Types of Finishes
Polished / Glossy - A glazed finish speaks for itself. A long lasting sheen is added on top of the surface to make it shiny. The gloss helps in upkeep of the surface and highlights the visible grains.
High Glossy - Additional layers of shine are added on top of the surface to give it a mirror-like finish. This finish enhances the colours and grains in the tile design, and makes any space look spectacular.
Matt - A special layer added on top of the tile takes away the shine and makes it anti-slippery. This finish is ideal for spaces with high water usage on the floor, like bathrooms and kitchens.
Sugar - A transparent textured finish is added to the final glaze. Sugar finish tiles are more scratch-resistant than other tiles. Sugar finish adds a touch of sparkle to the gloss.
Wood - Punch Matt - A special coating is added on top of the finish to enhance the colours and grains on the design. This punch finish makes the tile look like natural wood when laid on the floor.
Rustic - Tiles with a rustic finish are the perfect choice to impart a traditional look to any space without compromising on the shine. This finish is widely popular for bathrooms, living rooms, and outdoor spaces as well.
Baby Soft - These soft & baby-safe tiles are a popular choice as kid’s play room flooring, and are also used in home exercise or fitness rooms, as Pilates and yoga mats, and any other area where there are long periods of standing.
