Leather Taj Mahal granite?
We are in the process of building a new home and are in the midst of choosing our kitchen counter tops. I fell in LOVE with a particular leather taj mahal granite slab that would be perfect for our kitchen island. And pairs perfectly with our backsplash.
HOWEVER, I'm really worried that it will easily stain. Not so worried about etching. But we do cook a lot, and are messy cooks. I read that red wine, tomato sauce (anything red, really) will permanently stain the porous surface. I also read that it needs to be sealed every 6 months?? In our current home we have white cesarstone countertops that are bullet proof. We're constantly spilling all sorts of foods (including red sauces, etc) and they have never stained. Easily wipes up!
Does the porous surface of the leather finish make the granite more fragile / susceptible to staining?
Any input greatly appreciated!!
