Finishes and Edges
While granite countertops have seemingly endless options for colors and patterns, they are mostly available in two main finish types, honed and polished (glossy). Honed finishes have a matte look that in some situations gives granite countertops the appearance of other materials like soapstone. Polished finishes on granite countertops are good for reflecting light which can make a small kitchen or bathroom feel much larger. Other finish types available for granite countertops include sandblasted, brushed, and flamed looks.
The edging of a countertop has a huge impact on its overall look and granite countertops have the most edge options available.
Colors and Patterns
Granite stone naturally occurs in many colors and hues such as white, red, blue, and gold and it is found in three basic patterns; solid, marble, and speckled.
