Lappato tiles have a softly polished finish, featuring a higher shine than matt tiles but a gentler finish than a traditional polished porcelain tile.
This gentle polishing process, lappato, takes its name from the Italian word for "semi-polished" or "honed", and that's exactly the effect you get with a lappato tile.
If you're looking for the perfect balance between a matt and polished tile, a lappato finish gives you exactly the look you're after. What's more, tiles with this finish tend to be more slip resistant than fully polished porcelain tiles - making them a great choice for floors even in bathrooms.
Lappato tiles undergo the exact same polishing as classic polished porcelain tiles. The only difference is that these tiles aren't polished for as long, which leads to their softer finish.
