Ceramic tiles are made from a mostly clay mix that is fired to create a very hard, durable material, that won’t break or crack even under great stress. This is often then coated with a melted glass glaze layer which adds to the strength of the piece, making it virtually impervious to stains, water penetration, and any accidents or scratches that a pet may bring into the kitchen. Like vinyl, ceramics can also be printed to take on a wide variety of colorful or faux natural decorative patterns.
The drawback to ceramic tiling in a kitchen is that the floor is very hard. If you are a fan of long marathon cooking sessions, this could be a problem as the surface beneath your feet can affect how your entire body feels, with the pain and fatigue growing greater with every step you take. That hard surface can also be a problem for rambunctious puppies who come running into the kitchen then go sliding across it as their claws can’t find purchase.
