Can you install ceramic floor tiles over vinyl floor tiles?

You can buy mortar that works on old vinyl floors. But I wouldn't recommend it. Assuming that you are going over OLD vinyl floor, you also have to assume that the glue holding the vinyl floor down is OLD and probably failing. Keeping that in mind, if you go directly over the vinyl floor, you are basically asking the OLD, possibly failing glue to hold down not only the vinyl it was originally holding in place, but now the ceramic floor above it. You will be seriously cutting down the lifespan of your new ceramic floors. This is what will happen... as the glue fails, areas of the floor will be come unstable, start moving and fluctuating, this will cause the tiles to become loose, eventually crack and/or start breaking up the grout in between the tiles. This may not necessarily happen immediately, but more than likely you will find yourself repairing tiles or re-grouting just a couple of years down the road. If the vinyl is on a concrete slab, I would buy a scraper and scrape up the old vinyl, then install the ceramic tile directly on the concrete slab. If the vinyl is on a wood sub floor, leave the vinyl floor, but install cement board directly over the old vinyl. This will give you a nice, stable surface to install your ceramic tile on.
