We bought a house in the forrest 2 years ago. We put in a light blue carpet and a red leaf pattern vinyl in the kitchen. Repainted the whole house. We live in the forrest, snow, mud, plus pets. Carpet was ruined within a year and we hated the new paint color, so we repainted the entire house AGAIN, and we decided to pull the carpet and put in tile (big mistake). The whole house with the exception of the kitchen is tile, 24x24 in tile and we HATE IT. We are on stilts on the lower half. The floor was plywood, they laid down the 1/4 tile board screwed it in then mud to lay the tile. The tile is also uneven, there are dips and corner raised in some spots. Its a disaster. What do we do now, there is no way we can pull up 1800 sq ft of tile, can we carpet over it? What about the wood look vinyl they have now? Cost is a factor, this will be the third try in just over 2 years. Suggestions would be appreciated.
When you say "they" laid the tile, does that mean a contractor or other professional installer did the job? If so and they failed to properly level the floor, why not have them return and remove it, free of charge?
WRT using tile in general, I don't normally think of it for snow country. It sounds a little cold. Is that why you dislike it? Or, do you dislike it because of the improper installation? Or the color or some other reason?
You might receive more responses here on the boards, if you post photos of your spaces. Hope everything works out for you.
