Star Galaxy honed granite
Honed granite worktops attract those who want an old, aged look to their kitchen and don't mind (rather appreciate) if natural flaws show on their stone.
Honed granite worktops usually have a matte finish and a softer texture, that is, they have minimal sheen. The process of manufacturing them is similar to a polished granite worktop, except that during ‘grinding’, the process is ceased before the stone turns shiny.
They are suitable for those who want an antiquated look and appreciate a ‘natural’ ambience. Polished granite worktops, as the name suggests, are very noticeably shiny and reflective. The full crystal structure, colour and depth of the stone are visible. Polished granite usually appears darker with richer colour. They look more dramatic as compared to the honed granite, which are more subtly defined.
Honed granite worktops are more vulnerable to stains and scratches primarily because the lack of polishing exposes the natural fissures in the material, which attracts dirt and grime over a period of time. Polished granite worktops are the preferred variety, because of the finished look and the comparative ease of cleaning them.
