Though often used as a bathroom vanity or fireplace hearth, marble brings an unrivaled elegance to a kitchen. Homes throughout Europe have marble kitchen countertops, and marble has a strong following by homeowners in the United States as a kitchen work surface.
Polished marble has a glossy, shiny finish. This mirrored look is created by the polish used to shine the countertop. Honed marble has a smooth, satin finish created by removing the top layer of the marble. Both polished and honed marbles should be sealed to protect the surface. Special care should be taken to prevent marble from coming in contact with acidic substances such as citrus juice and vinegar as this can damage the marble surface.
