"The most suitable types of tiles for a wet room floor are Porcelain, Natural Stone or Mosaic tiles. Because of there construction we do not recommend the use of ceramic tiles on a wet room floor, they are however perfect for the wet room walls.

"Whilst ceramic tiles are suitable for wet room walls, we would only recommend using porcelain on a wet room floor. Porcelain tiles are denser than ceramic and therefore less porous, harder and more durable long term. Another important factor when choosing your wet room floor tiles is slip resistance."
