Kitchen, breakfast nook, dining room, parlor area
When I inherited my house, I inherited horrible flooring - white berber carpeting (bedrooms/living room) and white tile flooring (entryway, parlor area, dining room, kitchen, breakfast nook and the area by the back door). I hate the white tile with a passion. it looks dirty ALL the time no matter how often you clean, and every fleck of dirt shows up. I've always wanted to be rid of the tile but just couldn't afford to have it ripped up and replaced with new flooring. I've also always loved hardwood floors, but those would cost me 8-10K. I wandered across these tiles and decided they looked like a great solution to my problems - I no longer have to deal with the white tile, but didn't have to rip it up (which would've been a very upsetting process for my bunnies and sugar gliders) and was able to redo ALL the tile floors in my house for only about $600. I installed the flooring myself and found it easy to do despite my lack of ″DIY″ experience (as a note, I quickly discovered that keeping a *sharp* blade in the box cutters is very important). it's a little annoying when the dimensions of the flooring are such that I hit a wall right where there's a seam in the tiles, but I was able to make it work. I get a lot of compliments on the flooring - it's a little soft under the feet, making it very comfortable, it's easy to keep clean/doesn't show every fleck of dirt and people have commented that you really can't see the seams unless you're right on top of them. also, my new flooring arrived all of three days after I ordered it!
