If you’re looking for a natural stone with an amazing amount of warmth, this is it.
Soapstone countertops are worth considering if you want natural stone that is low-maintenance and quite hardy.
This high-quality countertop material should give you 20+ years of attractive, hardworking performance.
They offer outstanding design versatility.
The colors you’ll find in soapstone range from almost pure white with slight marbling to charcoal gray with nearly solid color. In between, you’ll enjoy a pleasant array of whites, off-whites, pearls and grays with rich marbling.
While not as hard as granite, this material is more pliable. That means it is less brittle, so it won’t crack unexpectedly from stress or weight. In addition, soapstone is very non-porous.
Soapstone is Easy to Clean.
Because it is non-porous, it cleans up with mild soap and a sponge or dish rag. This is a very sanitary countertop, and a good choice for those who enjoy cooking with fresh fruits, vegetables and meats.
