we are looking to do new floors throughout quite a few rooms. Is it relatively easy to lay wood/bamboo flooring on top of tiles, or is it better to go to the extra expense or removing the floor tiles from the start?
Thanks in advance,
Welcome to Workshop @KatyS. It's great to have you join the community. I hope you find it useful and fun, and I look forward to you posting more about your projects.
I'm sure community members will be keen to promptly assist with your flooring question.
Hey @KatyS, you're definitely better off removing the old tiles. In fact, I'd say 100% do not even consider laying new flooring over tiles. It's messy, but you should be able to DIY it.
Once you get the first couple of tiles up you should find it pretty quick and easy to lift up the rest. So the only expense apart from your time is removing the rubbish. Do you know what surface is under the tiles? Whatever it is it should be a lot easier canvas for the new flooring.
