Yes, you can put a new floor on top of an existing one

Renovating your home? It’s important to display your own taste, wouldn’t you say? The previous owners might have, for instance, installed a perfectly levelled floor, but the tiles remind you of your grandmother’s kitchen – in a bad way. Good news: you can keep the floor, and simply put another one on top.

A new floor on top of an existing one

Keep the stability, add your taste

You don’t have to go through the hassle of breaking out your entire floor, just because you don’t like the tiles. Just put a new floor on top of the existing one. This way, you get the best of both worlds: you keep the stability of the old floor and just add your own touch. Don’t worry about adjusting doors or thresholds: most vinyl, laminate and hardwood floors are so thin your doors only need a minimal adjustment.

The right underlay does the trick

Are you putting a new floor on top of an existing one? Don’t forget to use a suitable underlay. The existing floor has to be properly levelled. With a soft or hard underlay you even out the small imperfections. If your floor is extremely uneven or some tiles are loose, you might want to consider another option.

Do it yourself

The best thing about installing a new floor on top of an existing one? You can easily do it by yourself. Just buy the materials and get started!
