The Right Stone for Bar/Restaurant Owners

As a bar or restaurant owner, or a restaurant owner with a bar, you want to choose the ideal stone to offer an aesthetically pleasing environment for your guests and achieve a long-lasting functionality for your business. The right stone can make all the difference in the visual appeal of your bar while your servers are offering up flights, cocktails, appetizers, and meals to your patrons.

The perfect stone for your bar/restaurant showcases your establishment’s energy, delivers style and function, and greets your customers. There are several options available from natural stone to engineered products. Let’s uncover the one that will best suit the needs of your bar or restaurant.

Marble – Elegance and Luxury

Marble is a multi-purpose natural stone used in architecture, sculpture, designs, and more. Offering timeless design, marble features subtle tones and lines which adds elegance and luxury to your bar and restaurant.

Marble is also known for its longevity, though if not cleaned up quickly, it can stain as a result of spills from wine and other acidic substances. Of course, as a restaurateur, you know that spills are quickly cleaned off any surface, making marble an exceptional choice for your bar. However, keep in mind that marble surfaces need to be sealed regularly to keep them functioning at their best.

Classic Marble Restoration, Inc. offers the most thorough marble cleaning process and outstanding marble polishing services to keep your marble looking brand new.

Granite – Classic and Versatile

Granite is another excellent choice in natural stone. Every slab of granite is distinct, offering a multitude of colors and patterns making it ideal for upscale restaurants where culinary creativity abounds, or neighborhood bars where everyone feels welcome.

For your granite to promise a unique character and deliver functional durability, you will need to hire a granite and other natural stone services company that specializes in restoration and polishing.

Onyx – Deep and Exotic

Onyx, also a natural stone, is unique in the fact that it is translucent and can be backlit, adding to its deep, exotic charm. Onyx promises a unique design, which will act as a focal accent for your restaurant. Onyx is slightly more sensitive than other natural stone, so it will be the optimal choice for more exclusive venues.

However, onyx can be used for any venue if you hire a professional marble restoration and polishing company to regularly maintain it. With Classic Marble Restoration, Inc., you will no longer have to worry about the delicate onyx stone on your bar top.

Successfully Facing the Challenges of a Bar or Restaurant Owner

As a bar and/or restaurant owner, it can be difficult to keep the natural stone in your bar/restaurant clean and safe on a daily, and we understand the importance of keeping your bar in tip-top condition for your patrons. That is why at Classic Marble Restoration, Inc., our goal is to help you do just that, so we are pleased to provide you with a FREE estimate for keeping your natural stone looking its best and performing with exceptional functionality for years to come.

Why You Should Update and Transform Your Home With Natural Stone Honing

Natural stone is not a new building material. In its various forms, stone has been a top choice for floors and counter tops for decades due to its durability and range of colors and styles. Using natural stone in the design of your home adds an earthy element to any room. For some, the natural shine doesn’t align with their taste or design preferences. Stone honing is the best way to customize the look of your natural stone floors or counter tops and give your home a unique aesthetic.

What Is Stone Honing?

Stone honing is when a technician uses course pads to smooth out bumps and rough spots and create a more muted finish. The technician attaches the pads to a machine then sprays water while moving the pads over the polished surface. Sometimes powdered acid is also applied.
Natural stone materials like granite or marble have a naturally shiny surface that reflects light. By taking the same piece of granite or marble and grinding the surface down slightly, instead of a bright reflective surface, you’ll have one that looks smooth and flat. The end result is a matte or satin finish, rather than the shiny appearance of a polished surface.

Can Any Surface Be Honed?

Counter top and flooring materials have come a long way since the days when Formica and vinyl were the norms for kitchens and bathrooms. Today homeowners can choose from hardwood, laminate, ceramic tile, stainless steel (for counter tops, not floors), glass, and a variety of stone materials.
You can’t hone all counter top or floor surfaces. In some cases, the material itself won’t allow surface honing. Imagine applying a course rubbing action to a laminate or stainless steel counter top. Materials that do respond well to the honing process are:

You can also hone concrete and most man-made quartz.

Will I Love Honed Stone?

One of the biggest fears associated with making changes to a home’s decor is not liking the end result. Once you see the beauty of honed stone, we guarantee you’ll love it. Even so, here are a few things to think about before you decide on honed stone.
When choosing finishes for your counter tops and flooring consider two things:

  • Intended use
  • Personal taste

For example, if you lead a busy life and have kids, you want a finish that doesn’t highlight fingerprints and smudges. If that’s you, honed counter tops will be a hit!
If you’re drawn to softer more natural looking environments, you’ll love the warm ambiance created by a honed finish on stone floors /counter tops.
Looking for a scratch-resistant surface in high-traffic areas? Tired of slippery polished floors? Then you’ll like what stone honing can do for you.
Finally, if you’re transforming your design style from a traditional to a contemporary or industrial look, honed finishes will fit in well.

Ready for a Transformation?

There’s nothing like the rustic beauty of a natural stone surface. Stone honing can breathe new life into tired polished counters tops and floors, help mask flaws, and refresh the look of an entire room without the need for major construction or renovation. If you’re ready for a transformation, contact us today. Get ready for your stone make-over!

Choosing the Right Stone for Your Home

When it comes to choosing a natural stone for your home, you have a variety of options. The types of natural stone each have their own advantages and disadvantages. Which one is better? It really depends on your own personal style preferences and how you wish to use them in your home.

The main thing to consider when choosing a stone for your home is how it will be used. The harder stones, like granite and marble, are best used for areas that will get a lot of usage, like your countertop. Softer stones, like limestone, can be scratched and may be best in places of accent, although many people simply protect their counters using cutting boards, trivets and coasters.

Cleaning and maintaining the stones may also be a factor in the decision you make. Many only require a mild detergent to clean them, but if they are porous, which will allow bacteria to penetrate them, you may need to use harsher cleaning agents. How much work do you want to put in to keep them looking good should play a factor in your decision.

If you are considering a change in your home, Classic Marble Restoration, Inc. can help you to determine which of the natural stones may be right for your home, whether it is travertine, terrazzo or another type of stone.
