    You want to replace or cover the existing floor covering? Depending on how yours is installed, you may be able to remove it, or you may have to cover it up. That's not ideal, and you may need to work with clearances for cupboard doors and the like.
    In our first pup, the original flooring was so well glued, it was best to just add stick on tile. It worked, for us.

    BTW, if you add the make, model, and year of your pup to your signature line, it helps the rest of us answer. You do that under "Signature" on the drop down menu when you hover on your screen name at the upper right.

    We ended up using floating vinyl. We had planned to use peel & stick vinyl. However, the linoleum was already coming up in the corners. We went ahead and pulled it all off. The glue remaining in some spots made for a slightly uneven subfloor.

    Our vinyl floor is worn. We plan to cover it with something. Thankfully we have a friend in the floor biz and he scored us some Brazilian Cherry leftovers. Hoping to get that in soon. I'll post pix when I do!

    Hi!
    Remove the linoleum, all that you can and need to anyway before any new flooring.
    You will want to see what's underneath just for piece of mind...no rot/soft spots the like etc...
    Cut it away from your interior pieces that you don't want to remove and then add your choice of floor in and around.
    Have fun with it and post some pictures for us!
    Good luck!!

    How did the Brazilian Cherry Floor come together!!!
    Post us some pictures so we can see how the other half camps LOL!!!
