Polished boards, which undergo a machining process. Unpolished slabs that undergo an incomplete polishing process. Polished porcelain stoneware slabs that have a fairly high specularity. Rustic porcelain stoneware tiles, which are made using artificial aging technology. They are all quite durable and enduring, but vary in price. In any case, it is up to you to choose.
