Experiences with dark honed granite?
Gut renovating a kitchen in a 1920s home. Will be installing white cabinets and medium-stained oak flooring and looking at honed granite for counters as we need a dark to counter all the white and also want the stone to blend in and not take center stage. Have looked at absolute, labarador, angola and jet mist (all black/dark grey) and antique brown. On various threads I have read dark honed counters -- esp absolute black which has minimal pattern -- show the dirt, dust, smudges, etc. more readily than polished with movement. When I mentioned my concerns to staff at the stone retailer and the professional assisting with the kitchen layout/cabinets, neither expressed any issues, but what I have read on the internet still gives me pause. Advice and/or recommendations would be appreciated.
