Ceramic tile is a most attractive floor covering and, believe it or not, can be installed directly over a vinyl floor. It's easy.
First, use a belt sander to clean and score the vinyl. Next, apply two coats of bonding agent. This will help the mortar stick to the floor.
As with any tile job, the most important step comes next -- layout lines. Always start laying tile from the center of the floor and outward toward the edges. Keep it simple by using premixed mortar and work on one small area at a time.
A day of drying is needed before applying grout. After grouting, apply a light vinegar wash; it will make your job shine.
