talk to your local home center,go over your cocerns.as a general rule tile is a do it yourself project/lino should be done by an installer. tile is harder,but you have a seam every 12". sheet vinyl (lino) is 12' wide this often means no seams.
I agree with carpet man too. You can get and do yourself the 12" square tiles that are self adhesive. It is cheap however their are many more seams to trap and gather dirt. it will look good for awhile however eventually the seams will slowly get worse.....begin to spread and trap more dirt. You might have someone install sheet linoleum if ou plan to be here for awhile and do not want to worry about all of the seams. Good luck
