Is leathered granite a bad idea for kitchen counters?
I'm thinking to do a dark color on the perimeter counters, a black granite or marble that is leathered, and a carrera on the island. The island will be stained and the perimeter cabinets and wooden hood will be painted some kind of white. I've not decided on a back splash, which is a whole other issue, and that likely will be dictated by the counters. Anyway, the slab salesman suggested leathering the tops of the perimeter counters to achieve an older look. The white will be honed. Any thoughts?
