There are numerous ways to finish the surface of natural stone. For example, polished stone is non-porous and appears shiny. It has ideal application to kitchen worktops, whereas it could be a fall hazard when wet and should be avoided outdoors. We can advise you on the most appropriate finish for your stone surface depending on the desired look, the long-term needs of the stone, how it will be used, and whether it will be inside or exposed to the elements. Finishing edge profiles are another way to add a finished look or final flourish to your stone project. For an accent, a contrasting edge surface is an interesting design option.
