  • Matte Finish For Marble Countertops

    Matte finish for marble countertops. Marble restoration to a matte finish involves a process of re-finishing or altering the surface of marble to achieve a non-reflective, dull appearance. Marble is a natural stone that can be polished to a high gloss or honed to a matte finish. Over time, high-traffic areas or improper maintenance can result in a loss of the matte finish. Which leads to a worn or glossy appearance. 


    The first step is to thoroughly clean the marble surface. This involves removing any dirt, grime, or residue that may have accumulated over time. We use specialized marble cleaners or mild  PH neutral . Avoid acidic or abrasive cleaners that can damage the marble.

    Grinding and Honing

    To restore the matte finish, NOVA Stone Care professionals use diamond abrasives or polishing pads with progressively finer grits to grind and hone the surface. We use coarser grits to remove the existing polish or gloss and smoothen the surface. This step is crucial in removing scratches, etches, and any irregularities.


    After the initial grinding and honing is done by NOVA Stone Care, finer polishing pads or compounds are employed to further refine the surface and achieve the desired matte finish. The goal is to create a consistent, smooth texture across the marble.


    Once we achieve the desired matte finish, we apply a suitable sealer to protect the marble from staining, moisture, and other damage. Sealing helps to maintain the restored finish and prolong its lifespan. There are various sealers available, and the choice depends on the type of marble and its specific requirements.


    It’s important to note that marble restoration, especially to achieve a specific finish like matte, is a task best handled by experienced professionals like at NOVA Stone Care. DIY attempts without proper knowledge or equipment could potentially damage the marble surface. Hiring a reputable stone restoration company like NOVA Stone Care, ensures that the process is done correctly, preserving the beauty of the marble while achieving the desired matte finish.
