    If you are talking about laminate flooring, it can go over just about any nearly flat surface. If you mean hard wood over vinyl, I believe you can if you have a good sub floor. If you mean hardwood of ceramic tile I would say that would not be recommended.

    Ditto Jack's post.

    You haven't provided much information.
    If you are talking about nail down hardwood over ceramic it ain't simple and consider the extra thickness ------ also depending on the room ---- say a kitchen adds to considerations of extra thickness for cabinets and appliances.

    Thanks Jack and Canuk,
    It is on a slab. Over the slab is a square tile (I believe it to
    be asphalt). The kind you don't want to mess with. I now have
    carpet over the tile. I would like to put down plain old pine
    wood over the tile. Then to paint is with a pattern. My daugther
    did this in a bedroom. My floor is in a bedroom, so not a whole
    lot of traffic.

    I have done it in my kitchen. Just glue it down right on top of ceramic tile.
