    Curious to what others have used for laminate hardwood flooring in the pup. Did you lay it directly over the old vinyl or did you pull it up. Thinking of replacing the floor this spring.

    we went with peel and stick flooring ,and put it over the old linoleum. So far, so good. It's lasted one season so far, with no issues.

    Save yourself a lot of work and headache and lay it right over top the old stuff. That's what we have always done in the past.

    This time, we pulled up the old vinyl due to having to fix some spots in the floor, and the laying of new peel and stick was a big pain. It didn't want to stick to the old wood.

    We pulled the old vinyl off. It was already loose in the corners under the cabinets. Those spots turned out to be where we some subfloor issues that had to be fixed first. Then we pulled out all the cabinets and dinette.

    We had originally planned on peel & stick planking. However, once the old vinyl was off, as Orchid noted, the subfloor was a bit more uneven with a little glue here and there. So, we opted for the pricier floating vinyl.

    It looks great, but boy was it a bigger project than we anticipated.
