchen table/chairs are moved, so it's still in the research phase. The red rock tile is very strong and is textured, not shiny so there is no visible scuffing even if it was there. Any small pieces that went down without the glue strip stay in place quite nicely using very thin double sided carpet tape.

We began the project of getting our home of 21 yrs ready to sell. We tried the Allure tile interlocking floor first in our master bath. We loved the "look". Installation went well. The next room we tackled was the laundry, by now my husband was the master of installation =) we then preceded to the front bathroom. We had 3 lookers w/offers we sold to offer #1 w/2 back up offers and all the Realtor's, buyer's, inspector, and appraiser gave us rave reviews on, you guessed it the bathrooms and laundry room =) We are currently renovating our Dad's house to move to and we are installing Allure interlocking tile in the bathroom, kitchen dining room, laundry room and powder room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cobra888 Fairly easy to install, great looking
The is the second time I installed this product in my kitchen. This time, I ordered a design that I liked instead of choosing from stock and I am really glad I did. The floor looks great (red rock). I takes a little practice to get the tiles to be snug and not show the seams, but after a few tries you the the hang of it and the floor goes quickly from there. I used my table saw to make most of the cuts and tin snips to do the irregular shaped cuts. The result is a durable great looking floor. I can also say from experience that removing the floor is very easy - another plus of this type of flooring.

I had a very difficult area to cover with this product but, overall, was pleased with the result. The only drawback I had (as a woman--no cracks please, guys), was it is very challenging to cut this product for areas where only a small part of it is needed. Since it is a pretty expensive product, you certainly have to be very careful about mistakes.

Overall we are pleased with this floor. However, the installation was not the easiest thing we've ever done... the pieces are difficult to cut into small places or around awkward angles. But it matched what we had really well and certainly looks better than what was there! I recommend ordering more than what you think you'll need. But for the price, it is a great alternative to real tile and receives lots of compliments.

I installed this in my kitchen and hallway yesterday and it was a full day project. I am a beginner with no experience installing flooring and found this product to be easy to work with. I will say that the planks score better when they are not cold, it's better for it to be warmer in the room that they are being installed. I plan to do the bathroom next. I found the reviews and photos posted to be quite helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OhioDIYer Very good product!
The vinyl went down super easy and the seams are even less noticeable than I was hoping. Installation was even easier than I was thinking it would be. I put it over top a laminate rolled floor and it was a solid day project I wish I'd have done years ago. My house was built in 1901 and the floors have more hills and valleys than W. Virginia so this floor was by far the best option I could come up with, the texturing and contrasts in the floor actually hide the unevenness of the subfloor and the seams have been just as tight at the tops of the hills as everywhere else. Only suggestions for the future... I had a pair of heavy duty scissors (I think they are actually straight cut tin snips) for the short cuts around cabinets and molding I didn't remove that made life way easier, and when I did cut the length of the tile I found that even when I only lightly scored the top with my utility knife, the floor still broke along the cut perfectly (wish I would've figured that out sooner, would've had an easier time keeping cuts straight from the get go). This served a super affordable alternative to other flooring options.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scott An interesting concept in tile installation
Using the system provided in this installation lacks some of the finesse of other older systems. This system does not require finding the center of the room to lay tile from that point. This system requires that the tile only be started at one of the corners of the room. This system also has more waste as a result due to the need to cut lengths of tile that would not work to start one of the future starts. I recommend using an 18% overage to compensate. The tile also required a bit more work to get it to meet up properly after going around the island in the kitchen. Overall, I am pleased with the look and performance of the tile, especially the ability to easily replace tile if damage occurred.
