I've never heard of the brand Nirvana, however DH and I installed Armstrong and Wilson laminate throughout our house several years ago. The boards actually have a texture to them and the color we chose looks like real wood. So far as installation goes: it took us about two days to do three bedrooms and the hallway on our last installation. If you measure carefully before you cut, the material will fit snugly across the floor. That being said, if you don't measure carefully, you can get gaps. I absolutely love the ease of care with this stuff. Vacuum and damp sponge mop or use a Swiffer Wetjet and it cleans up easily. However, if you've been living with carpet and have pets, you might be surprised at the number of dust bunnies that suddenly show up when they no longer have the carpet to hide in!
