Why you wanna rip it out? Just looking bad and used up?
Yes it’s glued down and pita to remove. Mine was changed by former owner but I don‘t like it as it’s too dark.
I will just put vinyl fake wooden click laminate floor for bathrooms over it. Only the last one at the stairs will be glued down, Rest just click.
There are 3mm thick ones with composite backing out there. I am tall so every mm headroom
counts for me. The backing is important not to be wood

Suggest highly to get really a well known brand waterproof for bathrooms and alike and top spec for UV stability from a specialized store and not the cheap
stuff from DIY
Home Depot. It’s not a huge surface, so get best quality you can buy or order to your location. Got that tip from a friend who done this 3 years ago on his 380 Lagoon
