This will determine the correct technical properties for the floor tile required for your chosen room; such as a wet room floor tile will need to have Anti-Slip properties.

There are differences between Glazed Porcelain, Porcelain and Polished Porcelain.
Porcelain Tiles are very hardwearing and durable with high water resistant properties.
A Glazed Porcelain Tile a has an opaque to transparent coating that has been fired to the tile biscuit. This type of tile has a vitreous (glassy, transparent, clear) covering on the face of the tile, which is waterproof.
Polished Porcelain Tiles are un-glazed tiles that have been polished at the final stage of production giving it a shiny, polished surface. *We would recommend sealing Polished Porcelain tiles for extra protection. Lithofin KF Protective Impregnator is a product we would recommend for this process.

You can also use the majority of floor tiles on your walls. Don’t be put off with using the larger sizes. Larger size floor tiles give you less grout lines for a more seamless flow giving the illusion of space and is perfect for open plan living. Smaller size floor tiles also have many benefits, e.g. more pattern layout options such as checkerboard whilst also having extra grout lines which gives your floor extra slip resistance and great for tiling smaller floor spaces.
If you’re looking for Glossy finish to your floor tiles we would recommend Polished Porcelain tiles. For a matte finish Porcelain or Glazed Porcelain floor tiles would suit. One is not better than the other but do take into account the Anti-Slip properties of floor tiles as this will affect what tile surface you should not use.
