Is it possible to install another type of flooring over ceramic tile?
I have ceramic tile in my kitchen and find it cold and hard on my legs. Can I install anything on top of it without having to pull up the tiles?

it all depends if the ones you have are in good condition to lay another layer on -- 4 kitchen, bathroom. the answer is yes -- lots of material exist. do not take the advice of a runner (carpet) in the kitchen. that is a no, no. otherwise all other options apply. specially the one where cleaning is easy -- with a mop...

You can install Pergo or some other similar flooring. I've done it successfully before.

I would suggest a hall runner instead of replacing the floor. Our kitchen has tiles on the floor. They are beautiful but my feet hurt, when I stand a long time to prepare and cook food. I bought a hall runner (long carpet) it helps and it‘s more comfortable. It looks nice and it’s a lot cheaper.

yes you can as long as the lanolium is still flat. also try to use whatever will be most comfortable for you and what you think will look good for your tasts but make sure you get r done right or you will pay out the ying yang to fix it.

It is possible i would suggest a pergo type floating floor with a foam backing for sound and comfort control. The carpet will not last and the linoleum will show the grout lines in a few months.
