Thanks for all the replies. It's for a hallway so there would be a seam if I went wither sheet. From what I've read there's been alot of negative reviews towards the floating vinyl floors. Which makes me lean towards the sticky tiles.

Daltonbrain were you referring to sticky tiles when you said a fully adhered plank floor?

Has anyone else had positive or negative experiences with these tiles?

Then there is also a seam to consider if the room is bigger than 12x12
You can make a template for the floor by taping heavy paper together to cover the whole floor to fit all the nook and crannies and then lay the template on top of the sheet and cut it out, perfect fit.
