Styles, finishes, and edges – It can come in polished, honed, leathered, satin, antiqued or suede finishes. Having a textured surface counter gives the countertop a different look. The textured surface is scratch resistance and is less slippery when wet; however, can look like an older stone countertop (due to non polish look). The textured finish makes etch marks less visible and is very popular for kitchen countertops. This finish requires more sealing than polished marble. Polished marble countertops are smooth, glossy, and shiny. The polished marble helps protect the marble from getting stained more than the textured surfaces. Polished marble does not need to be sealed as often as a textured countertop, as the polished layer helps protect the marble. Polished marble countertops have been around since stone countertops have made the move in being the number one countertop. 2

These liquids can also stain your countertop fairly easy. Stains and spills on a marble surface need to be wiped as soon as they happen.
