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.
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.
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.
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.
