How do you judge tile quality?
I recently went looking at Home Depot and Lowe's for tile for a small bath room (about 5'X6') and saw a wide range of tile prices. I was mainly shopping for a simple look, and price wasn't a concern given how small the space is. I've located the colors and sizes I wanted. The shower floor would be 2"X2" porcelain tiles (at $8/sqft) and the shower walls and the floor outside the shower would be 12"X12" porcelain tiles (at $1/sqft). The 2"X2" tiles are Italian, and the large tiles are Chinese. I love the look of both tiles, but I was surprised at the low price of the Chinese tiles. Is there any reason to be concerned about quality with an inexpensive porcelain tile, especially for a light-duty guest bath?
