This sur­face ex­udes class. How­ever, be­cause of the high cost, it’s not of­ten used through­out an en­tire kitchen.

To get the lux­u­ri­ous look, Marie-Eve Beau­doin of Poirier Kitchens sug­gests us­ing it on an is­land or as an inset at a bak­ing cen­tre or nook for pas­tries and desserts.

You see it a lot in mag­a­zines, be­cause it is very beau­ti­ful, Beau­doin says, adding they don’t in­stall it of­ten in kitchens be­cause it stains eas­ily. El­e­gant, wa­ter­proof and heat­proof. Por­ous, stains eas­ily un­less pro­fes­sion­ally sealed, can scratch.
