removing glaze from porcelain tile
The tile store mistakenly ordered a glazed porcelain tile instead of the matte finish I'd requested, and I didn't catch the slip until the floor was already installed. I can't stand the shine - it clashes with the cottage look I was going for. The store rep is looking into a product he says can remove the glaze and restore the tile to its matte finish, but I'm worried it will damage the tile or not work. On the other hand, ripping up the tile and installing new tile would be more costly than the tiles and I'm guessing the tile store will fight footing that bill. Any advice/input on removing the glaze would be greatly greatly appreciated -- I am so disappointed and frustrated!! Thanks!
