We're still at the selecting materials stage of remodeling our shower. It has a fiberglas floor pan and porcelain tile (I think) 4"x4" tile. I will be removing the old tiles & wallboard to replace with cement backer board & new tile.
We want to use 12"x12" tile for less grote lines to acheive a more marble-like appearance w/o actually using marble.
Could anyone help with these questions:
1)does using 12x12 tile make for a more difficult job for an amateur like me? This will be my first tile setting project. Are smaller tiles less error proof?
2)what are advantages & disadvantages of ceramic versus porcelain tile as our material?
3) We would like to the same tile on our shower walls and the adjacent bathroom floor because this is a small bath that we are trying to make appear larger. What is the best choice for one tile to do both shower walls and bath floor?
