While vinyl is much thinner than ceramic, it also takes on the characteristics of the subfloor that it is installed over. If it is laid on a hard surface such as concrete, it becomes like a second skin, hugging so close to the solid strength below that animal claws will have trouble finding purchase to puncture or tear its outer layer. At the same time vinyl is also a much less expensive choice than ceramic for a commercial veterinary or boarding house location, although it doesn't tend to last as long.
Subway tile has become hot in the last few years with the return of industrial style design. However, that doesn’t mean you have to stick to plain white. A unique look for subway tile that’s gaining popularity is bright colors. Greens, blues and purples are making an appearance in rooms small and large. For a sophisticated look, try marble subway tile backsplash accented by bright colors throughout the room.
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.
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.
