hex tile choices for bathroom

jmflakeOctober 17, 2011

I want to get 1" hex tiles for my bathroom floor. I am confused about the terminology used. What are the differences between porcelain and ceramic; glazed vs unglazed; matte finish?; if glazed is OK-does this assume it is not a matte finish? I want something durable, not easily stained and not too slippery. Please help!!

You normally would want for a hex tile...Matte finish ceramic that will be glazed. It is a typical normal bath tile.Many companies make them.

I am selecting a matte finish for mine. I bought the small samples of each and tested them out in the bathroom for a while (walking on them, cleaning them, etc) I think the matte is a better look for my home personally, but didn't notice a huge difference with the glazed as far as slippery / not. I think that all smooth tile will get slippery when wet - marble and glass will be really slippery and textured less so.
