Floor tiling: I am considering re-tiling our floor. When I have been to tile shops they have tried to talk me into porcelain tiles, and tell me they are much more hard wearing. They are also much more expensive, so probably the shops are biased.
But I have been told by people that they are difficult to lay and often crack when being laid, and that we should go for ceramic tiles.
Does anyone have any experience of laying porcelain tiles or have any advice to offer on this subject, as at the moment I don’t know which tiles to look at.
