Nothing looks better than ceramic or porcelain, whether your tastes run to stone or wood lookalikes or brilliant colors and surprising patterns. Ceramics score high with regard to maintenance, too, but they are not nearly as comfortable to the bare foot as vinyl. Installing radiant floor heat helps to change that, but a hard surface is hard whether or not it’s warm. Ceramics are not as easy to install as vinyl, though it is a job the adventurous do-it-yourselfer can tackle. When protected with a high-grade glaze, ceramic will resist wear and scratches. Porcelain tiles are harder than clay-based tiles and may have through-body color, an advantage if chipping occurs.
Mosaics can be very environmentally friendly and many today are made from recycled glass and other “found” objects. As for durability, as with any installed tile project, especially on the floor, it’s all in the preparation. With proper installation, mosaic bathroom floors will last a long time; after all, some have been in existence for thousands of years already!
