Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mjx429 Love the look, I have received plenty of compliments. People do not believe this a vinyl flooring product.
I used this product with grout in my kitchen (275sq ft) The end result was a great looking floor! I did follow the manufactures instructions and used the adhesive primer. There are a just few "popping" noises from the tile, that may be the uneven subfloor as the house was built in the 70's. With this particular style you need to remove the haze from the grout immediately, as I spent 3 hours with a razor blade scrapping off the residue the next day. I purchased the Camel style tiles awhile back for my bathroom & installed with a grout line. The Camel tiles were much easier to clean up after the grout. Definitely a different product, even thou the same manufacturer (I used the same grout manufacturer). I would continue to use this line of products, can't beat the stone look at this price!

I was a flooring installer for 25 years so installation was a breeze and should be fairly simple for anyone with basic DIY skills. I would recommend if you're using grout, cut the spacers into "T" shapes ahead of time because you'll be staggering the joints and + shapes won't work (I used a scissors. This will save you time and frustration from doing it as you go. The quality of the tile seems excellent as well as the adhesion of the glue. I installed mine over new 5 mm exterior grade Luan underlayment and had no problems. I used the recommended pre-mixed grout (color was LINEN) and it was easy and straight forward. If you want to see any of the tile available "online only" you can visit a Home Depot and there are samples of the "online only/special order" tile in the Tile aisles.

I put this down right over old vinyl in a bathroom. It laid easily, the adhesive sticks very tight and is was fairly easy to cut- with a VERY SHARP knife. I think grouting it made all the difference in looking like "real" tile vs. stick on tiles. It totally upgraded the look of the bathroom for less than 50 bucks.

Nice looking product. I used grout to give authentic tile look. People who have seen finished job can't believe it is not real ceramic tile.
Would definitely use again...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BGLG great product -- great look
I am a professional handyman and have installed many types of flooring. I, as many have indicated, was a bit skeptical especially since local HD had limited sample and even less knowledge about the product. I decided to try it in my own bathroom remodel and was very impressed!
Price was a fraction of using actual travertine and installation was much simpler and quicker (more savings). I used powergrab adhesive in each corner and the middle to suppliment the products peel-and-stick. I also used a light shade of grout at 1/8". I do recommend using a backerboard / underlayment so you have a clean surface, but primarily to adjust thickness and final floor height, as this product is thinner that actual tile.
It has been 8 months and no problems! I recently listed the house for sale and many realtors commented on the tile, not believing it was a vinyl floor!

We purchased this flooring in May 2012. It took a little to come in but the install was easy. The color is more beige than shown in the picture. We installed the flooring without grout and love it! I was concerned that the tiles would not stick properly but it was put down right over the existing vinyl flooring and has not raised up at all. We did make sure that the vinyl was secure before putting the tiles down. We were pleasantly surprised at the low cost of this flooring and picked it because there is little to no prep work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Megan Just beautiful!
I own multiple rental properties and I strive to make them look high end while getting improvents done fast and affordably. I have used this product in a different size and color and it has been down in one rental for over a year with no problems. I was delighted to see this new 12"x24" size in travertine when it came time to redo one of my tenants bathrooms. The look is modern and once down it looks just like high end floor tiles. In real life this floor is much more beautiful and high quality than the picture suggests. The whole floor took about six total hours to cut tiles, lay them, and grout. My tenant has not stopped talking about how beautiful her bathroom is. I'm closing on a new house this month, guess what I will be buying more of...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hebes405 Excellent product. Easy install. Stylish. Durable
We went with another style tile but I wanted to rate this product (can't rate things you buy in the store only online?) If you are a novice and want a tile look and durability of real tile with out all the labor and cost, you cant go wrong with this product. I installed the coastal grey in my kitchen 2 years ago. All our guest say how nice it is. It has held up well to lots of foot traffic and a dog.
I recently remodeled our bathroom and this is was great option for the flooring, maybe better than real tile. Really easy to install (you can do an average size room, start to finish in one day). I am little more experienced, with flooring and construction, than your average homeowner, so I think install is a breeze. I had trained the wife (novice) in no time.
Here is some install tips. SHARP knife. Use a straight edge and lightly mark you cut then go over a second swipe with more pressure and snap it like drywall, that's it I used a straight edge on the long edges to line them up and a basic tile spacer for the grout line (don't necessarily need to buy spacers, you can use anything that is uniform and only need a few because once your tile is set, just move them to the next piece.) Follow the directions on the box for the layout, and get your first piece perfect, that is the corner stone of the rest of floor. The box recommends using a floor roller but a rolling pin does a great job. The adhesive is supper sticky so bend the tile like a rainbow, don't let it sag when you go to set it. Lastly and most important. Your job will only be as good as your prep work, don't cut corners on this and you will have a great floor in a weekend.
