Vinyl Floor tiles for kitchen?


My grandparents want a new kitchen floor. They have old vinyl tiles which are separated and some are damaged. They want me to install a new cheap and easy floor. Their kitchen is really small also. Can I lay new peel and stick vinyl tiles on top or should I remove the old flooring? Are vinyl peel and stick a good choice here? Ive installed laminate before but its been a while. any tips or recommendations are greatly appreciated!

Peel and stick is never a good idea.

Peel and stick will be cheap and easy, but it's definitely not what I would consider a quality product. You could take it a half step further and get the groutable kind. Being a kitchen you aren't going to want any cracks between the tiles for spills to creep into.

Hi,

I had laminate floor before in my kitchen. Two months ago I installed vinyl tiles OVER the old floor and I didn't encounter problems since this day. It looks like paving, and we really appreciate it.

Keep me informed !

It will never be a good idea to just peel and stick vinyl tiles on some areas that needs attention. Since you mentioned that vinyl floor tiles in there were already old then I suggest why not remove the old flooring and install new ones.
