Rated 5 out of 5Â by olmp1100 Simple install of nice looking laminate
Just installed this laminate in our kitchen. First time floor install for us, and it couldn't have been simpler! A few tips:
We found that there are five (5) different patterns of "boards". Each "board" has the appearance of three planks of wood. The first thing we did was open the boxes and separate them into 5 different piles according to pattern.
As we installed them, we put a piece of painters tape on each board with the corresponding pattern number. That way, as we were installing, we could ensure a good mix of patterns. It also helped us visually see which patterns looked nice together and lined up the best.
Be The only tools you need are a circular saw to cut the end pieces and a rubber mallet to tap the planks into place.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Bigt4u610 Great for the price!!
Installed this product in my kitchen almost two years ago and it still looks great! Installation was relatively easy, but there were several broken corners in the boxes. I just put the broken or chipped planks together to create a full box and returned them to Home Depot for a refund (piece of cake). In lieu of that.... I'd order an extra box or two right away. Be sure to glue the planks wherever water may come into contact with ANY laminate flooring (eg.. sink, dishwasher, ect..)!! Haven't had any scratching issues with the pets or table chairs. Will purchase more to continue through my foyer.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kbro This laminate looks great installed
I was amazed at how good this looked when finished. I thought it would be okay at the price but it has brightened up every room I put it in and was easy to install. I move slow and it took me about a day per room beginning to end. Highly recommended to anyone with a budget.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DMC7 So easy a woman can do it!!!
I have to say that I was scared to take on this job myself, but when you own your home and want to get a job done without huge costs you jump in feet first! I went to YouTube for a tutorial on how to install laminate planks, I watched it one time and then headed off to Home Depot. At the store I talked with the flooring manager for a few minutes to see approximately how many packages of flooring I would need for my 22 x 14 room (I purchased 15) I set out to begin my project, first ripping out all of the carpeting, tacks and nail strips around the edge of the room. I then started laying out the under layment and the flooring, mind you it was 3 days after I purchased so it had time to acclimate to the temperature. So, I began my install on a Saturday afternoon around 2 pm and I worked BY MYSELF (I am woman!!) laying and cutting all of the pieces ... I finished the install at 1:30 A.M. on the following Sunday morning .. when I begin a project I can't stop until finished, it's like a great novel. It is so beautiful still 2 years later and I have two big dogs running across it constantly! I loved this flooring so much that I did a second room again by myself a few months later! LOVE IT so much that once again I am going to purchase more and redo my kitchen with it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by AllThumbsRob Excellent value
I needed to match some existing flooring and this matched so well that it is almost unnoticable from the older pieces. I was easily able to remove the damages slats, snap in the new ones and tap them together for a clean fit. I chose to attach them using finishing screws, because the floor is uneven, but I was able to find a matching DAP Plastic wood in the exact same shade.
