Limestone is an attractive, heat-resistant choice for kitchen countertops, compared to other natural stone countertop options, such as granite and marble, limestone requires significant upkeep. Limestone is more porous than other stone, and usually light in color, so is more easily stained. However, when you know how to properly care for your limestone countertops, they make an affordable and sophisticated upgrade for your kitchen. Choosing limestone countertops with a matte, or honed, finish instead of a polished finish reduces fingerprints and make any scratches or buffed out stains less noticeable. For homeowners who are enthusiasts of mixing finery with the vintage looks, they should choose lovely off-white limestone kitchen countertops which might be the epitome of subtle beauty. The floor of the kitchen should be decorated with dark colored tiles or wooden panels for a totally velvety appearance that will instantly add a totally svelte touch to one’s house.
