Rich, Natural Beauty that Transforms Rooms
Soapstone has a unique character among the natural stone countertop choices. Used for centuries as a countertop material, soapstone ranges in color from charcoal gray, black, dark grays, and greens. Designers love their warm and natural feel, as well as their natural veins and variation that provide outstanding beauty.
While it's not granite or quartzite, soapstone is plenty durable and is even more pliable than its tougher cousins. The pliability means it's less likely to crack under stress or weight. Soapstone is a softer variant of natural stone though, so care should be taken to not cut on it's surface or drop heavy objects on it.
Soapstone is a wonderous material because it is completely non-porous, so it's hard to stain or etch. Plus, unlike other natural stone countertop surfaces, you never have to seal soapstone. Just clean up messes with a wet cloth and some mild soap. The only maintenance recommended is to give the countertop a periodic oiling or waxing to help it age gracefully and beautifully.
Soapstone countertops are valued by home and building owners because it is the lowest maintenance stone of them all. It's also a charming countertop material that can give a room beauty and warmth. As long the stone is oiled from time to time, this high-quality natural stone will give home buyers decades of attractive and highly functional performance.
