I have an existing vinyl floor in my basement bathroom, and installing this straight over it was simple and now looks fantastic, doesnt look like vinyl and doesnt look like tile. It's a simple quick and cheap fix for a bathroom, only temporary though, you should put something down within a year because it'll probably outdate.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mreno Great tile look without the hassle
We put this flooring in our foyer. We wanted ceramic tile but that would entail sistering joists and redoing the subfloor. (We did this in our kitchen so we knew how involved this is!) The subfloor also had the correct underlayment for vinyl stick tile so we decided on "tile look". The tiles went down great. Straight cuts were easy, curved and intricate cuts were not so easy since the tile is stiff. We did a herringbone pattern which made the room look larger. I used 1/8" spacers and filled in with delorean gray with Simple Grout. It is a great floor! The only con is that it is slippery with socks and certain shoes. I think the surface could have more texture to prevent that. It also has quite alot of sheen. Just be aware of that.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Vickietoria The pics here do not do it justice
Saw these in the store initially and couldn't believe the price after seeing these installed at a neighbor's place which obviously held up very well to normal wear and tear in their high traffic areas. They do use Armstrong floor cleaner designed for this line of floors. The pearl color is lux and in a league of its own because of the added metallic wash. I will use it on my hallway, into a kitchen and to finish off tops of walls in lieu of tile in my small bath and over the doors giving it a sense of continuity. The photo here is sadly lacking texture. Reviews of the 12x12 squares are more descriptive of the many fluid shades of taupes/grays/beliges and two different metallic rubs - subtle but effective. The bigger tiles have more continuity lengthwise while the squares' pattern seems to be more self contained (if the right word), i.e. as if rubbed i a circle. I think given a choice the bigger tiles are more versatile and may be cut into squares anyway but look richer as they are. Hoping the store sample boards will add to the review. It does not look too modern to me but rather will fit beautifully with my Restoration Hardware furniture and add a clean feel of a elegant Italian floor I once saw in a Tuscan villa. Could go modern w/o changing floors. Read the reviews of the square tiles - better descriptions and tips. My photo looks a bit dark but you can get an idea. Square pic shows the heavier metallic on the smaller tiles. I am no longer bitter about my small budget. :)

We needed to replace the ceramic tile in our motorhome. This was easy to install. It weighs less than ceramic tile and gives you the look of tile as you can use grout with it. In a situation such as ours, where it's in an RV that flexes as you're going down the road, we were told by a grout manufacturer to use premixed grout.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ViennaDIY The flooring really looks fantastic, Easy to install
The flooring really looks fantastic. The silvery sheen and glint from the sunlight reflections do a good job looking like real stone. We installed it onto a cleaned, prepped concrete floor in the basement. It's been the fastest floor I've ever installed. We didn't use spacers, but wil just use grey caulking to lock up some joints that are over 1/16" to ensure dust doesn't get underneath and start peeling up. We used a utility knife to score and snap the tile, but I've found we get an extremely clean and fast cut with the chop saw, not even a plywood blade. I'm extremely pleased with the flooring appearance and overall quality!
