best bathroom tiles for durability and cleaning

I’d like to have new tiles fitted to my bathroom. What are the best types/materials I should go for when looking for durability? Our previous bathroom tiles developed a lot of problems over the years and we’re looking to replace them as they seem beyond repair at this point. We’d like tiles that are easy to maintain/clean and that are durable. What would you recommend?

"You want porcelain tiles for walls and non slip for floors
Porcelain tiles are easy to clean using soap and warm water.
Floor tiles use non slip always due to water/moisture causing falls slips ect"

All tiles ease to maintain and clean. The biggest problem is with grout joints. The material must be chosen not the cheapest anti-mould one. Then light colours in time will become yellowish or greyish so you can choose right that colour. And tiles must be instaled by all standards with a waterproof membrane and on floor anti-cracking matt apply before tiles hoes on.
Hope it helps, if you need professional tiling service please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Thank you"
