    Porcelain is out unless you want to be slipping and sliding all over the place.

    Concrete will age, and gradually get dirty, and every time you jet-wash it, it then gets dirtier quicker

    Natural stone will tend to stay cleaner for longer, and not wear as concrete does - but avoid sandstone as thats a bit soft and performs like concrete.

    Real stone (Ethan Mason) never really ages or weathers because you can clean it to look as good as new.

    Hmmm, but it does seem to randomly change colour. :cautious:
