Yes, it can be. First clean floor with a dish washing scouring sponge pad using a floor product that says don't use on linoleum, to rough floor a little. paint on a primer paint to cover over current design, then paint your design with your color choices, then paint 4 or 5 coats of polyurethane on top. Make sure it drys between coats and after final coat, don't use floor for 48 hrs.

Check out a web site and look under the topic faux decoration. She has a picture where her neice painted her kitchen floors that were laminate to look like stone. I thought they looked great.

As long as you really clean your floors and then use I good primer for slick surfaces, you could paint over them just fine. You will then need to use a good sealer like those from Minwax.
