Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by diysinglemom so easy to install just about anyone could do it.
I put this product in my front entry, back landing and stairs. It is easy to work with and looks awesome. I have had lots of compliments on it as well. It is easy to keep clean. I am planning on putting it in my laundry room next. The only problem with it is trying to find it in stock when you need more.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gramj334 Very happy 1 1/2 years later
I waited a over a year to write my review because I wanted to see how it held up, and how easy it was care for. Before choosing this product, I read the reviews, and we considered other products. We had spent 41/2 months refinishing the hardwood floors on the first floor of our 90 year old home. This product was to go next the hardwood floor. (We were very pleased with our hardwood floors, but exhausted.) We initially wanted the light bamboo Allure product, but decided that a fake wood grain, no matter how good, wood still look fake next to our now beautiful hardwood floors. So we chose the light cork. I am very happy with my floor. It has held up well. The only complaint I have is that we have an old cart with rubber wheels, and you look real close you can see scuff marks. They do come out. I was amazed that when I discovered a drip of white nail polish that had dried on the floor, it pealed right off! I also spilled some pink fabric paint on it. I wiped this up while still wet. It did not remove completely until I used an eraser sponge on it. But now, you cannot tell where it is. Overall the cork design camouflages the dirt, so I am not compelled to clean it just because of a few crumbs. On the other hand, when I do clean it (I use a swifter mop), it looks just like new! Yes, you can see the lines of the planks if you look closely, but they blend nicely and we usually have to point them out to visitors.
I gave it 4 stars because it was not as easy to install as we thought. Cutting off for the first start, and lack of good instructions. Cutting around items was probably easier than laminate, but we still couldn't get a perfect fit. But with quarter round, all looks good. My husband used an oscillating tool to cut under the door trims so we get a smooth fit there. We would choose this product again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tidge This is a terrific way to upgrade a tired vinyl floor.
As a preface: my husband designed our house in 1969...now fast forward to late 2012. We were dreading the post-Christmas visit of our younger daughter, her handyman husband and their seven children-- not because of the numbers, but because we had been (reluctantly) persuaded to "let them" install a new Allure floor in our kitchen, back hall and adjoining bathroom. They had put down Allure floors before and really liked them. Well, the visit was wild, but what a wonderful job they did with a fabulous product!
Then our older daughter, her husband and their three kids arrived to help (and fix meals). In two days the twelve boxes of Allure (Lisbon Cork Light) transformed our tired, shiny-vinyl floors into modern matte-finish wonders. Even the ten grandkids helped by dancing and sliding to ensure that the planks stuck together!
We had also been anxious about the slightly uneven surface, but the floating Allure made it not a problem. I'm not sure why, but the new floor even feels warmer.
We had just enough left over for our son-in law to refloor a half-bath. We are more than pleased and are planning to install the same Allure in the Master Bath...when we can get the gang here again!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cajmf Instant gratification!
This product was easy to install and looks great. We love the look of cork, but wanted to durability of vinyl in our secondary bathroom. The price point was great. It floats, so would be easier to change than the old tile we removed. Plan to put this in our laundry room. Should go right over the old vinyl that is there now. A few hours and we had a new floor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by superson Easy to install and looks great
I installed 600+ sqft of this in my parents home in a single day with no prior experience. It is easy and looks great. I cannot comment on the durability yet as I just completed the install. I liked it so well I'm going to install it in my home office. The only complaint I have is that out of 25 boxes that I ordered one box had about half the strips damaged from rough handling, I was glad I ordered additional material initially.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moldman So far, very happy with flooring
Installed as finishing touch on a 2 month bathroom remodel project. Install was very easy, took about 2 hours to lay 70 sq/ft. Iy's only been in for about a month, but so far we are very happy with the results. Only time will determine it's durability.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnnyMo Great product
Easy installation, good looking and inexpensive. My wife and I did our kitchen in less then a day, on top of an old linoleum floor. Now the floor looks fabulous, plus it feels great to walk on. The seams are barely noticeable and, in my opinion, separates this product from a vinyl sheet job.
We used the Lisbon Cork pattern.
I do believe the 100 lb roller at the end of the installation is the key to a good adhesion. I could hear the sound of the seams being glued to one another under the roller.
I've had the floor done for about a month now and I get nothing but "wows" from my friends.
I'm very satisfied and I highly recommend this product..
