RE: Matte Black Granites (Follow-Up #2)

posted by: november on 09.13.2009 at 11:08 am in Kitchens Forum

I have honed absolute black and love it. We haven't had problems with fingerprints, but I do wipe it down every day with Method granite cleaner, which might be the reason. My mom has honed Virginia Mist, which is gorgeous, and looks somewhat like soapstone. She hasn't had problems with water or fingerprints either.

NOTES:

i am desperate to find something GOOD ABOUT HONED ABSOLUTE BLACK. I have white cabinets and wanted the sharp contrast of the black absolute. I am not so into a busy granite, but just am fearful of the shine of polished even though i love the clean look of shiny surfaces. If I get the absolute honed, will I sacrafice the black/black color or will this method cleaner help make it look darker like the black I like? I had heard when you hone black absolute it becomes very grey, which I do not want at all. can you email me a reply?
