none of our products are anti bacterial but since they are made of PVC it is considered one of the safes products when it comes to growing bacteria. Most of our products have a satin finish but we do sell a high sheen cleaner and polisher in Home Depot that will give it a high gloss look.

The floor wouldn't typically be "flooded" but stepping out from a shower onto the floor needs to be safe. Do you believe it would be slip resistant enough to feel "confident" when stepping out from a shower?

The flooring had many simulated nicks & indentions & "wrinkling" as part of the manufacturing design which was not apparent via the web view or the small (4" x 7") purchased sample. I would like to know which models (wood simulated, not tile) of this Allure Ultra flooring have a smooth finish, without the simulated nicks or indentions. Can I tell that from looking at that product specifications?

Felix by now you probably already know
One thing depends on the type of floor you are putting it over. The floor needs to be solid and if on concrete you need to seal the concrete ,if you have a bad wood floor it needs to be repaired so it is solid
You can start in one corner of the room and lay one piece down andrun the length of the room making sure it is straight. When you start the second row I suggest you cut a foot off and run it all the way up on the third row I would cut two foot off and run it all the way up .then start back with a full piece and run all the way then next row cut again then next row cut and then next row will be full again
What you want to do is stagger the ends so that they are not in line.Youc an cut the pieces any length you want just I suggest keep them the same .You can cut them smaller if you like and just have more
lines in the floor

I can't answer the warranty part of your question. However, I would, to be on the safe side, put down a vapor barrier. Home Depot sells a heavy duty plastic on a roll. This should keep out any moisture or mold from forming on your flooring.

I don't know about joining two boards at a 45 degree angle; but, we did have to do 45 degree cuts for a cabinet set at an angle. We found it was easy to make the 45 degree angle by scoring the board at the desired angle, resting the board on a hard surface with the score lined up with the edge of the surface underneath and snapping the board. It gave a very clean, straight cut on the desired angle. I suspect the same method could be used to join two boards at a 45 degree angle.
