Are you ready to remodel your kitchen but are unsure about what material to use for your countertops? Read on, to find out the benefits of using soapstone for your countertops.
Soapstone is one of the most durable materials available for countertops. Just lik quartz, soapstone is a highly durable material that can serve a variety of uses in your kitchen. Furthermore, due to the nonporous composition, soapstone will not stain. On the other hand, scratches can happen to soapstone. However, with a little sandpaper and mineral oil, you can easily treat these scratches. In fact, your guests won’t even know there was a scratch in the first place.
Soapstone is a material that requires little maintenance. Since it does not need to be sealed, it’s non-porous composition allows it to never absorb any liquids. This is a great perk if you have a family with young children as they are known for spilling things and causing quite the mess in the kitchen. The only thing you want to maintain when it comes to soapstone is the unique stone coloring. This again can be easily done by using mineral oil on the stone regularly. By preserving the stone from discoloring you are likely to reap the many benefits of having soapstone in your home.
With a variety of styles and finishes, soapstone is a unique and custom option in terms of material. Although lacking in color options, soapstone is known to come in a range of colors from light gray to a very dark green, almost black color. With a limited number of available colors, the benefit is that there is no worry that a slab of soapstone will differ from one another. This is often a drawback for people who are looking at granite which often has variations in color from one slab to another. Therefore, if your project requires multiple slabs of material, soapstone is your best bet since it will be able to provide you with the same color throughout your entire home project.
