    Hi Linda,

    You can but keep in mind the existing linoleum floor has to be perfect with no indentations, bumps, or ridges. Anything showing on the geography of the existing floor will be seen on the new tiles.

    Yes you can. Make sure that you use an adhesive primer first. Even if the tiles are peel and stick you will still need the adhesive primer. You can roll it on with a paint roller. I used two coats. It dries fairly fast.

    a better choice, although a little more expensive is LVT tile. it clicks together, goes over with no prep.

    LVT stands for Luxury Vinyl Tile. Not all of which clicks together. Most are peal & stick just like regular vinyl tile. A very few are stuck down with a separate adhesive and then grouted, even though they are vinyl. The main difference is that LVT is usually larger—16x16, 12x24 or greater. I haven't used any, just been reading about them because I need to re-do my bath.
