I have carpet and tile downstairs. The carpet is in the foyer, front room, living room, and office. The tile is in the kitchen/dining room, entrance, downstairs bathroom, and around the fireplace. I want to replace the carpet with tile, but I have some questions. Should I try to match the tile that's there already? I think that would look really bad if the tile isn't an exact perfect match. If I go with a different color tile, should it be the same texture? Should it be the same size? I don't know how long I'll live here, so it's important that whatever I do has a pretty universal appeal, in case I try to sell this place in 4 years. Also, what about a medallion? I think those are cool, and it would be awesome in the foyer.
