Honed Finish

Honed finish is an exceptional marble and stone surface that is created by sanding the marble until a smooth but matte, unpolished texture is reached. This rustic, natural look is ideal for adding a unique touch to any residential or commercial space because it allows subtle hues to shine through rather than being overpowered by glossy sheen. Honed finish marble has become increasingly popular due to its chalky appearance that produces low levels of reflectivity and sets it apart from the otherwise vibrant marble and stone options on the market.

We do not use harsh chemicals that will damage the stones and we use gentle tools to keep your marble sparkling bright. Once we meticulously clean the stone, we tediously polish your stone to bring out its natural shine.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is a honed finish?

A honed finish is a type of finishing applied to stone, metal and other materials. It is a low sheen or matte finish that has been achieved through abrasion or by sanding with an abrasive material such as diamond particles. The result is a smooth, even surface that does not reflect light and does not have any reflective properties. Honed finishes are often used for interior surfaces because they are less prone to showing wear and tear than highly polished surfaces. For instance, it is commonly found on countertops, bathroom tile and other places where people may be in contact with the surface frequently. Honed finishes can also be used on exterior surfaces, especially of natural stones like granite and marble, because they provide a more subtle look compared to a highly polished one. With honing, the pores of the stone will stay open which prevents staining and water penetration while still adding some protection against dirt buildup and scratches.

What are the benefits of a honed finish?

The benefits of a honed finish are numerous, and can be seen in many areas of home improvement. A honed finish is an extremely smooth, satin-like finish that is often used to provide a luxury look to countertops and other surfaces in the home. This type of finish adds visual depth and complexity to the surface material, providing an elegant look that can enhance the aesthetics of any room. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, a honed finish also offers practical advantages as well. It is more resistant to scratches and abrasions than a regular polished surface, which gives it greater longevity. Another benefit is its resistance to staining; while other finishes may require periodic sealing or waxing, a honed finish rarely needs additional treatments for stain protection.  Finally, because this type of finish does not need waxing or buffing, it’s an economical choice for homeowners seeking an optimal balance between beauty and longevity.

How do I care for a honed finish?

If you have a honed finish floor, the best way to care for it is to hire a professional. A professional can ensure that the job is done correctly and safely. They’ll also be able to provide advice on how to properly care for your floor and how to repair.

When hiring a professional, it’s important to make sure they have experience working with honed floors specifically, as this type of project can require specialized knowledge and tools. You also want someone who is insured, so that if anything goes wrong during the repair process, you are covered. Furthermore, ask them for references so you know they are reliable and trustworthy.
