The drawbacks of ceramic tile flooring are minimal. Most often cited is the fact that ceramic tile is cold and hard. The coldness can actually be an advantage in very hot climates—which is one reason why it is often found throughout the home in Southwest residences. But tile can be "warmed" and softened by using rugs, or by installing radiant-heat systems below the floor.
One of the major differences between the two options is the price. Ceramics are much less expensive than real solid hardwood flooring installations. Ceramics also tend to be easier to keep clean and maintain over time, since they are less susceptible to water damage and staining.
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.
Glazed ceramic is generally going to be the right choice if you want a low maintenance, stain resistant, hassle free floor. However ceramic is not a completely natural product, and while it can mimic the look of stone, it is not able to fully reproduce it. For this reason, people often opt for the less durable natural option, in order to increase the authenticity of the environment they are building.
