I agree with the others. One possible solution although you may consider it permanent is to visit a carpet store for Remanents. Yes, they have them big enough to cover a room or 2. The carpeting doesn't necessarily have to go from wall to wall. You may have seen Persian-type Rugs layed out on nice, hardwood floors. Usually, they're only big enough that they're 2-3' from the walls. In your situation, it's the same principal. And if it's temporary, you may consider nixing the padding.
Just my thoughts. My best to ya and hope this helps.
