Hello. As a tile professional I am of course biased toward tile or stone flooring. I have ripped out many commercial carpets that were torn, stained, and faded from excessive wear and replaced them with tile. Tile and stone are very durable and easy to clean and maintain. If you want maximum durability at a reasonable price, go with porcelain tile.
