Stained Concrete is a great option. You will not get a solid color, it will vary, but as a whole, it is very attractive. I have a friend who recently pulled up the carpet in his foyer and living room, and stained the concrete with a brown color, then sealed it with a concrete sealer. It is really cool looking. I've never seen it done in interior residential applications before. Sure, the hairline cracks show, and their is a discoloration because of the imperfections of concrete, but in a way it looks sort of "marble-like".
