Raw brick fabulous floors

I've got raw brick floors in my entrance and i've been trying to get my hubby to do something over them but we can't seem to find any thing really nice. i've been doing some research on brick floors to see if there is any hope.....Instead of pulling them up i' thinking i need to work with them ... here some really beautiful brick floor options !!! 
i might look at giving them a wash down effect, love these options although my bricks are very red and i'm not sure i'll be able to change the color much !

Delft Tiles - blue & white dreaming

Next obsession this week following on from the blue & white portugese tiles are these amazing delft tiles from the netherlands

Delftware or Delft pottery, also known as Delft Blue, is blue and white pottery made in and around Delft in the Netherlands and the tin-glazed pottery made in the Netherlands from the 16th century.


Delftware in the latter sense is a type of pottery in which a white glaze is applied, usually decorated with metal oxides. Delftware includes pottery objects of all descriptions such as plates, ornaments and tiles.

Now where to put them in mine ?????
