Q: I'm currently in a rental (7 months in), in which I plan on staying in for 5 or so years. My landlord has granted me permission to paint, refinish, and re-do as I please, since it's nearly impossible to make this unit any worse (it was a high-rise university dorm for 30 years, and has since been taken over by a local property company, in the midst of a major remodel). My issue is with the tiling in the bathroom.

It's heinous. I could live with the tiling around the bath, but they used the same WALL TILE for the floor! There are chips and cracks everywhere, and I'm not quite sure I want to take up the floor. Is that my only option? Painting is out of the question, since it's so high-traffic. I am beyond stumped on this one.
