lino over concrete floor


I've got a guy in ripping up the tiles in our kitchen so that we can have lino fitted (because the kitchen is so cold underfoot).

The dilema is, the lino is due to be fitted on thursday morning. What do you think is the best thing to do to prepare the floor?

The builder thinks it'll be ok to clean up the concete and lay directly on top.

My dad says it would be best to put a foam floating floor with boards on top so that it would be warmer underfoot.

Or perhaps would just putting boards down make a difference to how warm the floor feels.
