Newbie to Tiling
 
Hello everyone

I'm new here and wanted to introduce myself.

Anyways, I just purchased a 3,000 sq ft house in the Las Vegas area and before I move in I'm going to be ripping out the carpet and putting all tiles downstairs. The seller agreed to pay $5,000 towards the flooring.

Currently, the kitchen has ceramic tiles. Would it look tacky if I were to put different type of flooring everywhere downstairs (Dining room, living room etc)

Or should i just rip out the ceramic tiles in the kitchen and make everything match?

I say do what you like, what makes you happy. But in general I think you want to stay with only a few themes or styles rather than do a boatload of different styles. There's a point you reach where there's just too much going on - know what I mean?

Thank you all...

One more question...

Since the house is 3000 sq feet was built in 2001. The original carpet is there. Should I buy new carpet or should I deep clean the carpet?

I'm only thinking of this as an idea because I want to leverage some of the money for the flooring downstairs.

Hard to tell without looking at it.
it will save you money in the short term to just clean it.

it would save you even more if you just left it alone...
