I put a floating floor in my basement, about 1000 sq feet. It's made by Formica, it looks like 12x12 tiles, comes in 1 x 4 foot sheets, clicked together, (I used glue in the joints as well) and went down quickly. Hardest part was cutting all the door jambs. Looks like ceramic tile, is almost indestructible, supposed to be 10 times harder than Formica counter top material, and is a little resilient under foot (has 1/8 inch foam vapor barrier underneath) and looks like it did when I put it down 10 years ago. Suitable for below grade applications. I think it was $4 per square foot in 2001. Have no idea what it would be today. I'd use it again in a heartbeat.
