The structural strength of a ceramic tile is based on how hot the fires were when it was baked in the kiln. Higher temperatures will result in more durable materials, such as porcelain, and a glaze can help prevent scratches. Natural stone also varies by type of material, with granite and slate being much harder than marble or limestone. However stone can have hidden faults in individual pieces, and some materials may be prone to chipping along the edges and at the corners of the square.
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.
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.
