Unveiling the Hidden Beauty of Quartz

Quartz Finish Options

When exploring the range of quartz countertops available for your kitchen or bathroom, you’ll be amazed at the wide range of colors and patterns available. But what can really take your kitchen aesthetic from beautiful to mesmerizing is the right quartz surface finish. With a multitude of choices between polished, honed, and leathered finishes, understanding the pros, cons, and individual aesthetic appeals of each can elevate your space.

Quartz countertops are more than just a functional surface; they’re an expression of your style and a celebration of your kitchen’s beauty. Make sure to choose a finish that not only resonates with your aesthetic preferences but also caters to your functional needs.

Here’s what to consider when choosing a countertop surface.

Shimmering Splendor: The Polished Quartz Finish

Polished quartz countertops are the classic, go-to choice for most homeowners, and for good reason. This finish leaves the quartz with a glossy, reflective sheen that makes any kitchen gleam with an aura of luxury. It wonderfully enhances the natural elements and colors within the quartz, bringing out vibrant hues and veining.

While the high gloss finish can shows scratches more easily, its non-porous surface makes it more resistant to bacteria and easier to clean.

The Understated Elegance: The Honed Quartz Finish

Prefer a subtler, more organic look? A honed quartz finish might be the perfect choice. This matte finish offers a soft, natural aesthetic that pairs well with both contemporary and traditional kitchen designs.

By forgoing the sparkle and shine, a honed surface is great at hiding fingerprints, smudges and scratches.

Texture You’ll Love: The Leathered Quartz Finish

The newest surface in the quartz finish lineup, the leathered finish gives quartz countertops a slightly rippled, tactile surface that highlights the stone’s natural characteristics.

While a leathered finish will need more attention to maintain due to its textured surface, it provides unparalleled resistance to fingerprints and smudges. This unique finish creates a visual depth that sets your kitchen apart and is an excellent choice for those who crave a unique, high-end look.
