It would have to show EVERY little smudge, scuff, etc. Seems like having a more forgiving color / texture makes more sense, which is what we've always opted for. I think if we *did* have a shiny ceramic tile floor, we'd be inclined to cover it up w/ runners / rugs. If you love your shiny white ceramic floor, talk to me. I admit, they look very foxy, but....maybe I'm too practical.
Many of the new fancy DP coaches come with the tile standard. I'll admit I had white tile at my house many years ago that I could not wait to get rid of. It showed every little hair an piece of dust on it.
With the tile in the new coach, it's not the same for us. Doesn't show crud like the old stuff we had at home. A quick Swiffer mop once in a while keeps it looking very shiny. Of course we do have a couple throw rugs like we do at home in front of the sink etc.
WHat I hated even more in our last gasser was that dirty carpet that had dirt ground in, spills that would not clean up and no easy way to clean it. Could not get rid of any smells that got into it.
