Ceramic tile is a scratch-resistant material, one reason you often see it in busy, communal areas. Even furniture with metal legs or heavy ceramic pots won’t damage the floor. Ceramic tile is also low-maintenance, perfect for how much foot traffic a room like this is likely to see. Beyond its functional uses, tile is also gorgeous. The two-toned hexagonal pattern in this room relaxes the atmosphere, making this a room where you can sit and talk comfortably. The nearby walls also use ceramic tile, in coordinating gray rectangular slabs.
