    We have been installing tons of that vinyl plank flooring. I seriously believe it will make laminate wood obsolete in a few years.

    Really it’s that good and nice looking? I’ve never seen so I don’t know.

    I have it in my kitchen. Seems to be holding up good. No worry’s with water damaging it like laminate.

    That’s good to know. Never even heard of it before the post about it here.

    I would think it fine to change directions from one room to the next, but I agree you need to have something more than a butt joint to transition it. I like the room border idea.

    I have never done that before. It would be interesting once you measure it out to see how it lays at the center point of the room.

    That’s a very interesting topic. I have never though that long floor planks can make a room look like a bowling alley. And i see the point, in some cases this may be true. Thanks for pointing his out.

    I know this thread is pretty old but since there was no real answer to the structural integrity question I figured Id throw it out there. If its a glue down vinyl plank and not a locking/floating floor then you can run the planks any way you want. Just be sure the subfloor is ABSOLUTELY smooth at the transition point. If its a floating vinyl plank then you’ll need some sort of transition piece to turn it. We do this pretty often with both types based on layout. I always prefer to run strip or plank flooring of any kind longways down a hallway and then turn it in adjacent rooms if it calls for it due to layout or aesthetics.

    Over here they usually pour down some self leveling stuff to make the floor very smooth for the glue down flooring.

    Just curious is fibre floor the same as laminate or floating? I will have to Google that.

    I think it is from same as linoleum, from what I see on the site.

    Neither do I. First time I have seen that word used in conjunction with flooring.

    Interesting. How does it look? Like tile or wood?

    Tackett calls it a “new take on linoleum”, so is it a sheet product or planks?

    OK I see fiber as in fiberglass. Somehow I thought it was a eco friendly fiber.

    sheet, rather roll product. it looks like tile or wood or rock. it looked so good I nearly bought a house with the kitchen done in this style. it looks so good and real. I was really impressed. I happen to walk into home depot when they put a couple rolls on a huge discount, so I bought what I needed to do the kitchen and the bathroom, i’ll probably have some left over for somewhere.

    Wow that floor looks great and the features make it sound like a very nice option.

    Yeah, fibre-floor sounds amazing actually. I’m surprised they didn’t come up with different materials for residential flooring sooner. The world of textiles is constantly changing, I guess building materials will adapt when it’s cost effective to do so.
