Leathered, Polished or Honed Countertops

Give your kitchen, bar or bathroom the upgrade it needs with these new, uniquely fabricated countertops. The finishes on each style will have home guests intrigued and asking, “What type of material is that?” Texture or no texture, shine or no shine, find the one that is meant for your home today.

A Love for Matte-Leathered

Matte is a new finish that is also trending, so you can get precisely that look by getting leathered countertops. The material is very durable, heat resistant, easy to maintain, budget-friendly and, not to mention, a unique texture. Matte looks excellent on farmhouse-style and modern kitchens with dark tones of grey or black. Go for a sophisticated look by adding it to your favorite bar area. A bonus if you have little ones in the household: no need to worry about fingerprint smudges as they do not transfer onto matte as much as other finishes.

Pish-Posh-Polished

Glossy and all shine here! For a luxurious look, a polished countertop will seal the deal with a clear coating. Any light that hits it will bring out the natural colors and reflection, especially if concrete is the base. The polish looks great on all concrete colors from off-white to walnut, even marble, designs. This finish pairs well with vanities, kitchen tables, outdoor islands, and bathrooms. Plus, the added layer will help with heat, water and stain surface resistance. Whether you’re cooking inside or out, prep your meal without a worry! Polished countertops are also easy to clean any spills.

Smooth Like Butter

If you want to go a more natural route, try a classic look with buffed, honed countertops that’s also durable and feels as smooth as butter. It looks clean and adds a subtle look perfect for marble, quartzite or quartz without the need to wax or seal it as often (but is recommended for longevity). Add a surprise to your granite countertops and instead of the usual polished finish, go with a honed look instead. Accentuate your slab even more by bringing out the shimmering colors from your backsplash or decor. This will help balance out too much shine from dominating your honed countertop area. Honed finishes will give you a matte look like a leathered one but without the texture.
