Which Tile to Choose?

I'm going to be installing tile (either ceramic or slate) in my entry hallways, laundry room, kitchen and bathrooms. After going to different flooring stores, seeing all the different makes of tiles and getting different advice from sale reps, I'm finding it very difficult to choose a product. There are so many different manufacturers - how do you know if your choosing the right one.

So, I'm looking for recommendations for good tile manufacturers.

Any ideas anyone?

I can't help you on brands, but I would go with ceramic or porcelin, as I don't like the extra maintenance with natural products like slate.

Leona there are so many names on the market for ceramic tile it is impossible for anyone to keep up with all of them so don't feel bad. The brand names don't mean too much these days I don't think. If you choose a "porcelain" tile you won't go wrong.
