Rated 4 out of 5 by kz59 The look of slate for a lot less
Had a pro install Amalfi in black in 2 bathrooms and laundry room about 6 months ago (can't really vouch for "ease of installation", but he didn't complain). Did not want to use real tile - house will eventually need foundation work and grout may crack. The flooring isn't really black but a charcoal gray, with a textured surface - perfect for slippery bathrooms. Cleans up easily, looks great, with one small complaint: "grout" lines are not a consistent thickness throughout the roll; some are very thin and barely there. Otherwise, very pleased with the look, and particularly the texture, which is a great safety feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy Camper! LOVE IT!
We bought this floor for a bathroom off of our master bedroom. The master bedroom had a cherry wood look, high-end laminate floor and we wanted something to compliment that color. We chose the Amalfi Mocha and we just love it! The color is outstanding and looks great against the bedroom floor. Even though this is a small bathroom, the Mocha color did not make the room look smaller as we had the walls painted in Sherwin Williams "Steamed Milk" and used their "Greek Villa" color for trim.
We do not like the coldness and hardness of tile, however, like the tile look. This Amalfi flooring was perfect! Another contractor, doing other work for us, saw the installed floor and thought it was tile. It is a "no gloss" floor which is a huge plus for a bathroom. We immediately noticed that it did not have the slickness of the gloss vinyl that was previously installed in that room. We are now planning on installing this same floor in another bathroom.
We just installed this so we cannot comment on durability, and we used a professional installer. He did not appear to have any issues installing the floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cottage LOVE THE LOOK!
We wanted the look of grayish/black slate in our very small bathroom at the cottage but with the temperature changes when we weren't there it made it impossible. This is the next best thing. It looks great and is much better on your feet than ceramic or even real slate would have been. So far so good. I only have one issue with it. It is hard to wash because of the flat finish especially if you drop toothpaste or a white powder of sorts.
My son is doing his bathroom in the basement and wants to use this same flooring.
We love the look!

We had this flooring installed in our bathroom at least 5 years ago and it looks as good now as when it was installed. Our son also used it in his bathroom and was very pleased. In fact, due to a severe flood in his basement causing a total renovation, he is looking for the exact same flooring to replace it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy Mom Beautiful floor
This is my kitchen floor and I wanted vinyl so it could withstand three kids and a dog and all the mess they create. So far so good. Everyone that visits thinks we have a tile floor. Vinyl is much softer on the feet and also doesn't break if something falls on it and doesn't break the something that falls. I absolutely love it and I couldn't be happier.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tonka This floor is a disappointment
We installed this flooring in our breakfast room two years ago. My husband installed it, but he has installed many, many vinyl floors over the years for his job as a professional maintenance contractor and, while not a "flooring professional", he knows what he is doing. Installation was a cinch. In addition, we love the look of the floor. However the colored surface has started to form bubbles and the bubbles tear open, exposing the white foam base underneath. The bubbles are randomly placed and sized and do not seem to be related in any way to how we use the floor. Also, this floor takes forever to dry when wet.
