Granite can make a terrific aesthetic statement in your kitchen. Whether smoothly honed or polished to a mirror finish, it can compliment most design styles.
Since no two granites are exactly alike, one may be very absorbent while another may be very resistant. The idea that all granite and natural stone must be sealed is a myth. According to its individual properties, some granite may need a sealer while others won’t.
