Ceramic tile is the go-to choice when you need durable, stain-resistant, easy to clean flooring. The inherent strength of the materials means that they won’t break, crack, or chip even when handling the largest of pets. At the same time, the glazed glass layer that is manufactured over the surface makes the otherwise vulnerable fired clay material impervious to water penetration and accident stains.
Ceramics are also "natural" in that they are made from natural clay materials, but they are manufactured by humans through a process of casting and firing. They are more durable, and easier to maintain than natural stone tiles, as they can be made permanently impervious to moisture through glazing.
With vinyl and rubber, the maintenance of the floor will generally be fairly simple. These materials are resistant to most stains and water damage so you don’t have to worry about long term damage. You will want to wipe up soap spills so that they do not cause a slipping hazard, and you never want to immerse these surfaces in liquid as it can seep down between the seams, damaging the subfloor and or wearing at the glue holding them in place.
Rubber comes with a variety of inherent advantages that have made it an extremely popular flooring option for commercial, high-traffic environments. And now that it's available in a wide selection of colors, patterns, and textures, this material is also finding its way into residential interior and exterior applications. However, these advantages are balanced by a series of drawbacks, which are important to understand before making a final decision about your flooring.
