We discuss on this video 5 different surface finishings for the Moca Cream limestone, but you can consider many more. In terms of interior applications, the most common surface finishing would be the polished, which is the one that mostly enhances the colour of the stone. The honed surface is another popular one for interior uses, showing a matt surface with little shine. In terms of exterior application finishings, we recommend 3 main types, in addition to the honed finishings (top finishing used on cladding). The brushed finishing, which shows a little rugosity and is a good choice for exterior flooring. For exterior flooring we would also recommend the bush-hammered, a great surface for anti-slippery paving.
