  • I always go with ceramic tile or slate, something along that line. It's durable, doesn't stain, doesn't dent, doesn't rip. LOL. I've redone every kitchen I've ever had. And, getting ready to do the one in my current house. They have been the lowest maintenance, most durable floors ever.

  • Tile- stone, ceramic, porcelain, but NOT linoleum!

  • We have porcelain tile, which is great. I had complaints about keeping the grout clean, but about a year ago, we had the grout color sealed. It cost about $400 to have that done, and it was worth it! Now the grout will not stain. It's just slightly off white and it still looks brand new even in the high traffic areas. I just wipe or steam clean.

  • We have porcelain tile in the kitchen, and ceramic tile in the bathrooms and basement; we've had the grout sealant mixed in as well before application and have never had any problem whatsoever with the tile itself or the grout. I swear, tile is the way to go!

  • Having had black floors I would suggest dark grey instead. Black is particularly unforgiving, just like white. I have dark hardwood and use a steam mop and it is pretty easy to care for.
