You're right kyllmann, 1/4 inch plywood wouldn't be adequate support for ceramic tile.
Thank you all for your answers. Iceman, can you give me a brief description of what wuld happen if I were to drop a glass of water onto vinyl? Also, as for the marmoleum, I've been told that the hardness rating for it is 300 as opposed to 50 for regular vinyl (I forget the unit of measurement used for hardness). What does that mean in practical terms?
Does the resielient tile that you are referring to come in a form that looks like hardwood? I have a "shotgun" house and walk over the same areas constantly. I need something durable in the living/dining room combination. Would this work?
