So how much does marble actually stain? See link.
Because I am TKO, even though I'm getting soapstone counters, I was reading about marble last night.
Those of you with old houses might be familiar with the Petch House Blog. Anyhoo, the owner of that house set out to do some fierce testing on marble, and he concludes that marble staining is actually a myth. While his untreated marble ended up grayish after all his tests, he said that was just from the absorption of water, and that after it dried out, it looked the same as his treated sample.
Lots of good phtos included in his blog. I think he went with an untreated island.
What do you think? Myth?
