Has anyone seen or used cermic tile used in a bedroom, not the wood floor look, just colored tile. Wife wants it I'm afraid it will hurt the value of the house, any suggestions or opinions?
Thanks

Value is in the eye of the beholder. Really depends on who is looking at the house. Tile the floor, get some nice throw rugs. Wife will be happy, and so will you.

If you're going to tile your bedroom, take the opportunity and go nuts with heated tile. Look into Suntouch, Nuheat, or the many other vendors of radiant heating.

When I did my bedroom, I put in a corner 2-person jacuzzi tub, fireplace, and a walk-in closet along with a whole bunch of tile. Just make sure to choose tile that will not be slippery when wet. Even though you might not opt for a tub. I imagine the bedroom will be the first place to go after someone takes a shower.

It also depends on where you live. Southern states love tiled floors as where northern states not so much. So if you live in the North, I would forgo tile. It may not hurt the value of your home but it will not help the value. In other words, a potential buyer would look at that tile floor and think about the cost to replace it. I live in the midwest and tile is only found in the kitchen/bath areas.
