Looking for any input or experience with porcelain floor panels 15 x 60 cm. 
Will be installed in a kitchen and exposed  to human and canine traffic. 
Thanking those in advance for taking the time to respond. 
Finish on panels will emulate hardwood flooring.

When you say porcelain floor panels, you mean the porcelain tiles that look like wood?  If so, I don't know why they would be different than laying any other tile. It's a good look and pretty popular these days.  Wife overruled me when we recently picked some bathroom time....which is my next project

Yes, roughly 6” x 23.5” / tile. 
Agreed, they look good and if installed properly, hold up to every day household kitchen traffic.

Thanks for the reply.

I like the hardwood look tile, put it in my hall bath 2 years ago.  It was the thing to do then, cant speak on whether it still is or not.  A bit trickier to get the tiles flat but my end result is flat.  I love it.

I was just looking at those tile planks in the Depot wondering how weird it would be to do a kitchen counter backsplash with the gray or cream pattern ones vertical.

Probably look just fine, as well as the serviceability aspect.

It's hard keeping up with fashion. What I think looks fine, medium wood cabs, dark granite top and faux slate porcelain backsplash, is considered outdated. I'm sure the stone pattern porcelain floor is hopelessly out of fashion too.  While the wood pattern tiles looks fine on the floor, I wouldn't do it in a place with real wood also, I think the clash would be jarring.

Nothing in that photo looks outdated to me either.

Agree as well with the thought on probabilities of clash.

A thanks to you and wingsandwater for taking the time to post.
