A honed finish will show a lot more grease stains, specially with the light coming from the window. On granite I would choose a flamed finish. Cleaning isn't harder as long as you dry with a piece of kitchen paper (towel roll) to absorb moist and grease.

Flaming is a process to make the surface of the material a alternative finishing. Flaming makes the surface more rough , it is done by machines as well as manually. But buying machine flamed material is good choice. After flaming, sometime another finish which is called antique or brushed can be applied. This brushing is also done by line polisher with different abrasives for brushing. The brushed finishing looks wonderful and it just like a leather touch to surface..

I'm not an expert on countertops, would this type of countertop hold up to a messy family?
If not, suggestions of similar countertops with the same look?
Thanks so much!

Love the countertops - What is the countertop called?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Even though this is a granite countertop, it's not the granite you think you know. This is Absolute Black granite that's been given a flamed finish. Specialty finishes like flamed, brushed, leathered and honed are giving even the most common granites a new life.
