Our home was built 10 years ago and now we need to update and make repairs. We are trying to tdecide what to do.

We want to remove the carpet and put down title throughout the house, but this is very expensive. Is there anyone out there that can tell me how to do this on our own?

Then, I thought it would so inexpensive to remove the carpet and use the concrete under it for the floor, but how do you do this and do you advise it?

Is there one particular brand of tile to use over another for quality?

If you are in a place where the weather EVER gets cold, you'll not want to use the concrete pad as the floor. It'll be very uncomfortable for both temperature and your heating bills, not to mention hard on your feet.

I am also considering faux finish for concrete floors in the entire house. I think that there are to many problems with carpet for those with allergies or just concerned about the environment.
I found the answer on how to Faux finish floors, concrete included while on Bob's site and clicked on a Lowe's advertising sign that was flashing. The site was www.lowes.com/howto/howtodocument/ and I searched for Faux finish for concrete floors.
Hope this helps. Angels in your pockets, Reta
