Selecting a Leathered Countertop Finish for Your Kitchen Remodel
During a kitchen remodel, leathered countertops are one of the many options available to you when selecting a finish. True to its name, this a specialty finish that gives the countertops the appearance and texture of leather material.
“Many prefer leathered countertops because they add dimension and texture into the design, said Normandy Designer Karen Chanan. “The uneven surface of a leathered finish also works well to hide smudges and fingerprints, so it is a great option if you are fussy about visible streaks on your countertop.”
“Leathered finishes are also less porous than a honed countertop finish. This means that it will require less maintenance and is less likely to stain,” added Karen.
