What type of flooring can you put over ceramic tile?

Thumbtack Editors
Answered

You can put carpet, laminate or engineered hardwood flooring over ceramic tile. Vinyl flooring can go over tile as long as the surface of the ceramic is even and smooth, without any crevices or bumps. 

If this is your first time installing flooring over existing ceramic tile, consider hiring a tiling professional to do the work instead and avoid damages.
