Then porcelain it is. It is becoming as common as regular ceramic. More companies are making it, the price is down and the variations of design and color are way up.

Now, tell us what kind of flooring is going to be under the porcelain. Getting the subfloor right will make the tile last for a hundred years. Getting it wrong will wreck the floor in under two years.

Is it wood framing with plywood over the joists? If so, how thick is the plywood and what is the size and spacing of the floor joists (i.e. 2x10 @ 16" on center?) Or is it a cement slab? What is on the floor now?
