The home decorators collection of the antique brush, Hickory vinyl, plank flooring. We got this from Home Depot and mostly the reason that we chose it instead of choosing another product was because we needed something that affordably would be pretty cheap to put in, but also that would last all of our boys and our puppy and whatnot. And you can see how nice it looks, but I do want to tell you just a couple things about the product. First of all, the product is a vinyl plank, so basically it lies down very easily.
It's got an interlocking method and the two fit together. The two pieces: you have a pretty much like a male and a female, and I don't know if you can see this little seam here, but that's all this team that you should have you really should have them butting up. You stagger them when you place them in, so that your Heights are different. You see that so that one's way down there and that one's over here and over there - and you really want to put them in so that they're staggered that they've got a seamless fit and they also aren't going to look like they're completely lined up.
Now, I'm going to show you another room where we put them in and we did not glue the parameter on this other room, and here in the kitchen we glue the perimeter. You can see how nice the joints look. We've got some trim. Still you get that we've got to do, but basically it looks great and it's completely watertight. If you do not glue the perimeter, though it will start walking away. Let me go into your other room here and I'll show you the difference. So this is another room that we put it in, and I had a couple team boys helping me put it in and you can see how this here is not watertight.
When these gaps are shown, you're still going to be able to get some water seepage in between. So what we're going to have to do is we're gonna actually have to pull this floor back up. We're gonna glue the perimeter all the way around and then we're going to have to tamp it back down, making sure that we tilt the vinyl flooring at a small tilt so that they match perfectly and then they'll interlock. So you can see the difference between the kitchen floor that I just showed you in this dining room floor and it's well worth you know. If you put down and you're like, oh, no, I didn't lose a perimeter or I didn't lock them in the right way.
Go ahead and pull it up, it's an easy process, yeah, it's a pain in the butt, but it's nice to have it done and have it done correctly so that you won't get any water. So that's my review on the antique brush Hickory of the home decorators collection at Home Depot, and I really like this product it hasn't scratched. I think the easiest way to keep it clean has definitely been the steam mop. Let me take you back over here where I just steam not, and you can see how nice and clean it looks. It really does not scratch.
