Understanding the Versatility of Honed Finish in Stone Restoration

Honed finish, characterized by its smooth yet non-reflective surface, offers a versatile range of options for stone restoration. From rough to high-hone, the spectrum allows for varying degrees of smoothness, with higher grit numbers indicating a finer finish. However, it’s crucial to note that a high-hone, while nearing a shiny surface, is more susceptible to revealing etch marks from acidic corrosion compared to its rougher counterpart.

In kitchen settings, where exposure to acidic foods and beverages is inevitable, etching becomes a common issue. Marble countertops, especially in kitchens, are prone to dull spots and glass rings due to this acidic exposure. Consequently, while honed marble presents an option, it’s not recommended for kitchen countertops due to its susceptibility to etching.

Despite this caution, for those insistent on using marble in the kitchen, opting for a rough hone is advisable. Not only does it better conceal etch marks, but it also simplifies their removal. However, sealing becomes imperative to mitigate the inherent absorbency of honed marble, unlike polished marble, which is non-absorbent and typically doesn’t require sealing
