The porcelain tile is 1/4" thick & that is the MAIN tile for the bath. The slate tile is 3/8" thick and that is the center piece (4 total tile pieces - they are 2"x2" squares bound by mesh as a 12"x12" tile)

I understand that it's 1/4" thick. How BIG is the tile? Is it 12x12? is it 2x2? How BIG is it?

The porcelain tile is 12x12 and the slate is also a 12x12 piece BUT the slate tile is composed of smaller 2x2 tiles held together in a mesh.

Okay. That's what I needed to know. What you might do is to use two different notch trowels when setting the floor. use a 1/4x1/4 notch for the slate, and a 1/4x3/8 notch for the porcelain. You'll probably have to notch trowel both the floor AND the back of the porcelain to get it up to where you want it to be, though, but I'm sure that playing with it a little, and you'll figure out what it will take to get the two of them flush.
