One of the most exciting aspects when selecting your natural stone at Progressive Dimensions Countertops is that you can choose your own finish. Here at Progressive Dimensions we fabricate four finishes: honed, brushed, iced and standard polish. This exclusive option allows homeowners, designers and builders to elevate their countertop projects and take their spaces to a whole new level.
The most popular of the four finishes is brushed (also known as leathered). A brushed finish is created when we remove the polish from a natural stone slab then we brush it with special pads, all with our digital machinery to give the stone a textured feel. This finish gives countertops a more natural look. When you add texture, it gives your home a casual vibe. It’s perfect for countertops in kitchens and baths, outdoor barbecues, fireplace surrounds, and any projects where you want to add extra texture to your décor. Sometimes, if the stone has mica in it, it gives it a beautiful twinkling shine.
The most popular brushed finish stone offered by Progressive Dimensions is Portofino. Brushing this type of natural stone allows the colors to become more vibrant and attracts attention by all who view it.
This finish, like all other finishes, doesn’t need special care to maintain it. Progressive Dimensions recommends treating brushed countertops the same way any natural stone is treated; by using Progressive Dimensions’ 15 year sealer, which prevents the countertop from getting stained. To keep it clean, a good rule of thumb is to use warm, soapy water, or Windex Multi Surface or Windex without ammonia.
We encourage you to visit any of our three locations to see these finishes in person, get inspired to try something unique, and feel the difference.
