Jean,

I thought about painting or staining the concrete, but the more I read about it, the more scared-off I became. It takes a good deal of prep and drying time, and I just don't really have the time to do it.

Goofy, I like your idea of saving tile. I have looked at the luxury vinyl tile, and it's about as expensive as a cheap ceramic. I will have to have it done, I don't think I'm up to learning how to tile at the same time I'm trying to get the rest of the house painted. I don't have much help, so it's easiest to just hire it at the same time I get the other carpeting replaced.

Looks like my best bet might be to just put really cheap ceramic in there right now, and plan on just tearing it all up when I get ready to remodel, or follow your suggestion of buying extra tiles. I'll have to look at the prices.

Thanks for the suggestions,

Rita
