Default Carpet over Tiles?

Our apartment has tiles everywhere... as in in the bedroom, living room... just EVERYWHERE. We also live on the groundfloor and there is next to no isolation under our floors so they are FREEZING.
Our apartment is at the moment is colder inside than outside. Which during the summer is great, but right now, during the spring, while the heat is off its a PIA.
We're thinking about putting down carpet over the tiles in the living room and the bed room this fall to keep the apartment warmer - has anyone done this? I realize it could become a problem with the doors - but we can put the hinges up a bit.

I'd probably throw some nice rugs down

I wouldn't do wall-to-wall with tack strips and backing and the other assorted crap that goes with it. Area rugs are easier to clean as well.

I really love carpet tiles, they are small, stay put well, and you can buy more than one to create the look of carpeting without actual carpet

I know people that have done entire rooms with them and it looks great

Oh yes! The carpet tiles are an awesome option! I like FLOR's stuff, especially.

I put area rugs everywhere. I love them, and you can roll them up and mop underneath and have them professionally cleaned(if you hate the idea of spills lingering like I do). LOL.

We thought about getting area rugs, but our dining/living room is REALLY small and they'd have to overlap and I'd fall. alot.
Carpet tiles are an awesome idea, esp. since the tiles stay put.
