Our new home here in Arlington has a lot of tiles throughout the entire house. It does have quit a bit of carpet as well, but not in the areas where I think that carpet should be. Some house, mostly the more upscale houses, have carpet in the kitchen and in the bathroom areas. Why this looks nice if you have children it can be chore in its self to keep clean. In my opinion it seems like it would have to shampooed once a week or several times a week to keep it clean and dry. Since we all know what happens to carpet if it gets to wet and stays wet for a while. So for us no matter what the circumstance we will have kitchen tiles in the kitchen and bathroom tiles in the bathroom.
Our bathroom floors are tiled as well as the shower areas, but I think that all the ways in the bathrooms should be tiled. I don't know to me it just looks cleaner and more resilient to splashes and other things. So what do I think would be a good tile for the bathroom. I think some sort of stone tile would look nice in the bathrooms and for the kitchen some style of subway tiles would look neat and probably have many of guests asking why we went that route. That should make for some real interesting conversations.
For the mean time we will just stick with we have, but we when have the funds necessary we would definitely like to upgrade our kitchen and bathrooms tiles.
