How to make polished porcelain honed

Hello, I have a customer that has polished 12x12 porcelain, and wants it to be honed. What is the best process to make this happen? Any advice would be appreciated.

Tony- It might be possible...but even with a soft stone like Travertine it is a very involved, time consuming process especially in an occupied home.
I would recommend remove/replace if she really doesn't like it.

Welcome, Tony.

I'll move you over here where more of our stoners hang out. They're more likely to know what things can and cannot be done to your finish.

You might wanna tell'em exactly what tile you have. Name brand, make and model.
