This product was a pleasure to order, pick up and work with. The tiles were light, flexible and just the right color. Install was a snap - even though there were a lot of molding cut outs in our 1860's Victorian farmhouse) - Materials were a piece of chalk, a T Square and a pair of strong, sharp scissors. I watched a few on-line installation videos and I was ready to roll.
The 9X8 bathroom took about 3-4 hours to install because of that - a plain square room would have been much faster. Since an old house is not built perfectly sized, the floor size can be up to an inch or two larger in another area of the room. With this tile, it was easy to cut an extra strip to snug into a spot that was larger than where I originally began to lay the tiles. Cutting the tiles was as easy as cutting out paper dolls - and I was grateful because the arthritis in my hands can really act up when cutting tiles
Whether the tiles will hold up well is a question. And, since I installed them over a very damaged 1920's ceramic tile floor, whether they will stay put, also remains to be seen. Only time will tell. But I just vacuumed the new floor and it looks absolutely fabulous. Since it is not a high traffic area, I am feeling very hopeful!
I may install these tiles in our 2 other bathrooms. They are priced right, look great and installation could not be simpler.
Bravo Traffic Master for making a good looking, easy product that is also made in the USA!

Even if you have never done any kind of flooring installation yourself, this product is so easy and does not take up your precious time off to do. I had it done in 3.5 hours which includes a breakfast break. Love how it looks and how easy it is to vacuum now that the raging pollen is in full force.

The instructions are not very good, but in spite of that it went quickly and a tile is repossitionable in case you don't lay it in tight enough the first time. I did a bathroom floor, and some sort of grid on the backing would be great for where tile has to be cut to go around cabinets/toilet. Straight lines can be simple to cut using the adhesive lines on the back as a guide.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jenH better then expected
they are thin but once down they are great. Only complaint was that they were a little pricey you will probably do better if you go with the 24/24inch tiles. Our basement gets alittle wet every couple years and these indoor outdoor tiles were the perfect solution.

These carpet squares are lightweight not thick and heavy--which is great because they will dry quickly. I installed them on the concrete porch next to the deck--now my feet dont get cold. I used regular scissors to make the cuts.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ThomR Nice, although not quite what was expected
Putting these tiles down was easy as pie. Unfortunately, there's not enough adhesive on the back - so the tiles sometime want to peel up around the edges. Of course, my basement floor (where these are located) is somewhat uneven, so someone with an even floor may have better luck. However, a little carpet tape (plain double-sided will probably work, too) around the edges that didn't stick well fixed that problem.
Also, the picture online seemed to make the pattern look like it was flat and diamond-shaped. However, while it is a diamond pattern, the diamonds are raised - not flat. So, I've found that when vacuuming, I sometimes have to go over certain areas a few times, as stuff tends to get stuck in the pattern.
Those couple of relatively minor negatives aside, my basement looks absolutely beautiful with this floor. And even in the cool New England spring, the basement floor was kept warm enough to walk barefoot. I covered about 340 sq. ft. in about 6 hours - that's how quickly and easily it went down. Well worth the price, which really isn't bad, I'd say.

I wonder if you would consider using even sized amounts of adhesive....the thinner strips are not as efficient as the wider strips.
