Honed Granite-opinions

etbtcar | May 24, 2007 10:41 AM

We are doing a kitchen renovation and are thinking of granite counter tops. We like the honed finish look, but have been warned off because of maintenance and appearance over time. We don't want the counters to appear dirty all the time or to have glass rings showing up from to many wine spills.
I was wondering if anyone has experience with these counter tops.
I have heard good things about the standard polished granite counter tops but they seem a little glitzy for our smallish kitchen.
We have considered soapstone but are concerned about the soft nature of the stone. We would be klutzy and drop something on it within the first couple of days, for sure.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
