    tile requires special tools to cut it, a special base to set it in, and grout. If you want to change it out's messy to get up. Peel and stick...easier to cut, no grout needed....solvents to remove the adhesive. Both treatments work better on a level floor. If you like the tile, go for it. Some big diy stores have classes on how to lay tile and cut it.

    Depends on the look, durability, cost and feel that you want to achieve.

    Since you are going to have to take up the linoleum to do any renovation to the floor, might as well go with stained concrete. Home Depot sells self-leveling cement, saving you the trouble. Peel up the old flooring, scrap off remaining 'debris'; clean well, lay down cement (if needed, if your floors are pretty level, skip this); buy concrete paint, then paint floors; let dry, follow instructions; apply second coat if needed; apply sealer, let dry, second coat if needed; done. Relatively easy and cost effective, easy to clean and maintain. We did over 1000 sq. feet for under $250, love it!
