How To Seal Granite Tables

How do you seal a granite table?  Do granite top tables need to be sealed? If you’re going to place food or drinks on your granite top table, you probably need to seal it.  Tables made of very dark stone or dense stone won’t need sealing, but lighter color tables, porous and less dense, will.

If you have a marble table or limestone table, you will definitely need to seal it.

Sealing a table is no different than sealing kitchen countertops.  Watch How To Seal Granite Tables video for complete instructions.  See Kitchen Tips for ideas to update the kitchen.

Granite Table Tops

A granite table top can be custom made from any kind of stone.  Tops can be purchased from pre-made inventory also.

Custom stone tables can be any size or shape. They are typically made by a granite fabricator.

Granite Table Bases

So what do you put stone table tops on?  Granite table bases need careful consideration since they may have to support a lot of weight.

Wood bases can look very attractive but may not be sturdy enough to withstand the weight or even balance a  heavy stone top.

I have seen well build hardwood table bases that work great and perform great.

Steel or wrought iron bases often make ideal granite bases.  They are strong, heavy, and offer many design options.

Check out the resources below for granite furniture and table bases.

Granite tops combined with appropriate bases are both functional and beautiful.  They also offer a versatile design element for your home.

Here’s a large selection of granite bases to look at.
