Brick flooring is very similar to stone and concrete in that it is a hard surface material, that is also permeable and needs to be sealed. However, once sealed it becomes a low-maintenance kitchen flooring option, that only has to be swept free of debris every few days. The surface sealant will have to be reapplied periodically, but as long as that is done on a regular basis, a well-installed brick floor can potentially last a lifetime.
If you are looking for a good low maintenance stone kitchen floor, then you should probably look at materials such as slate and granite. These are very hard stones, that can be made nearly impervious to water with a proper sealing treatment. They are also resistant to scratches and divots, although chips and cracks can appear if a heavy enough object is dropped, or if the floor is improperly installed.
A single major advantage of hardwood is that these floors can be refinished when spills, scratches, and scars start to pile up on the wood's surface. With many types of hardwood, you can simply sand down the wood to get a fresh start. This is not possible with ceramic tile—but then again, tile does not wear down the way wood does.
Ceramic is one of the easiest floors to maintain over the course of its life. Glazed tiles are impervious to water and stains, and even unglazed tiles can be sealed and protected. Grout lines should be sealed annually. Other than this, the floor will require only regular sweeping and damp mopping to remove dirt and loose debris.
