Different Types of Granite Finishes

In any construction project where an architect wants to bring in richness and a deep sense of exquisiteness, granite comes as the foremost option. The beauty of granite is timeless and this is what makes it the most preferred material for a wide range of construction applications. Be it a residential project or a commercial one, the application of granite stone means high durability and low maintenance.

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.
