Tile in living room: fugly or nice?

I am getting rid of the horrible pet-stained carpet in my living room and am considering replacing it with tile. Is this a completely crazy idea?

I currently have wood laminate in the kitchen/dining area, which flows into the living room. It's still in reasonably good shape. Originally I thought I'd just do the living room in the same laminate, but the color and brand have been discontinued and I do not want a so-so match (and I am told that so-so is as good as it can get). Putting another shade and grain of laminate next to the current one looks wrong, hence the tile solution. A friend is adamantly opposed and says it will look horrible because tile is for bathrooms and kitchens. It's none of her business, I know, but it's giving me pause. I'm not particularly skilled at interior decorating and would prefer my living room not be fugly or strange. Your thoughts?
