Difference in the cost of tiles

    We've been looking at the prices of floor/wall tiles and they seem to vary hugely (from say €10/sqm up to €300/sqm) with most being in the €20-80/sqm range. With other materials, at least some the cost is related to quality and how long you'd expect the product to last. With something like tiles, obviously you don't generally expect them to break so I'm wondering what you're paying extra for in a €50/sqm tile compared to a €10/sqm tile? Is it purely aesthetics? The method of manufacturing? Or is there a practical difference in these tiles e.g. slippiness, prone to cracking, ease of cleaning, etc.
