Tile floors are more difficult to install for the typical do-it-yourselfer. Special saws are required to cut tile, and once the mortar begins to dry, it is very difficult to move them in any direction even for small adjustments. Therefore, it takes a skilled craftsman to make the completed flooring installation look its best.
Tile has absolutely zero insulation properties nor does it do anything to reduce sounds within a room. In some homes, this problem is somewhat solved by the careful placement of area rugs.
Glazed tiles, while simple to maintain, can become slippery when they get wet. This mostly occurs with older tiles, as new manufacturing innovations have created a non-slip surface that reduces this problem. Finally, while tiles can handle heavy foot traffic, they can easily become chipped or cracked if you drop something heavy on them. Moreover, the replacement of a broken tile or two will not be that simple for the average homeowner to accomplish by himself.
