Tiling Question

Should i glue tiles or set into a wet concrete bed?

I am tiling my new home and I have an ensuite upstairs with wet area cement sheet as the flooring. Obviously I will waterproof first, but then should I glue the tiles to the floor and walls? or lay the floor tiles into a concrete bed and glue the wall tiles? FYI I'm using 600x600 porcelain tiles for Floor AND Wall. Any help is greatly appreciated.

From your question i highly suggest you hire a professional. Wet areas are tricky enough even for someone who knows what they're doing let alone someone who's thinking of "glueing" them down. A wet room floor has to fall down to the drain & tiles don't bend I'm afraid so they have to be cut very precisely in all the right places so everything just falls into place.
600x600 porcelain only adds another level of difficulty, don't ruin it by attempting it yourself & pay a pro.
