How to Choose the Best Glazed Vitrified Tiles?
The best glazed vitrified tile for any area will need an appropriate selection of three factors – tile size, surface finish, and design. These three factors will change as per the need and following factor:
- Surface Finish: Living rooms and bedroom floors can use almost all surface finishes. However, high gloss, wood matte, and rocker finish tiles are more popular in these areas. The bathroom and kitchen floor should use rustic or matte finish tiles to provide adequate grip even while wet.

Types of Glazed Vitrified Tiles
H&R Johnson offers several types of glazed vitrified tiles. All glazed vitrified tiles have base material made of a mix of clay, feldspar, silica and other minerals as needed. The vitrification process fuses all the elements into a solid stone-like structure.
The glass-like hard glaze is applied on top of this vitrified body. The glaze allows high-definition printing and polishing of tiles into different surface finishes:
- Glazed Vitrified Tiles: Glazed Vitrified tiles are vitrified tiles with a hardened layer of glaze on top. The glazed surface can be digitally printed with high-definition graphics allowing unique patterns and better-than-perfect replicas of natural materials.

Although polished GVTs have a sturdy surface, you should wipe them clean regularly to eliminate dust build-up, which can affect the polish and create visible scratch marks on the surface.
