Soapstone - second thoughts. Please post your pics & honest feedback!!

11 months ago

I fell in love with soapstone years ago. We have begun our reno and need to choose our slabs, but I keep hearing horror stories about water marks. I understand the properties of the stone, but the daily upkeep that I am hearing about has me rethinking my choice. I love the tactile feel of it and the durability of it. (Not a huge fan of the glassy brittle granites, though some are very pretty.) Regardless, I need to hear from all of you who have soapstone, and have lived with it long enough to love it or regret it. Photos, please.

This is my inspiration photo. Layout is very similar and we are doing this sage green. Natural white oak floors.
