View Full Version : Tiling over concrete

I did a search, but didn't find anything. I currently have linoleum over concrete in my bathroom. If I lift it up and am able to get all the adhesive off and the concrete isn't cracked at all, is level, with no high or low marks.. can I just begin to tile? Or do I still need to put something down first??

ok.. on to my second question. If I tile an area, then rip up the cupboards in that room and replace them with new ones that aren't the same size.. can I add on to an existing tile floor?

As to your second ?, yeah you probablly could do it that way, but seems like that would be going about it the hard way.

the second question is only if I decide to replace them sometime down the road..

If you think you may remove/replace the cabinets in the near future, go a lil' light on the thinset in these areas. It will make life easier when you do the replacements.
