What is Lappato?

Lappato is an Italian word for semi polished and they certainly have a look of their own. The amount of polish varies depending on the overall look of the tile.

Most lappato tiles are easy to identify as they have two depths.

One level is normally shiny and reflects light, the other level is matt or even course by feel.

This makes for a tile that both reflects light with some anti-slip properties. This delivers a surface that feels the same as a polished surface with less shine creating what we call a Honed look.
