tiling bathroom

A particleboard subfloor is not recommended anywhere in a tile installation sandwich, and so I'd recommend you use a different type of flooring.

Having said that, I know it has been done before. It probably worked well some or most of the time? So do it if you want, but don't be surprised if you have at least a partial failure if you do?

Of course the lino and the thin (1/4") underlayment if any, need to be removed first.
