Analysis

Compared to other general floors, they are quite beautiful, but resource intensive and add a significant amount of Wealth to the colony. While it is a trivial-to-defend way to improve area beauty and cleanliness, its practical use as flooring is limited. It is considerably more efficient to construct sculptures to improve room beauty in most circumstances.

There may be some merit to its use in defensive areas, such as killboxes, where non-flammability is important, where more beauty will improve the mood of colonists in combat and help prevent mental breaks occuring at inopportune times, but where sculptures would be at risk of destruction. The clean time factor can also help against blood.

Fine flooring

Silver tiles are surprisingly competitive as a fine floorContent added by the Royalty DLC, which are all resource intensive. Impressiveness weighs heavily towards the lowest stat, so the small Cleanliness of silver and gold tiles help. Gold tiles are 10x more expensive - while more beautiful, sculptures are usually a superior form of beauty.

  • Silver tiles have the same beauty of fine carpets, while only being 6 Silver Market Value higher. Meanwhile, silver tiles are much faster to construct, have +0.2 Cleanliness, are 333% faster to clean, and are non-flammable. However, cloth is easier to grow in massive quantities when the biome supports it. If the cloth needs to be bought, then silver tile usually comes out ahead.
  • Fine stone tiles are also nonflammable, but only have +3 beauty and no Cleanliness. Stone takes longer than even fine carpet to construct, and creating stone blocks is a time-consuming task. The main appeal is that stone is very cheap; stone is nearly always available, and fine stone has half the wealth of silver. Fine stone floor also has a cleaning time of 80% (25% more than silver).

Note that carpet requires the separate Carpet making research. Both silver and fine stone require the Smithing instead, a pre-requsite for many other essential projects.
