  • I live in military housing too, ALL tile. We went to the furniture store and found 2 feet by 2 feet squares that you just put together of carpeting. They were 120 for 10 squares. You don't have to actually stick it or tack it to the floor. I will post a pic. Maybe you can find it online. You can keep the carpet forever. And because of the size of the squares, its easy to move the room around how you like it.

  • oh and, i hat my tile too, because when they buffed the floor before we moved in, thy didn't clean it first, so the buffed the dirt into the tile. So it permanently looks dirty. I really hate the how they ruined the tile.
