Natural stone refers to a variety of materials which are extracted from the earth and then processed into architectural elements. This is important because different types of stone will have different properties. Marble and onyx, for instance, are very soft, easily scratched, and can be stained by liquid agents.
Ceramic tile is the go-to choice when you need durable, stain-resistant, easy to clean flooring. The inherent strength of the materials means that they won’t break, crack, or chip even when handling the largest of pets. At the same time, the glazed glass layer that is manufactured over the surface makes the otherwise vulnerable fired clay material impervious to water penetration and accident stains.
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.
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.
