Finishes

POLISHED

The most common finish for granite countertops is polished. The polished finish makes the surface of the granite countertop glossy and almost mirror-like. With a polished finish, the characteristics of the stone are highlighted. The colors and textures will be more vibrant.

The polished finish it the easiest surface to clean; it is easy to keep countertops with a polished finish looking brand new as well. Additionally, the polished finish seals the pores of the stone to keep water and moisture out of the stone.

Care for polished granite includes both resealing and polishing the stone in addition to keeping it clean.

HONED

Honed, also called matte or buffed, finish creates a very smooth surface without any gloss or reflection. To create this finish, the regular polish finishing process ends before the stone is buffed to create a flat finish, which is sometimes called a satin finish. Honed finishes are most popular on floors to prevent people from walking on the slippery surface created by polished stones. This finish can also be used on countertops, but it makes the granite more susceptible to staining.

Since honed granite isn’t as slippery or stain-resistant than polished granite, you might need to reseal it more frequently. However, you won’t need to add polish to the stone.

LEATHERED

The leathered finish, also called the brushed finish, is a relatively new finishing style. It is created by taking a honed surface and running diamond-tipped brushes over it to add texture with subtle dimples. Leathered finishes tend to look more sophisticated. Leathered countertops often keep the color of the natural stone, unlike with a honed finish.

When compared to honed granite, leathered granite will be more stain-resistant. This surface finish hides water spots, fingerprints, and smudges.

Edge options

Square

This is the simplest finish and the most popular by far. It’s just straight 90-degree edges all around. Keep in mind though that you’ll never get truly straight and sharp edges – they’ll always be slightly rounded.

Eased

A slightly more rounded top edge makes the eased edge more comfortable to lean on while still preserving the clean, modern feel of the square edge.

Bevel

This is another variation on the square edge where the top edge is cut at a 45-degree angle to slope downward.

Bullnose

The bullnose takes out all the angles and rounds out the sharpness into a soft, semi-circular edge profile. It’s an edge that’s versatile enough to blend in any design.

Demi-Bullnose

This edge is a direct response to the spillage drawback of the full bullnose. It keeps the same curving aesthetics on the top, but maintains the bottom edge on a point so that spills would trickle to the floor instead.
