Traffic master vinyl flooring suggestion..

Im going to attempt some vinyl flooring in my kitchen. But because I have 250 sq ft and am doing it myself I want to ask here first before I buy..

Im looking at this product here..

Traffic Master does not have a good history.

Not sure on Allure, but other glue together LVT gave this type of flooring a bad name as they had a batch where the glue failed resulting in a lot of negative reviews. I never had an issue on the floors I installed. Konecto was the brand I've installed.

Keep in mind that these types of floors with a tile pattern will create more waste as you have to match grout lines during the install. Other random patterns or wood patterns have less waste as what you cut off one end, can be used as the starter piece on the next row.

Of further note, Big Orange Box Store has been selling Allure for quite a long time so I assume they are having success with the brand. It is a little on the thin side compared to the ones I have installed. It is residential quality. I almost always steered my customers to the commercial quality which was much thicker and carried a longer warranty.
