Hardwood and ceramic have similar merits, in that a good, well-cared-for installation can last for years. Modern ceramics can now be shaped and printed look like many different species of hardwood flooring.
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.
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 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.
