Does linoleum need to be glued down?

Is it easy to lay Lino?
Sheet vinyl is quicker to lay than tiles. Unless your room is very large, you can usually lay it in one seamless piece, which looks better than two or three strips (although it can be more difficult to fit). You can work out how much you’ll need by calculating the area of the room and adding 50mm-100mm to each edge.

Do I need underlay for lino flooring?

How do you get linoleum to stick down?
Spread an even coat of flooring adhesive onto the underside of the linoleum with a putty knife. Flatten the linoleum down and roll it with a rolling pin or brayer to help affix it more securely. Wipe away any excess adhesive that may have bled out from under the edge of the linoleum using a damp rag.
Can you put linoleum over concrete?
