Why would you want large tiles? A large tile size makes it easier to order and install while ensuring that more of your walls and floors are free from seams and require less sealing. Large tiles should last longer as they'll have fewer gaps which expose the edges to the elements.

Why use tiles for floors?
Should you use ceramic tiles for flooring instead of hardwood and carpets?
We have a wide choice of flooring: various carpeting types, wooden panels and ceramic tiles. But what are the benefits of ceramic tiles for flooring? There's a reason we frequently find tiles in bathrooms and kitchens - they're highly water-resistant. They're also very durable and cracks are relatively rare. A well-looked after tile could easily last decades. Maintenance consists of keeping grout clean and resealing from time to time but that's about it. If cracks do occur then replacing single tiles is all that's needed.
Daily dirt and grime can be swept or washed away with ease while designs are endless owing to a multitude of colors and flooring patterns you can choose from. Cost isn't usually an issue although high-end tiles can be as expensive as hardwood and high-grade carpets although tiles should easily last longer.
In this day and age another consideration is allergens. Dust and pollen are attracted to carpets and some carpet materials are less people-friendly than we'd hope. The ability to mop and wipe clean ceramic floors makes it easy to prevent harm to allergy sufferers.
