Marble, honed vs polished
I visited stone warehouse today, asking for marble and light granites. Salesman says he will show me why I SHOULD put marble in the kitchen. If marble is what you want and choose granite, every time you see your kitchen, you will try to picture what it would have looked like if you had gone with what you wanted.
I was deciding between Bianco Romano granite or honed carrerra or statuary marble. KD figured out price of Ceasarstone but I cant justify that price for a manmade product trying to mimic the au natural that speaks to me.
Anyway he explained how the polish process uses resin that will coat and fill pores and lessen staining that should last years if cleaned and cared for properly. Now I'm so confused! Should I go with marble? If so, honed or polished? Or should I go safe with granite? Spending big bucks on this possible onetime reno. DD says "go BIG or go home".
