Finishes of Granite in India
When redesigning your home with granite countertops, you get the excitement of not only choosing which stone you’ll use but also which finish the stone will have. Think of the finish as the way you want to showcase your granite. Do you want a glossy, reflective surface to brighten up your kitchen? Maybe you’d prefer an earthier, matte finish to lend the room some rustic charm.
The granite’s natural pores become sealed during the finishing process, making the stone more hygienic and moisture-repellent. Polished granite’s stain resistance is one of its biggest advantages. The polished finish makes granite appear glossy and reflective, and it accentuates the stone’s natural hues and textures. Because the surface is mirror-like, it will also make your kitchen appear brighter.
- Brightens a room
- Most stain-resistant finish
- Most hygienic finish
- Enhances stone’s natural color and texture
- Reflective surface accentuates flaws in the stone and smudges
- Can corrode under acidic or corrosive cleaners
However, rather than reflective, the finish has a matte or a satiny, buffed appearance. In past years, the honed look was more popular as a floor finish than a countertop finish. However, with the increasing popularity of the modern house. this finish might not have the results you’re hoping for. Honed granite also requires more frequent resealing than polished granite because it’s more prone to staining.
- Conceals smudges and small imperfections in the stone
- Smooth, functional surface
- Slightly fades or mute’s stone’s natural color and texture
- The porous surface requires more frequent resealing than other surfaces
- Accidental chips or scratches in stone will be noticeable
If you’re not sold on a polished finish but desire something more stain-resistant than a honed finish, leathered granite is a great compromise. To achieve a leathered finish, you start with honed granite and run an abrasive, diamond-tipped brush over it to create a subtle, dimpled texture. A leathered finish will also better accentuate your stone’s natural color than a honed finish. However, leathered granite is non-reflective and, as a result, can make a small space seem smaller.
- Conceals smudges and fingerprints
- Enhances the stone’s natural color
- Moderately stain-resistant
- The non-reflective surface can make a small space seem smaller
- Reliefs in the stone make cleaning slightly more difficult
- Accidental chips or scratches in stone will be noticeable
To achieve a flamed finish granite finish you must expose the stone to heat. After giving the heat to slabs the tiny grains inside it burst. That being said, it’s extremely important to make sure flamed granite is well-sealed because this highly porous, textured surface is prone to staining and trapping dirt and moisture.
