Finishes of Granite Countertop

Updated:2013-01-09 11:36:31
A stone's aesthetic perception can significantly be influenced by its surface treatment. In addition to altering its color and pattern, a finish also alters the physical properties and the performance of the stone.

It is always recommended that you see the actual stone before making the decision to use a special finish on your countertop. Here are four options of granite countertop finishes:

One is the polished finish: the majority of granites are polished giving a shiny mirror-like finish that intensifies the color and enhances the pattern of the stone. Polishing reduces the porosity of the granite thereby increasing its resistance to humidity and chemical substances commonly found in the kitchen.

The second one is the honed finish: a few granites are available in a honed finish producing a smooth, non-reflective surface. This finish creates a more porous surface and should not be considered for a countertop that will be getting heavy use.


The third one is the brushed finish granite countertop, which gives a textured satin smooth look.

And the last one is the flamed finish. It creates an irregular but smooth edged surface producing a less intense stone.
