Can I place vinyl sheet floor on top of tile instead of hardwood floor?

Hello,

I have about 400 sq ft of kitchen floor that looks like the attached picture. But my wife said it's hard to clean and maintain. I am thinking about using the following vinyl floor roll to cover up the tiles. But not sure if it's doable or not. Because the tiles are not 100% flat and the vinyl may not be able to stick the tiles properly.

Any recommended solutions are welcome. Please let me know if more info needed.


Thanks in advance.
John Z

I have done it for customers. Just don't expect it to look pretty.

I thought so too! Any recommendations? I can remove the existing tiles and replace with square or rectangle large size of the tiles, which should be much easier to clean. But how can I make the floor flat? I did it for one of the bathrooms, a small one, and I don't like it much It's like 20, 25 sq ft in size. Let alone the kitchen, which is much bigger.

Thanks.

You could put LVP / LVT over the tile floor if it is flat enough. The small voids that would show through a thin sheet of vinyl likely wouldn't be a problem for the LVP / LVT. The mfg has specs for how flat the floor needs to be when checked with a straight edge. Most LVP / LVT will have its own underlayment attached to it making it a snap to install. You'd likely want something waterproof. And if you gave a dishwasher you'd want to ensure that it will still fit if you put flooring all the way under it. Most are adjustable up to a point.
