I am interested in sprucing up my kitchen on a budget (!!) - it has a ceramic white tile (12x12 tiles) floor that I'd like to change without having to break it apart and take it up. Is there anything that I can do to "cover" it? I'm open to any and all suggestions!

Thanks!

Hey there.
The one bad thing about ceramic is it's a pain in the butt to remove.
There are a few options if you consider using a floating floor.
The most popular would be laminate which comes in many different colors and wood grains.
There is also a interlocking vinyl tile that works great also.
Both these types of flooring can be installed over top of ceramic tile.
Thanks for stopping bye and good luck
David

Try these materials to cover old ceramic tiles:

Oil or urethane-based paints
Tile Over Tile by using cement-based thinset mortar to bond the new tiles onto the old ones.
Installing beadboard over the ceramic tiles.
