Is the marble countertop honed? Do you recommend that instead of polished? Would it not absorb more?

Granite Grannies
Honed versus polished is purely an aesthetic decision. Neither is objectively better than the other.

hi - this counter was installed honed. materials can change appearance dramatically by changing the finish from polished to honed or brushed or flamed, so it is an aesthetic decision. the choice to use harder materials such as granite or quartz over marble is a functional decision. this particular kitchen does not get heavy everyday use, so honed marble was a great option to get the look the client wanted. hope that helps. Cheers - YAWN

Love this kitchen. Pallette is neutral but not boring. Has a calm feel, and light and bright.
