SELECT YOUR FINISH
This smooth and high-gloss look is the classic choice for natural stones such as granite and marble as well as engineered stone products such as quartz and porcelain. Polished stone effortlessly reflects light for dazzling brilliance.
Beyond the gleam, a polished finish makes a smooth, easy-to-clean work surface that’s also less porous than other finishes. To maintain your high-shine look, clean your polished stone with a mild soap or our Stone Defender Disinfectant Cleaner. For a flawless shine year after year, we suggest an annual deep cleaning and polish as part of our Stone Defender Maintenance Plan.
Silky smooth and matte-looking, a honed finish is the ultimate in understated elegance. It offers a refined, more natural-looking stone with the ease of a smooth texture. A honed finish is less slippery than a polished finish and more easily conceals imperfections such as etching. On darker stones, honed finishes can sometimes show smudges and fingerprints. While this finish is slightly more porous than a polished finish, it’s equally easy to maintain with a mild soap or our Stone Defender Disinfectant Cleaner.
Textured and matte, a leathered finish, also some- times called a brushed finish, has a raw, natural appeal. The feel of the stone is raised and pebbly though not at all sharp. The look is warm and comfortable showing the stone’s unique characteristics. A leathered finish easily hides imperfections, such as scratch marks. On darker stones, leathered finishes can sometimes show smudges and fingerprints. A leathered finish has more porosity than a polished or honed finish but can easily be cleaned with a mild soap or our Stone Defender Disinfectant Cleaner.
Additional finishes we offer are used mostly in commercial applications and include Suede, Satin, Concrete, Raw, Velvet, Silk, Caress, Hydro, Matte, Flamed and Sandblasted Finish.
