Whether it’s a subtle grain, a non-slip surface or a 3-D geometric pattern, texture can enhance your tile design in many different ways. Non-slip textured tiles are practical for use on mudroom and entryway floors that are prone to get wet or muddy, perfect for busy households.

Finish

Tiles can be finished any number of ways, and it’s important to know what you want and how to care for it. A rectified tile has a perfectly smooth 90° cut corner, while a pressed tile is one that is first pressed in a machine and then baked so the edges are not quite as sharp. Most porcelain floor tiles are glazed meaning they have some sort of finish or coating on them to give them a certain look. Unglazed tiles are just a baked clay surface and should be sealed.
