Different Granite Finishes

Polished Granite Finishes

Polished is the most widely used and is the most resilient to stains. This gives the granite a smooth and even surface, making it less porous and therefore less susceptible to stains. 

Honed Granite Finishes

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.

Leathered Granite Finishes

Leathering the stone involves flame texturing the surface or brush 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. Our suppliers always have a wide selection of this finish.

Come on by and see the variations in person. Our decorated showroom has all the possible finishes on display. Pictures online simply do not do the granite any justice.
