Holes in porclean tile

We renovated our bathroom with Porcelain tiles and now we need to install accessories. Like Towel Hanger, Grab bar and also after installing my parents wants the tub faucet which i closed on valve. So need to put holes for accessories and 1/2 hole for pipe for faucet.
What is best way to put hole and what tools are recommended? I heard its best to use the drummel but what brand bits i would use. I tried with BOSCH diamond bit for screw but even though i used to spray continuous water it burned out twice. so seeking some advise .
Thanks for your help.

Just to let you know I got the bits from ebay and they worked great.
10pcs 6mm 1/4" Diamond Coated Core Hole Saw Drill Bits Glass Tile Ceramic Marble just for $6.89.

How did you drill the needed 1/2" hole with a 1/4" bit ?

I assume the 1/4" refers to the shank that goes into the chuck. I've never seen a 1/4" hole saw

When ever I needed to cut or drill holes in any tile be it ceramic or Porcelain I just use the usual drill bits or saws for that purpose. Usually they are diamond dust coated.
