I'm not a tiler but porcelain is better than ceramic

Not necessarily. Depends on what area it is to be used for.


porcelain tile is made of finer clays, it is denser than ceramic tile and more durable, but this also makes it harder to cut. ... Porcelain tile is generally more expensive to buy than ceramic tile. Because it is typically more durable than ceramic, porcelain tile is ideal for flooring and heavy-traffic areas.

Tilers charge more for fitting porcelain tiles as it takes more time to cut it.

Got them on my kitchen floor...no problems. Porcelain is less likely to be damaged than ceramic.
Just had these tiles fitted in my new bathroom. Lovely tiles

So you agree then. Porcelain is better

I am not an expert. Fitting on walls won't make it a better option as per my understanding.
Porcelain is a better option for more traffic area floor as it is hard wearing.

No. Not for walls!
I am having my cloakroom done at the moment. My fitter advised me to have ceramic tiles for the wall. And Amtico for floor as it not cold or slippery.

I still dont understand why it would not be okay for walls. Apart from harder work for a pro

Porcelain has no extra benefit for walls. Porcelain is also heavy.
Porcelain is over the top for walls, when ceramic tiles will also cover the wall, without any comprises.

Porcelain is better for heavy traffic floor.
You also need cement based adhesive for porcelain.

They are fine for walls, will last a very long time without changing in appearance,less water penetration than ceramic tiles. Yes they are harder to cut and very hard to drill through, but you buy a porcelain blade for your angle grinder or wet wheel tile cutter. Straight cuts are fine on a decent tile cutter and a tiler shouldn’t charge a huge amount extra over ceramic. The only thing you need to be careful about is when you use large and very heavy tiles on a wall because their are limits on the plasterboard loading, but these tiles are fine. also I would recommend a one part flexible powder adhesive with porcelain tiles, but then I would use this with most tiles over the ready mixed bucket crap, if you want them to stay on for a very very long tome

The plasterboard in our house are useless, don't need a drill or hammer to push a nail or a screw!
The ceramic tiles that we use used in the both bathrooms are the polished type surface & touch wood , they look the same as when they were new.( No signs of wear or discoloration). I used a sealant for the grout as per recommendation.

No harm in putting porcelain tiles on walls as long as your plasterboard can handle the load. Just ensure to use the correct adhesive.
I was quoted more in labour costs if I had chosen porcelain compared to ceramic.
I have Mermaid panels in the shower area as it is an even surface & easier to use a squeegee on it- we live in a hard water area.
(Mermaid panels had worked out more expensive than tiles).

Beg your pardon, quite right. Still think they're good!
35767045-yR3wY.jpg35767045-4MQes.jpgHere's ours
OP, thanks a bunch. I just collected 24sq/m to do my bathroom. It's been 6 months since I gutted it, so thanks for making it worth the wait!
Could anyone tell me if they're to slippery when wet?
