Soapstone Countertops & Vanities Add Elegance To Your Home


Soapstone countertops are not as widely known as granite or quartz, but have many properties that make them a viable alternative to other natural stone countertops. This naturally quarried stone is softer than most other natural minerals, but soapstone is very dense and non-porous. Since soapstone is impenetrable, it will not stain and no liquid will permeate its surface, as can happen with marble, slate, limestone or granite. Other stones, including granite, have a propensity to soil; this is why soapstone (steatite) is widely used in chemistry lab countertops and acid rooms.


In addition to soapstone's material characteristics, it's soft elegance gives your home or business a distinctive look that is easy on the eye with soft tones and colors, and flowing accents marks. Choose from grays, blues or greens to match other soft tones in your home. Combine soapstone countertops with soapstone sinks or floors and rich woods to give the room a European flair.
