Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jane Good vinyl tile and easy to work with
I used Sagebrush and Cool Gray to create this floor in my kitchen. The success of your project depends on floor prep. As many have said here, you have to make sure the surface is clean and level. I was laying this over a prior vinyl floor. The floor was level and all I had to do was clean it good with TSP and hot water. I did use the bonding primer (also sold at HD) to make sure the tiles would adhere properly. I used a good sharp knife to score and snap the tile for areas around doors. I also did an undercut so they would slide underneath without showing cut lines. Again, pretty easy with proper measuring.
I'm very happy with the results. This 9x13 floor cost me under a little under $200. I would recommend Trafficmaster Ceramica to anyone. It's a thicker tile than most out there and the finish has a nice sheen without being high gloss shiny. I also like that I could use two different colors on the floor. Before and after photos show the improvement.

Wonderful flooring product. It lays down great, but because it is a bit of a hybrid product can be tuff to cut in the detail areas. Floor can be laid in a day, but trim floor prep and details can take a couple of days to do right. We will see what time will tell, but I don't anticipate any problems. Total time to install a complete 150 sq. floor 3.5 days.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AnnM Excellent tile...JUST BE CAREFUL on you ORDER
Everything about the product was fantastic. Easy to put in and easy to grout. The biggest issue we had was ordering...we needed about 2 more tiles from our original order...the box says 10x10 but it is more like 9x10...we ordered a second box - not worried about the colors matching because it is a manufactured tile...but we had to order it 4 different times! The company kept sending us the wrong color...turns out -they sent the wrong color to begin with (which I thought was off from the beginning- but the Sagebrush matched the black sink we had...so I just thought the color was just off from the internet pictures.) W e originally thought we were ordering the Coastal Grey -but when they sent the 2nd box, they sent Concrete Gray, then Coastal Grey - until I noticed the Sagebrush color on line. - and figured out to order that. Luckily - Home Depot was really good about returning all of it...but just be careful - the manufacturer who sends you the product - often sends the wrong colored tiles!!! My recommendation is to order one more box than you need...if you don't need it- return it to the HOME DEPOT store and get your money back. Good luck!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ltc Very nice looking!
I love these tiles. The colors are beautiful and they look very expensive / high quality / not cheap. I just installed them a few days ago so I can't speak to their durability, but I'm very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brendan Came out even better than I hoped.
I originally did not want to use peel and stick tiles as that is what I had just torn out, and already knew their weaknesses. The styles available in store were also all unappealing and limited to me. I thought better of it when I saw that they could be grouted, reducing or eliminating the seams where dirt could get under them, or they can wear and come loose, and looked at the larger selection here online.
I ordered these along with Simple Grout pre mixed grout in "Natural Gray" to tile roughly 60 square feet on top of concrete sub floor in my kitchen. The tiles all went in in maybe three hours tops, working at a fairly calm pace. Used 1/8th inch tile spacers to create grout seams. laying tiles from the measured center of the room out. Did the grout a day later in about an hour and a half.
As others stated, the tiles are fairly thick to cut, though I did find that if scored repeatedly from the BACK side with a utility knife, they could be "snapped" to the point that they were held only by the textured face, and could then be slit lengthwise with the knife from there. A better cutting system would speed up the job though. I installed with the tiles all facing the same direction as the arrows on the backing, in the order they came out of the box, and can discern no repeating pattern in any of the tiles.
The final product is really better than I had hoped. The tiles look very close to stone, and the grout really sells it. They may not be the "real deal" as far as stone tiles go, but the sheer cost savings make that moot. Material is a fraction of the cost, and my labor is "free." I spent just about two hundred dollars total, and that includes a mostly unused box of tile, and a grout that was too light in color that I ended up scraping out and not using.
So far they seem tough. I manged to put light surface scratches in them dragging the stove back in place, which all disappeared with a little rubbing. I anticipate they will wear well over the years, and I have plenty of spares if any need replacing.
If you are on the fence, just buy them.

I am a 40yr old woman and I was able to lay this tile and grout it with Pre-mixed grout all in a day by myself. I purchased 16 boxes. It is so easy to work with and easy to cut. The color was a bit different than it appeared on site/box however it is still beautiful. Very thick and durable. I am completely satisfied and can't wait to see how well it holds up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by indianamom Excellent value!
We have installed these tiles in two bathrooms. In the first bathroom, we took up the existing sheet vinyl and used an additional adhesive. In the second bathroom, we left the sheet vinyl and used no additional adhesive. We grouted both with a gray grout from Home Depot. Both floors look great! We are optimistic that they will continue to look good and wear well.

Someone else put these in for us, so I can't say anything about ease of installation. but they look absolutely great... and we didn't grout, just laid them over the clean, old vinyl. They are wearing well after 3 months, and feel so good on bare feet. We have yet to put in baseboards.
