Vinyl is a relatively new surface covering, which has only been developed into flooring in the past few decades. It is a man-made material, similar to plastic, with many of the same resilient and resistant properties. This makes it proof against almost all staining agents and makes the surface relatively easy to wipe clean of spills and splashes. Vinyl is also a tough flooring material that doesn’t easily rip, tear, or scratch.
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.
Ceramics are also "natural" in that they are made from natural clay materials, but they are manufactured by humans through a process of casting and firing. They are more durable, and easier to maintain than natural stone tiles, as they can be made permanently impervious to moisture through glazing.
With vinyl and rubber, the maintenance of the floor will generally be fairly simple. These materials are resistant to most stains and water damage so you don’t have to worry about long term damage. You will want to wipe up soap spills so that they do not cause a slipping hazard, and you never want to immerse these surfaces in liquid as it can seep down between the seams, damaging the subfloor and or wearing at the glue holding them in place.
