Can you put vinyl tiles over ceramic tiles?

Normal Installation. If the grout joints are flush with the face of the ceramic tile you can install the vinyl tiles directly over the top of the existing tile installation. You can use self-adhering vinyl tiles for ease of use, or you can go with the old-school method of installing tiles in a bed of adhesive.

Also asked, can you tile over old tiles?

Photo 3: Set the tile. If your old ceramic tile is worn or dated, you can lay new tile right over the old, and avoid the huge job of tearing out the old tile. This assumes that the floor underneath is solid (concrete) and that there are no cracks in the existing tile (indicating underlying problems in the concrete).

Can you install tile over painted walls?

Getting Started. You may tile over existing tile, painted or unpainted drywall, plaster and textured walls. However, tiling over tile can add quite a bit of thickness, so make sure your wall can handle the weight. You should not tile over wallpaper, glossy surfaces, lead paint or plywood.
