Carpeting over tiles - stick on tiles or stretch in?

2021.09.20 12:42 RoyTheGeek Carpeting over tiles - stick on tiles or stretch in?

So I'm moving into the flat next door to ours (me & mum), but there's a lot of work to be done on it. One thing I've been thinking of doing, both for looks and for acoustics, is carpeting.
The current floor is this old, "authentic" tile, which I feel really dates the house in a bad way and highlights how wonky the building is.
From my research, I've found these 18"x18" carpet tiles with adhesive backing that you can just stick on, but I'm not sure if that would be the best way to go. Postage for those is pretty wild, and I've seen some reports of the adhesive being pretty weak. The alternative is the "real" carpet route, which requires tack strips and stretching. No worries about adhesive, no seams, extra softness due to the padding underlay. I'm not strictly opposed to installing tack strips, I'm just not sure if it can be done without damaging the existing tiles. I'm also a little worried about the tools required for stretching the carpet, like a knee kicker or a power stretcher. They can probably be rented, but as a DIY job for a beginner... not too sure if it's a wise way to go.
My goals for the carpet, put simply:

Due to my budget and to reduce the overwhelming factor, I'm going to start with just the bedroom, but in the future, the rest of the house has a couple extra challenges. The main area (kitchen/dining/living room) has this drain, not sure if it should affect the carpeting choice, and the other bedroom has had a pipe repaired in the wall, leaving this mess behind. Not sure if I should try to replace the broken tiles or just carpet over that, as well.
One small extra wonderment, what do I need to do with the existing doors? Would I need to remove them and cut off some of the bottom so they can move with the carpet installed?
Thank you all in advance!

Im reading books about the mongol conquests and it seems to me literally every other region people fought hard against the mongolians but most of the turks just surrendered and became slaves why? You guys literally destroyed the roots of the persian empire with your cowardice.

Just as the title says.
If anyone has a video to link a clip of Grian’s spectacular communications skills please add them in the comments!
All I know is that BuildMart will always be a place for CEO of BuildMart, his Parkour Tag with Pete (I think MCC 14), and his ability to suggest courses of action like recommending or just asking. He’s a good leader and follower so any good follower Grian clips are allowed too!

2021.09.20 12:42 Denim-Chicken-90 Worked as a Bartender for a decade and had a record breaking customer tonight

This guy comes in, he immediately orders 300 dollar bottle of wine I start presenting it and he says I’m easy you don’t have to do all that and then ordered 250 dollars worth of food and told me not to course it out but just let it come whenever, he doesn’t care. Then in an hour this person ate about ten different menu items and two bottles of top shelf wine. He poured the wine himself and clearly stacked the dishes he was done with making it easy as possible for me. and then bill was like 700 dollars he just dropped 2,000 dollars worth of 100 dollar bills and strutted out the door.
Il still in shock at what happened. I never made anywhere close to a tip like that. I’d this normal in fine dining restaurants?
