Just wondering if I can use the same tile that I'm putting on the floor to surround my shower. I have 16"x16" porcelain tiles.
you can use the same tile just different morter and grout
If using honed tile or mrble make sure use sealing to seal the tile after grout and the grout must be unsanded.
Also the gap between tiles must be very small.
You can absolutely use the same tile for your shower walls. Using shower mesh (thicker) and thinset coat the joints, flats and inside corners. This prevents water from leaking through the joints. The grout if sanded must be sealed. To apply the tiles use a thinset or modified mortar. Grey thinset dries faster a white will give you more work time. Your first course the bottom has got to be perfectly straight.
