There are a variety of textures you can choose from, but you have to keep in mind where you want to install your new tile, how do you want to look and how do you want to feel. You will see tile from dull to semi-gloss to high-gloss finish, and you will feel tile from rough to rustic to smooth finish. High-gloss surfaces can become extremely slippery when wet and tend to show dirt more readily than a less glossy or textured surface. If you have active children, anyone disabled, or elderly family members, high-gloss surfaces can present a problem. The polished finish (or shine) may last a long time or may be unstable depending on the type of tile, also requires high maintenance to preserve the shine. This category includes granite, limestone and marble tile. The honed finish (or satin) looks very “soft”, shows few scratches, and requires low maintenance. This category includes marble, limestone and slate tile. The acid-washed finish looks shiny and much more rustic in appearance than a honed finish, shows fewer scratches. The most common are marble and limestone, also granite because acid-washing is the way to soften the shine on granite. The glazed finish - a liquid glass is applied to the body of the tile and fired at high temperatures, the glazing becomes hard and non-porous resulting in a floor stain and scratch resistant, easy to clean, which doesn’t fade from sun light. This category includes ceramic tile. The unglazed finish - no glaze or any coating is applied to it, the color is the same on the face of the tile as it is on the back. Very durable tile and better slip resistance, never shows wear (even in the heavy traffic). This category includes ceramic tile.
With so many sizes, styles and textures from ceramic tile to granite to marble, you can turn your kitchen or bathroom into your own personal work of art.
