Marble Surface Finishes - Add A Little More Wow To Your Project

Marble surfaces date back to ancient times. This material has stood the test of time and became a staple of interior and architectural design.

Marble Countertops Can Be Finished With Several Styles

Marble comes in an infinite number of patterns and colors all slabs are unique and never duplicated. There is another aspect of Marble that adds to its appeal, texture, there are several options available. Let's explore each below.


A honed finish is a matte velvet like texture with a very low sheen. This is a finish that will leave your marble countertops looking very natural and adding a wow factor in a subtle manner. This satin finish is created by removing very small bits from the surface of the slab. The honed finish is great for high traffic areas such as your kitchen countertops or bathroom vanities. With the matte finish scratches are not as visible. We do recommend using our 25 Year Sealer. This sealer is the best in the industry and there is no other product on the market with this amazing warranty. You can learn more here.

The brushed finish gives a natural and antique look to the marble stone. To convert the marble into the brushed look, the stone is brushed until it becomes textured.

A small change in the techniques alters the look and quality of the stone; some finishes look better in high trafficking areas while some look great in low crowd areas.
