Matte Vs. Polished Countertops
A polished finish is the most popular choice for many reasons. When the countertops reflect light, they can make the space look larger by magnifying the light. A glossy surface is also a luxurious look that fits in well with formal and traditional style homes. Polished surfaces are easier to clean, often only needing a quick wipe down to clean up crumbs or small spills.
A matte finish isn’t so much a texture as it is a lack of shine. In some materials like marble and granite, matte is the finish that a smooth surface has before it is given the final grinding to become polished. In man-made materials like quartz, the colors can come in polished, matte, or leathered. Matte finishes are popular in minimalist, urban, and modern designs.
