i agree, if looks aren't a problem. go to local carpet places and pick up old samples. they are 1x1 squares. that way you just pick them up and rinse them when they get dirty. otherwise i think homedepot sell the same kids of carpet for cheap. walmart has the carpet squares also

When finances were tight for us and we needed new flooring we went with putting down a pine wood floor. Dh put it down himself, using masonry nails for an asthetically pleasing look, we did a quick sanding and stained it - the total cost for the area we did was $500. To put cheap carpet on the same area a few years prior was $1000.

Just an idea


Good Luck, whatever you decide!

Another option you may want to try is purchasing several large area rugs. I know stores sell 5x8 ones for $15-20 if you want to go inexpensive. The only downside is that there really isn't a lot of cushion.
