There are a lot of similarities between ceramic tiles, and the various natural stone materials that are available. They are both hard surface flooring options which are durable, reliable and can last for years in numerous environments. The key difference is a melted glass glaze that can be applied to ceramics in order to protect them from damage and stains. This covers the natural feel of the material’s surface, replacing it with any image the manufacturers can think of, even certain types of stone.
The hardness of a ceramic tile floor may be an issue in a home where there are small children or elderly people susceptible to falls. Here, large area rugs may be a good idea—or you may want to consider carpeting or another softer flooring material, such as cork. For many people, though, ceramic tile flooring should be strongly considered living rooms and other family spaces.
Concrete is generally an inexpensive flooring choice if you are in a first story locations, however, it will need to be treated to make it suitable for a space that is frequently trafficked by animals. This requires the application of an appropriate concrete sealer, on a semi-regular basis, to clog the tiny hidden pores in the face of the floor. This protects the material from liquid penetration and stains, creating a solid clear surface that you can then scour clean as necessary.
Rubber is water resistant and will be impervious to most stains, although there are a few chemicals that can cause blemishes. It is also naturally slip-resistant, and it comes in a variety of thicknesses, many of which provide padding that can make these wet environments much safer.
