    Have you considered a laminate floating floor over the tiles? I believe from what I have read that if you use a good underlay to level it, it's not an issue.

    You can find them on the Dulux website.

    My first challenge is getting rid of the cream walls and cream laminate on the kitchen benches. We're still 4 weeks from moving...I'm going to bunnings tomorrow...I'm very prepared! But will post photos, probably begging for advice, once we're in.

    yes I looked at it, but I don't want the height differences into the bedrooms.

    Hopefully that image works.

    We used a light warm grey - Taubmans Grey Fog half strength

    Other goods ones are Dulux White Duck quarter strength and Dukux Whisper White

    Just to throw another colour in the mix- Wattyl 'feather white' - it is a stone colour, no yellow, cream or pink in it at all- you can do double strength is large very light rooms, and half strength in the bedrooms. It may look light, but once you try it in patches when compared to the ceiling white, it is a stone colour.

    Personally I find whites and creams boring besides not being very child friendly.
    We had timber rustic colour floorboards in our old house with red oak wooden furniture with a leather lounge suite that was rustic coloured too, we painted the lounge room in suede effects paint which was a dark apricot colour. It was gorgeous and warm toned.
