Titanium granite - to leather or not?

MardoAugust 21, 2012

We are narrowing down some granite choices and DH and I both like Titanium. We've seen beautiful polished slabs but drooled over a leathered slab. Does anyone have leathered granite, particularly in Titanium or similar color? What is like to really live with leathered granite vs. polished? I always said I would NEVER go with solid black granite due to the gazillion smudges it gets, so I"m hoping the pattern in Titanium may mitigate that (leathered or polished) but if you tell me otherwise I can easily ditch this choice. My sanity and marriage are worth more than wiping that pretty black granite all day long. Note: DH does NOT participate in daily kitchen maintenance hence my apprehension.

I have a black leathered granite in our kids bathroom and although beautiful, I am cleaning it constantly to make it look nice:( I have no idea which black granite it is- my contractor showed me the leathered and the polished samples and of course I loved the look of leathered.

FWIW:
I have leathered black pearl and absolutely love it. It shows no smears or smudges. Water spots are not noticeable. I wipe it off around the sink, as I would any surface, but other than that it is mostly on its own. After a year, it still looks perfect.
