Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Daisy2 Love these tiles!
I recently purchased a case (+ 4 individual tiles) to complete my front entrance way and if I can accomplish this task relatively easily - anyone can!
The online pic of this tile does not do it justice - they are a little darker and more brown tones, but would go with many paint themes. The tiles were a good thickness, easy to cut, position and 'stick' to a pre-existing vinyl tile base. I'm planning on doing my kitchen makeover next and will purchase the same tiles/colour for the floor.
I am also planning on purchasing the same tiles in the 'beige' tones for a bathroom makeover because, for the price and quality, I've yet to find anything to compare. I'm really happy with my purchase and would recommend these tiles 100%.

What a great tile! Looks great-went down easy-reasonably priced! A little darker than shown but looks "rich" when down! We love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by L2reblsp Easy to install vinyl tile looks great!
Very easy to install and cuts easily with scissors. Looks like slate tiles. I installed it on the bathroom and kitchen floors because I have dogs and cats and it is very easy to clean. For extra durability I added adhesive to the floor which is not necessary but it will stop the tiles from lifting in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michele Durable with an easy installation
I was very pleased overall with this product. It is very durable and comes with a lifetime guarantee on the package. It is easy to cut with a good pair of scissors. These are classic "peel and stick" tiles, so you don't need to purchase any adhesive, padding or level your floor before laying the tile (i.e. - no floor prep beforehand, other than cleaning = money saver!). You can still tell that it's laminate, but it is a very good looking laminate. These laminate tiles are a far cry from the fake wood paneling laminate tiles we had in our kitchen before! Warning! What we got was much darker than what was depicted in the picture, but I was actually happier with the darker look. These tiles seem to run dark, so just keep that in mind before purchasing! Happy tiling!

We're fixing our home up to sell.
This color Morocco Slate tile is beautiful with chocolate browns, golden oaks, black and grays.
I chose vinyl for the foyer to catch any water off of feet to keep as much water off the wood laminate as possible which we are putting down next. . I especially love the MATTE ( non shiney ) finish of t hese tiles they never feel sticky like shiney vinyl. The highly textured surface makes these look like real slate..
This time, these went over wood parquet tile that was real beat up ( 22 years old ) . I bought some used parquet tile of same thickness to extend the foyer area by 2 feet. Filled chips and cracks with wood filler and lightly sanded. Cleaned the floor. Then started laying the beautiful Trafficmaster.
During installation I also used a clean cloth to wipe the area before placing the tile so no debris caught under. Also used a ruler, a box cutter, scissors, pencil and a carpenter's square. Never had to use a chalk line just used prior tile "lines" and used carpenter square to line up. I lay whole tiles first, make sure the ARROWS on the paper backing run the same direction. I peel 1/2 of the film down, fit the tile to the line, hold the first half down while pulling the rest of the paper off. I lay all the whole tiles FIRST so I can get that satisfaction of FAST and RESULTS.
To fit around door jambs SOMETIMES they are not resting on the floor, you can just slip the tile UNDER the door jamb. Otherwise I simply line up the tile that need to be cut, pressing it up against the jamb and lining it up with the already stuck tiles, take my pencil and on the RIGHT SIDE of the tile I carefully mark on the tile edge the width of the door jamb and approx. depth to cut. Make my cut with scissors, fit it again. Look for tiny places on the tile that prevent the tile from fitting you will see which part of your cut BUMPS the jamb first, that's the area to cutt off next. Take the box cutter like you are carving wood and shave tiny bits off at at time. After each shave or cut, place the tile against the jamb to fit again, keep doing this process over and over trim ( maybe 8 to 10 times ), fit again until it fits perfectly and you will NOT need to caulk as it will be perfect. Don't be in a rush, just relax.
BE SURE regardless of color that you make sure all boxes are the same DYE LOT number. The color can vary slightly in different dye lots. Save your leftover tiles in case you should damage one, just use a blow dryer to loosen the damage one, cut an X in middle tile, then pull out.
We used the BEIGE color of this tile OVER CONCRETE for a large bath and laundry room. both down over a year still look new. Laying in a running brick pattern helps keep tiles in place. IF you have a slight uneven floor you may get tiny gaps between tiles, you can grout these with UNSANDED grout. Carefully prep CONCRETE per instructions! I used Henry's concrete primer, a gallon has done many projects. Let dry. Sweep and vac WELL. We plan to buy more to redo the kitchen floor at our new place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Homeowner darker than pictured, but still looks good
I had seen this in-store and been thinking about buying it for 5 years. It is darker than pictured, definitely more brown than shown, which is what I wanted. A friend put it in her kitchen and it looked great, which helped me finally decide to put it in my kitchen and dining room. Preparation is essential -- stripping the finish when installing over vinyl, leveling and priming when installing over concrete. The preparation took more work than the actual installation. The floor has been in place for a year and I have had no trouble with tiles lifting or moving. There are a few spots where I missed some debris and I can feel it through the tile, but the tile has not lifted. The only issue is that not all tiles are the same size. The difference may be only a millimeter or two for some tiles, but because of planks in the pattern I used it was apparent during installation. This is relatively minor and I managed to work with it and no one else can see it, even when I point it out. I am very happy with my floor and would recommend this product without reservation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alishadesiree So simple even I can do it.
This is so simple to install. I keep waiting for something to go wrong, but so far everything is easy. It looks great too. I love the colors. You're supposed to place the tiles all running the same direction using the arrows on the back of each tile, but I wanted a broken look so I'm alternating back and forth. Also, it wasn't recommended that you grout these tiles. You're supposed to buy the more expensive ones. I took a chance and started using the premixed grout. So far no problems there either. I'm very impressed with the way my project is going.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarriedToTheArmy great for cabinets!
I picked these up at my local Depot and was surprised at the picture on both the box and online because they are actually brown marble looking which is what drew my attention to it in the store. I purchased these because we purchased a home that had stains in our cabinet shelving and drawers in the kitchen and the bathrooms. Instead of shelving paper these are much more durable and super easy to clean and looks better too. You can move them right after you stick but after a day or too i couldnt pull one up to re-adjust. Ordering online since my store cant keep them in stock.
