Po's and cons of fiinishes - I love both the honed and flamed look. What are the pros and cons of these for kitchen countertops..will they eaken the granite? Will they stain more

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!

A question regarding the moulding on top of the cupboards. - I am doing a small Kitchen Reno and it was suggested to me to add moulding to the top of my existing cupboards. If this possible and if so will it match exactly with what I currently have. I like the look of it here . My cupboards do not go right to the top of the ceiling. Do they have to for it to look right or can it be added to them in their existing spot. There will still be a gap between them and the ceiling. Thanks

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.
