Interlocking tiles provide numerous pattern options, a wide range of colors, and good cushioning. Tile squares come in different types--solid, perforated, and drain tiles--and their embossed surface patterns provide good traction and durability. Tiles commonly measure 12x12" or 24x24" and most systems include beveled pieces to transition to nontiled areas. This system installs in a matter of hours.

Sturdy vinyl composition tile (VCT) has more color and pattern options than any other flooring covered here. VCT must be installed with an adhesive, but its extreme durability and low cost make it a contender.
