With ceramic flooring, you get the look, feel, and strength of natural stone in a tile that is also manufactured to be impervious to moisture penetration. Cleaning can be done by sweeping, vacuuming, or damp mopping the surface, with spot treatments being handled when necessary. You also don’t have to worry about sealing the tiles themselves, although applying a coat to grout lines can help to cut down on the growth of mold.
The hardness of a ceramic tile floor may be an issue in a home where there are small children or elderly people susceptible to falls. Here, large area rugs may be a good idea—or you may want to consider carpeting or another softer flooring material, such as cork. For many people, though, ceramic tile flooring should be strongly considered living rooms and other family spaces.
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.
One of the major differences between the two options is the price. Ceramics are much less expensive than real solid hardwood flooring installations. Ceramics also tend to be easier to keep clean and maintain over time, since they are less susceptible to water damage and staining.
