Hi there sbriglio, I am attaching a photo of the Carriage House island which has a leathered granite countertop. Leathering gives the granite a textured and matte appearance which makes fingerprints and smudges less noticeable.

I love the look of Absolute Black granite, but I do think there is more up keep--especially with kids. It will show fingerprints, water marks and dust. Think of a black car--lovely when it's clean! All my best, hope I've been helpful.

Mmmm, if cleaning isn't an issue...Honed looks more elegant to my eye, whereas leathered granite has a more modern or funkier feel. What style of kitchen are you planning?
