How Professionals Deal with Uneven Tiles (lippage)

Jan 18, 2017

Home 9 Interior Design 9 How Professionals Deal with Uneven Tiles (lippage)

A problem that can occur when laying a new tile floor is the tiles are not always exactly flush with one another. This is especially common when installing a floor with smaller tiles and intricate patterns. This problem of an uneven surface is referred to as Lippage. Even the most professional and talented tile layers can see lippage in their final product. Fortunately most natural stone floors can be ground flat to eliminate the areas where some tiles are higher than others, creating a flat and flush floor.

We were recently contracted to even out a beautiful marble tile floor in a master bath renovation. Grinding the floor requires skill and attention to detail. See the final result above! You need to make sure you get the floor as level as possible without taking some tiles down lower than the rest. Lippage is annoying but not a problem that can’t be fixed.
