Honed marble is the choice for kitchens
Marble countertops come in three finishes, honed, polished, and leathered. Honed finish is the only option we install in kitchens. Kitchens are busy places, and the soft, matte finish of honed marble won’t show scratches as much, and shows the stone off as a more natural look. Because marble is more porous than other stone, there will be signs of use. Some say that it becomes part of the charm. Designers sometimes refer to marble as the “blue jeans of countertops” – they show the wear and tear of life, but that’s also what gives them their character. But no worries, Cornerstone Marble & Granite can refurbish and reseal the finish, if desired, in the future. See store for details.
