Oakland Homeowners Explore Various Granite Countertop Finishes Offered by Surface Encounters
Planning the entire kitchen remodeling project from measuring for new granite countertops to the all-important finishing touches
Choosing granite countertop finishes depends on individual style and preference. Home remodelers can choose between a polished, honed, flamed or brushed finish. The choice of style is according to décor’. When customers tour the Surface Encounters showroom granite countertops experts explain the process of creating and finishing new granite countertops.
A polished finish is the most popular for the beauty and depth of the grain when brought to a high gloss. Polished finishes also create a pristine and elegant touch in the kitchen. Polished granite countertop finishes are a suitable choice for any kitchen. They are easier to maintain than most other finishes and have a high luster look allowing the color in one’s granite to reveal its deep natural grain.
The popularity of honed granite countertop finishes is on the rise. Honed finishes are smooth and have a lower luster than the polished finishes. Although honed granite countertop finishes are less shimmering in appearance, they provide a slightly more relaxed and contemporary look, while still maintaining the elegant touch associated with granite countertops. When properly cleaned, maintained and cared for one’s honed granite countertops will last as long as any other finish.
Flamed granite countertop finishes by Surface Encounters (http://www.halfoffgranite.com/) are another option to consider. The flamed finish is created by exposing the granite to an extremely intense heat followed immediately by intense cooling. The exposure to the extreme temperature causes the granite to melt, and remold its minerals to create a textured surface. Although typically used in industrial applications flamed finish granite countertop finishes can offer a unique look in the home. The flamed finish is an excellent choice for garage work spaces, studios and craft areas where a textured and slip resistant surface is desired.
Brushed granite countertop finishes, sometimes referred to as antiqued finishes, are created when granite processors gently brush the granite’s surface developing a “worn-in” look throughout the stone. A brushed finish offers homeowners the most dramatic kitchen countertop surface.
Whether granite countertop finishes are polished, honed, flamed or brushed, natural stone provides many years of enjoyment to the homeowner. A lot of planning goes into remodeling the kitchen, so the interior design specialists at Surface Encounters are happy to assist the customer with all the details, from measuring to finishing and installing new granite countertops.
