    Hi all,

    I have a concrete patch left where tiles previously used to be, in a room that is mostly wooden flooring. I'm trying to decide what to do with it - options I can think of include:

    1. Paint it a neutral colour (but will still look out of place)
    2. Cover it with a small rug (might look a bit random!)
    3. Cover it with some sort of wooden chest/trunk
    4. Try to retile it (but then will still look weird I think have a random tiled patch in the room)

    It's in front of the chimney brickwork.

    Honestly don't know what the previous owner was thinking! Any ideas appreciated.

    Is it not an old fireplace? Maybe knock it through?

    It'll have been there since the house was built probably - it's a safety thing with an open fire, like an extension of the hearth. It might be a stone slab on a brick base (ours is), in which case you could perhaps try lifting it and filling with wood flooring.
