What companies make the best (good quality, not fancy) field tile. Is there anything out there less costly than Porcelanosa that is as good as or better? I need it for a bathroom-- white, maybe 8 x 12... Thanks.

Hi Emilia, :)

There are literally thousands of companies that make tile throughout the world, and we import about half of them into the U.S. You need to do some shopping. :D

Any Porcelain with a PEI of 4 or 5 would be best.:)

thank you. I will look at the resources you listed. I'm hoping for a chart or list of companies so that I can find out who carries them. Quality is important because, for instance the Bisazza glass tiles are beautiful and glass tiles are now available from many manufacturers and at many prices, but I think that some are really poor quality. So, not knowing tiles, I wouldn't know what is less expensive and still "good enough". The PEI indication is helpful.
