What is the surrounding counter top made of?
leathered or flamed marble surface is a way to conceal scratches and etching that are very noticeable on a polished marble counter. As for Caesarstone
to see how marble wears before you are ready to commit to it. Caesarstone and other quartz, you can order samples for free. In summary marble is a calcite
always have a classic appeal. As for pits and chips, the straighter the counter edge, the more prone to chips you will see. There is really no way around
paint your walls gray and stick with a neutral color on your countertop. Marbles and Solid Quartz colors are always classic options.

The island countertop is Carrara marble & the perimeter cabinet countertops are Absolute Black granite honed. The wall color is a very light grey but

It's really hard to say but I hope not. Marble us really easy to stain polished, ecen more honed
marks on stones such as marble, you are better off using the marble in a matte finish. Remember, the more shiny or polished the marble is, the more you will

Beautiful counter top.What is it made of,marble,granite,quartz?
What is this backsplash tile. Is the counter carrara marble.
What quartz could have the same look as this marble counter? so pretty!
stone retailers will advise honing the marble, etc. since etching is less visible than with a polished surface, but... honing removes some degree of protection
that is not a marble, look at the various white quartzites.
recall that Fox Marble in the Bay Area fabricated this for the client, but are not certain.
over time how is the staining on this marble?
protection that is inherent in polishing the stone making honed surfaces somewhat more susceptible to etching.. tradeoffs :)
Do the counter tops extend out...Is this honed or polished marble?...Carrara Marble - it is mentioned
