Advice on soapstone for the not so pristine family
Hello. We are adding an addition to our 100 year old Four Square. I love soapstone!! I am not a fan of shiny kitchens and have no problem with patina and love the look of a warm lived in room. However we have 3 kids under the age of 10, we are not the neatest family. Quite frankly, we have been known to go to bed after a get together and leave the dishes until the morning. There have been mornings when I realize I forgot to wipe the countertops the night before. Just putting it all out there. The kids are .... Well rough and clumsy as kids should be. My question, while clearly I can handle the look of not so fancy countertops are we a disaster waiting to happen if we move forward with soapstone? Concerned about chips, gouges, and creating even worse marks and stains and water rings for a family that is prone to them. We would like to be more organized. Concerned about making it worse.
