Lino on slab floor

Could anybody tell me what would be the best thing to put under lino in the kitchen of my slab house? Something for cushioning/warmth. K3? Thanks.

you cant install anything cushiony under a resilient lino. Lino needs a firm flat stable surface.

you can however shoot or screw plywood onto the concrete, cover that with a flooring grade underlayment, then the lino, which will be less of a cold feeling when walked on.

Another consideration is a high quality carpet tile.

They are amazingly stain resistant, very durable, water resistant, and comfortable with a give in their cushion-type rubber backing.

Interface makes some of the highest quality carpe tile around.

Radiant heat.
The vinyl would have to come up and the heat mat escapulated in a slc.
It would raise the floor about 1/2.I Did this very thing in my personal bath.
I removed the tile and put a suntouch mat down then emmedded it in slc and laid vinyl plank over it.No cushion with this application.

My wife chose the viny plank. I will be reinstalling ceramic shortly.I dislike the plank look.

They sell a heavy vinyl called glasbac vinyl but I would not reccommend this although it does have a thick cusion and it can be overlaid about any floor.
You can find this about any floor store.

So radiant heat and glasbac vinyl+ Cusion and warmth.
It is doeable just not adviseable.
