Different Stone Finishes

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

  • Polished
  • Honed / Matt
  • Antiqued / Leathered

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 / Leathered

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.
