Stone tiles are too shiny

Stone tiles are too shiny

When a customer buys a stone tile that’s produced with a honed surface, it is most likely by choice because she does not want any sun or images reflecting from the surface.

 

One such customer had installed into her home over 150sqm of large tiles but they were laid in such a way that it resulted in a lot of lippage. She recruited a professional stone restoration professional to remove the lippage from this floor so that the floor could be maintained a little easier. Although the specialist did a phenomenal job at levelling out the tiles, for some reason he finished the job by leaving the floor with a shiny surface. After a few years of tolerating the excessive shine, the customer called us to see if we could hone it down again. It took a couple of days because we had to sand it down first before restoring a honed surface.
