Finish options

Countertop Finish Options

Natural Stone finishes come are offered with three options – polished, leathered or honed.  Each finish has a unique appearance and can enhance the overall look of the countertop.  Many slabs come with a particular finish or we can create finishes for you.  Please ask us for details.

Polished Finish

A mirror-like, glossy surface that brings out the color and character of the stone to its fullest, because it optimally reflects the light.

Honed Finish

A velvety smooth surface with little or no gloss. The degree of honing depends on the stone, but may vary from light to heavy.

Leathered Finish

A finish that replicates rustic or distressed textures. This finish tries to replicate the naturally occurring effects of the aging process.
