Polishing is an expert's job. Unless polished properly, the granite will look dull and your money will all go in vain. Call someone who is an expert in this field.

You really need special equipment to polish granite. Its like a grinder but you put polishing pads on instead of an blade. There are both dry & wet polishing systems. You can also get hand polishing pads for the corners & more precise details. Not sure if you cant rent these but for piece of mind it wouyld be better to get an expert in for the job. As for the cost I would reckon less than £500

It may be possible to get a gloss stone sealer to make it look shinier but i would reccomend using a test piece before trying it on the finished product.
