HELP: Kitchen Flooring Layout Advice
This is our kitchen:
We currently have concrete slabs with a runner of carpet on it as our flooring...
Apologies for the poor lighting, my phone photos come out so bad... it's MUCH brighter than that in real life.

The kitchen is small so I'm worried that the "tiled affect" will only look good in a large room because there's a lot to play around with. I have a feeling it will eat more into the room rather than give it the "spacious" feel.
But I'm not so sure if it would look nice with the whole floor being just plain and one big piece?
