The virtues of ceramic tile for bathrooms and kitchens are well known, but many of those advantages also make it a good choice for living rooms. Ceramic tile is durable and easy to maintain. It can handle even the highest traffic locations without showing much wear. Spills, chips and other accidents really aren't an issue provided the floor was installed correctly. And the design advantages are undeniable: modern printing techniques give you a wealth of aesthetic options for creating a floor that is truly unique to your living area.
Natural stone materials exist as a chemical base. Because of this, you have to avoid the use of any acidic cleansers, as they will cause a reaction in the stone which can result in a permanent stain. Sealing the surface will help to prevent this to some extent if spills or splashes occur.
The structural strength of a ceramic tile is based on how hot the fires were when it was baked in the kiln. Higher temperatures will result in more durable materials, such as porcelain, and a glaze can help prevent scratches. Natural stone also varies by type of material, with granite and slate being much harder than marble or limestone. However stone can have hidden faults in individual pieces, and some materials may be prone to chipping along the edges and at the corners of the square.
Ceramic tiles are used in both wall tile and floor tile applications; they are softer and easier to cut than porcelain. Non-porcelain ceramic tiles are usually suitable for very light to moderate traffic and generally have a relatively high water absorption rating, around 4%, making them less frost resistant and they are more prone to wear and chipping than porcelain tiles.
