Since we have been discussing new concepts and design trends in kitchen and bath using textured surfaces, why not consider it in countertops too. Honed and polished surfaces are the most common and can be applied to many different materials, such as granite, marble, and quartz. Even though polished is still the most popular, there are advantages to honed Homeowners who opt for a honed finish on their countertops will notice fewer flaws or scratch marks on the surface of the stone, as the matte finish does a better job of concealing imperfections. Honed finishes leave countertops with very little shine that looks satiny-smooth. This finish makes the surface of the countertop less slipper and doesn’t have a reflective element to it as a polished finish does. To keep a honed-finished countertop looking its best, it will need to be frequently resealed. Our product can easily duplicate a matte to honed finish that does not require resealing or specialized cleaner. Please feel free to ask for details.
