Rated 2 out of 5Â by Joereviewer Tedious install and not resilient
We have had this flooring in our kitchen for a few months now and are not very happy with it. It was tedious and slow to install, and now scratches are already starting to appear. We are very careful with it but somehow it is scratching.
It looks nice (for now) and seems to be waterproof which a positives.
I would not recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by DanoMcd Not worth the effort
I read a lot about this product before giving it a try. The positive reviews and a really good sale gave me the push to try it out. The end result is that I really wish that I had stuck with the tried and true product of tile.
I will just mention a couple things that I haven't seen mentioned elsewhere as you can read the other reviews posted:
- you can make detail cuts with a jigsaw and with a drill spade bit without problem;
- you not only have to leave the recommended gap beside the wall/trim due to expansion but just simply because in order to "click" the pieces together you have to angle it multiple times. This forces you to end up using quarter round at the base;
- the product appears to expand and contract quite alot around heat vents which has caused a couple of the seams to pull apart eventhough they were tight when I finished.
My end message is don't bother with this product.

Installed the Aegean Travertine in my 2nd floor 'kids' bathroom. I did not want ceramic or stone tile because it is cold and could be slippery. These tiles are a good alternative. They are very thick and much better than peel and stick tiles. The only complaint I have is the installation. My suggestions to make it easier: make sure the first row is shimmed very well (2 locations per tile), make a 'tapping block' out of a cut-off to snug up the seams for next rows, and a tile puller is helpful for the last row.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rons Great looking and Easy to install
This is the fourth floor I've done with this flooring. The first three were for customers and the last one was my own bathroom. I think that says it all.

We don`t like tile, and chose the product for our guest bathroom, after a travertine-looking, white-washed cork I initially wanted was out of stock. We did not have any problems installing it, did the 30 sqft in about 90 min, without using any tools except measuring tape, a sharp box cutter, and for some pieces a small, fine-toothed handsaw. Overall I like the product, it`s quieter than laminate, warm on the feet, non-slippery, and easy to clean. The one complaint I have is that the surface texture does not look stone-like at all; it`s too smooth. The overall look is realistic enough for rooms without a lot of natural light, but I would never use it in a kitchen or living room unless they address that problem.
