Kitchen Island & Carts May 30, 2017. Choosing between a glossy finish or a honed finish for the island countertop can make all the difference to your kitchen’s ambiance over time. A polished, glossy finish definitely is more appealing visually, and it reflects light fabulously to give the kitchen a stunning focal point.

Honed marble on the other hand is already etched and hence far safer, but the downside is that it stains easily!
