You're on the right track now--painting tiles on the floor, and other things
that will see a lot of wear should be done in more permanent materials--mosaic
tiles, etc., and won't cost you much if you do the work yourself.

In fact there a show on TV this weekend on a woman who covered nearly every inch
of her home in tiles, glass and trompe l'oeil painted surfaces--like doors
etc--fun surfaces. I guess my advice to you is to use proper materials that are
designed for the wear they'll be subjected to and use paint sparingly.

Best wishes,
Joseph
