Finishes
You probably already know about polished granite countertops. They are the most popular option. But did you know there are other finish options available? See some examples below.

 

Polished: The shiny finish you typically see on granite kitchen countertops. It’s a classic that never goes out of style. It’s reflective and eye-catching, yet smooth and easy to clean. That’s what make this such an ideal finish for a kitchen countertop.

Honed: This is a matte finish, as opposed to the shiny look that a polished finish gives. Even though it’s not reflective, it’s still a smooth surface. This finish is especially ideal for granite flooring as it hides dirt better than the attention drawing finish of polished.

Leathered: Much like the honed finish, the leathered finish is matte. Like real leather, this finish creates a slightly textured surface. Given its rustic look, this finish is best for shabby chic looks in bathrooms or even fireplaces. This option is always a great choice for marble countertops since marble is easily scratched. It will hide most scratches since it is a dull finish. It is always recommended with softer stones in any room of your home.

Concrete: This finish is popular on grey granites. It resembles the look and feel of concrete but it has the strength and integrity of granite. With concrete countertops becoming a popular option right now, concrete finished granite is definitely something to consider instead.
