I just did the floor of my little indoor storage with commercial flooring tiles from the Home Depot (Armstrong brand). But I feel the finished look does not look as smooth as what appear to be the same tiles in a local supermarket -- theirs seem to almost have some kind of glaze over them, making them look smooth and kind of seamless at the joints.

I don't care too much about the aesthetics of my indoor storage room but I also plan to do my dining room with the same floor covering and I would like that to look smooth like at the supermarket. I am looking for suggestions what to use to finish them to achieve that look or is the supermarket look just a result of repeated polishing over the years?
