I'm 78 yrs young, female with a fallen right bicep - did a small bathroom in a little over a day - bought the roof tile shears recommended - forget it - score with a razor blade on a straight edge and cut with scissors around toilet and vanity - would highly recommend - also check out on youtube - lots of good hints

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tpaawdarin33 Great for Dance Studio Floor
I am 22 years old recently renovated a portion a historical building for a dance studio. We used 2000 sq ft. of the Allure flooring for the dance floor itself. We searched for months to find just the right floor (we could not afford $5000 for a true marley dance floor). After dancing on many samples I made the decision that this floor feels the most comparable to a marley dance floor..Not slippery/Not Sticky...And cost much less than marley...Everyone who enters the studio space at first glance thinks this is a beautiful "hardwood floor" .. when we say it is resiliant vinyl Allure Flooring they can not believe it....It holds up to tap shoes, ballet/pointe shoes, hip hop dancing, couples dancing, etc. We have over 200 children dancing on these floors weekly. We are now expanding our dance studio to another 1000 sq ft. at the present time and look forward to using this same floor. It is easy to install...You MUST roll it out with a roller to ensure that it stays securely glued...You can not beat the price. Clean up is easy...We would say if this floor can withstand weekly dance classes with 200 active dancers it can certainly withstand anything!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by STLJON Allure Brazilian Cherry Vinyl
I was looking for an affordable flooring solution for my 8 x 10 basement landing. I found this product and thought I would give it a try.
This product is fantastic, and looks great. The other reviews are correct INSTALL IS EASY. I would recommend a tape measure, strait edge to guide your cuts, a good utility knife, and a board to cut on. I did not roll this, but I walked every seam. Everyone that sees this thinks I laid a wood floor, and comments how nice it looks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JDog123 Love it!
I used this in a rental for durability from tenants and also the appearance looks fantastic. I am super happy with this product. I installed it everywhere in a 900 square foot 2 bed 1 bath apartment and it looks great. This installs way easier than most flooring but it still takes some time and attention to detail. For example I installed all of it myself and it took 3 solid full days to install with no help from others. Advice, the planks have the sticky side which hook onto each other so start on the farthest wall in a corner and work out from there so you will always have a sticky tab to connect pieces with. This didn't seem that big of deal but when I was going from bedroom to living room etc I realized that I started at the wrong spot and should've started in another room on the far wall. It all feeds off of each other and needs that lip. I started in the main hall but then had an issue trying to install into a bedroom which was on the opposite side of the sticky side. So basically work from your farthest point and move across the floor from there. I have been able to scratch this moving furniture etc but I can barely see the scratches so no complaints from me. It still looks great. Water doesn't phase it because I spilled plenty of buckets of water on it. I would buy and install this product again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PB0224 Nice looking floor but had some issues
I installed this flooring myself and was the first floor I have ever done. It took several tries with laying the planks before I finally figured out how to do it. Luckily I ordered enough to have extras. Make sure that you start the floor just like the picture in the instructions! There is a top and bottom and you need to make sure you cut the right end. The brazilian cherry is a dark color but is very nice. My first issue is the odor from the planks. It smells like rubber and it still smells 2 weeks after I installed it. I have had the windows open to air it out and it is getting better but still smells. The second issue is that I slid a full size bed frame about a 1/2 in with rubber feet and just notice that it slid several planks and now the blue glue strip is showing. The bed was not heavy but I should have put furniture movers or something under the feet so make sure you don't slide anything on the floor with out felt or something that will slide under the legs. I had ordered enough for 2 rooms and found one room had a refinished floor under the carpet so I returned the planks to Home Depot with no problem which was very nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steve I love this flooring
I've used this flooring in the kitchens and bathrooms in three of my apartments with great success. It's soft under-foot and durable. Unlike sheet vinyl repairs are easy. Using a heat gun or a hair drier set on high gently heat the adhesive strip and slowly separate it. Pop in the new plank and you're done.
There is one thing about this product that is extremely frustrating. I wrote to the manufacturer to no avail. The adhesive strips are shipped with no protective waxed paper strips over them. During cutting the adhesive attracts everything. It must be completely clean for the adhesive to adhere properly with no lumps or bumps. A simple peel-off strip would solve this problem.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LianneM Worst floor ever!
I have .32 cent a square foot tiles that are better quality than this. Was fairly easy to install and looks ok until the sun shines through the window and you see all the scratches...some from the 50# standard poodle (her nails are kept short) and others from what, I don't know! Have used the scotch brite pad and allure single step, removes some scratches but not enough. All of my funiture has the felt on the legs so the scratches are not from that.Only 3 adults live in the house so it's not even like I can blame it on kids. Wish I hadn't wasted my money!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Craig Need a stair covering option to match
I laid the brazillian cherry allure in my finished basement space which is around 475 sq ft. It went down very easily and it completely changes the look of the basement. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a simple to install, cost effective, good looking flooring option.
