What Does It Mean If Stone Is Honed?

So many fancy terms…..!

Granite, marble, or limestone that is honed has a matte or satin finish, rather than a high reflective polish. One feature of honed marble is that it doesn’t show etching as readily, or wear patterns on stone floors. No more scuffed down foot trails on your gorgeous floor! Many people prefer it because it has a less formal, softer appearance than polished stone.

One of the many great things about stone is how versatile it is. If your stone is currently polished to a high sheen, but you really fancy the look of honed stone, have no fear – Stone Surface Specialists are here!
