What's the best type of flooring to put down in a foyer?

It is a ground floor walk in that is presently vinyl tiled over older tile on a cement sub flooring. Its 15 yrs old and needs to be updated. I would like to put in hardwood floors, but can't afford it. Not sure if a faux wood Laminate would stand up to dirt & water being tracked in. Afraid of ceramic tile, that it would get cracked/ chipped. Any ideas?

    we did 12 inch ceramic tile in our split foyer last summer. I love it! It was the hideous parquet before that. If you get ceramic tile that has indents built in you wouldn't be able to tell if something happened to it. lol

    Tile over a concrete slab is about as robust as you can get. to help keep it looking good from gritty dirt get a decent sisal door mat for outside the tuft kind not woven.
  • A laminate floor would work quite well there Mare, There is a lot of options depending upon your decor. As stated ceramic floor is great also.
