Need help choosing black countertop!
January 30, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Trying to decide on what type of black countertop for kitchen. I love the look of honed black granite, but don't want to deal with the constant maintenance of oily fingerprints showing. I like Uba Tuba and Aqua Grantique. Is there a finish between honed and polished?
Thank you for reporting this. Undo
I've heard from other Houzz posters that a leathered finish on granite solves some of the problems you describe. We have dark (waxed) soapstone and love it, but the maintenance (at least in the first few years) is more than with granite, which many people find an impediment. What about a dark quartz? Or a charcoal gray slate countertop?
