    Here is an example that shows how big a difference this can make. Left is just a background, and inner wall (with bevel) and a floor. Right is exactly the same thing but adding a slight shadow to the wall. See how it makes a world of difference? The one of the right looks like it has more depth and is "sunken" into the background texture.

    Sorry about the craptastic textures used, but i am at work instead of home where I have better stuff.

    .....mmmmmm..... Default gimp amethyst.....

    Yeah - what he says about a shadow would help.

    Also, try a rendered cloud layer over the floor layer, set in overlay. That will break up the repeating pattern of the floor a bit.

    Damn you Rob!! You made me come back to this. I went one up and in addition to the floor/background overlays, I also added:

    Small selection filled with 50% grey set to burn
    Larger Selection filled with white set to Difference
    Bump map on the background.

    There... are you happy now?
