I originally bought this tile for our bathroom remodel over three years ago. I liked it so much that we decided to use it for our new kitchen also. It looks so much like ceramic tile but is softer, quieter and less breakable. The color selection was just what we were looking for. Did find a few scratches on it but finally figured that was from little stones tracked in from the pool area. Now we check our flip flops before entering the kitchen! Easy to care for and holding up really well. Our contractor liked it so much, he started recommending it to other customers!

Comment:
Overall we like this product but its certainly not perfect. Care must be taken to not drop sharp items or the color surface of tiles could chip. Also, make sure your furniture has fresh/soft sliders under each leg/foot or you could eventually rub through or scratch the color surface of the tiles and expose a white material. Our professional installer told us to use a colored felt tip pen to touch up any damaged areas. That works pretty good on our color tile. Great floor for houses with dogs. Ours range from 10lbs to 95lbs and the floor has stood up well.
