A very inexpensive quick fixer-upper is stick on tiles. They look nice, are easy to install, and work well as a temporary solution. They are also great for first time apartments or college dorms. Ollie's has a bunch and so does Lowe's. We have become regulars at Lowe's since buying the house. I can even "kind of" find my way around now.
The adhesive backing can become a hazard. A few tiles stuck to our feet and the sticky residue stayed on our hands. Thank goodness for Goo-be-gone. If you don't have any you have to invest. This stuff is amazing and is so useful for everything.
