Honed is the name of a matt finish in stones which is achieved by using fine abrasives and stopping the process before a high sheen is seen. This results in a smooth matt surface that suits environments in which a high gloss isn’t required.

Originally, Black slate honed was used for taking notes in pubs and inns in England, where phrases such ‘blank slate’ or ‘ clean slate’  were originated.

This classic and volcanic natural stone is ideal for use in traditional and modern spaces, bringing the beauty of natural stone to any interior or exterior area including kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, utility rooms and terraces, balconies and patio floorings.

This stone is available in slabs of 20mm and 30mm thicknesses. Other finishes include Aged, Bush hammered, Sandblasted and Tumbled.

Tiles are available for floorings; a matt finish will provide a softer look on this hard-wearing natural stone.
