How do I give my ceramic floor a glossy look?


I have ceramic flooring in my kitchen. The finish has become very dull. Is there something I can apply to give it a glossy look. Floor wax didn't work.

    Not really, anything else you apply will peel. Kichen tile not really supposed to be shinny. Could be slippery .

    Did you try the paste floor wax? Apply in sections and buff with your buffer to bring out the shine.

  • Hi Sandy,

    I read that you can seal the floor with a gloss sealer. Here is a link to an article that can help you.

    Not really. Anything you put on will wear off in time. Maybe it just needs a good cleaning.

      Thank you William, that's just it, the floor has been scrubbed so much over the years that the sheen is gone.

    The surface of tile are heat glazed. Only way the sheen would be affected is acidic chemicals were used to clean the tile.

      High traffic use in one of the busiest places (kitchen) in a home causes wear and tear over time.
