Not all of us can live in mansions and palaces, but one way to create a sense of grandeur in your humble abode is by simply adding natural stone. Natural stone such as marble is luxurious and found in the most opulent locations worldwide. Marble and natural stone was even used for historic works of art, including the statue of David. The choices of colors and looks that this surface comes in can overwhelm you, but one major deciding factor other than its aesthetics is its finish. Do you prefer marble that is polished or honed? In many cases you will find that form over function isn’t always the applicable mantra.
Honed marble lacks the shininess and reflective qualities that polished marble has. Instead, it has a more satin-feel, smooth and velvety to the touch. Honed finish is very scratch resistant because it lacks the glossy surface of a polished marble. Therefore, when honed marble does get scratched, it is not obviously reflected when light hits it. Consequently, honed marble soaks up liquids spilled during cooking faster and easier. Since honed is resistant to scratching and less slippery when wet, it is popularly used in high-traffic areas, including floors for the bathroom, living room, foyer, and even kitchen counters.
