Different Stone Finishes

Three Finish Types
Granite can come in 3 different finishes: Polished, Honed and Antiqued.

 

Polished
Polished is the most widely used and is the most resilient to stains.

 

Honed / Matt
Honed gives the stone a matt finish, and black honed surfaces are often used instead of slate - granite being much more hardwearing.  The honing process does make the stone more porous and it is therefore slightly more susceptible to superficial staining than a polished finish.

 

Antiqued
Antiquing the stone involves flame texturing the surface or bush hammering it to produce a textured finish.  This is a very tactile material and is suitable for use in the appropriate kitchens, bathrooms and hearths.  We currently only have this available in a small variety of granites which produces a fabulous finish. Please call and ask.
