Flooring behind rec room bar


The previous owner installed vinyl flooring behind the Rec room bar in our basement. I was thinking about changing it up with the tiles we installed in our bathrooms upstairs. These looks like they are ceramic roles, but they are not. Any thoughts?

That's sheet linoleum, you won't be able to tile over it.
Take it up and tile on the basement floor.

Well technically you can, but I wouldn't suggest it.
Thinset usually never sticks to it for long, even though it's glued to the slab there are little pockets of air you can't tell by walking on it now but there there. so when you lay tile down and then walk on it there will be movement and that will lead to grout cracking then tiles will soon after shift on you.

Peel and stick but it looks and feels like ceramic. 3 times thicker than regular vinyl.

When we did our refi the inspector wrote down that we have ceramic tiles in our upstairs bathrooms. He couldn't tell the difference.

There's a big difference between ceramic and groutable P&S tile one can bend and one brakes in to pieces.

Looks good, some pros don't like using p&s for what ever reason I put 18x18" In my hallway and office looks nice I think.
