If you’re looking for the perfect stone for your kitchen or bathroom countertops, soapstone is an excellent choice. Soapstone is exquisite and has become increasingly popular over other materials like granite and marble.

Soapstone is an excellent choice for your kitchen since it is nonporous, which makes it antibacterial as well as stain resistant. Soapstone is also heat resistant, so if you happen to put a hot pot on it, you don’t have to worry about the counter being permanently damaged.

Another soapstone advantage is the stone is sophisticated and adds an element of class and elegance to any room. It usually comes in shades of gray, black, and greenish-black. Soapstone is appealing to many homebuyers, and it can not only increase the value of your home, but possibly even help with the sale of it. It is a high-end look that appeals to many buyers and can be an investment.

 

There are some things to keep in mind when considering soapstone. Soapstone is a soft material and it is vulnerable to scratches and dings. Always use a cutting board on your soapstone countertop in the kitchen! Thanks to the veining in soapstone, any scratches or dings are less noticeable, but if you see them you buff them out with mineral oil and a paper towel. For the best results, you should have your soapstone countertops installed by trained professionals like Graniterra.

Like marble and some other countertop materials, soapstone does need some additional care and can seem high maintenance. But, as long as you are careful, your countertop will be beautiful for many years.

Graniterra offers soapstone countertop options, in addition to many more, including granite, marble, quartz, and Corian. Call us at 314.533.3366 or visit our design studio today so we can help you make your dream kitchen a reality.
