The Benefits of Soapstone Countertops

Whether you are building your kitchen from the ground up or just renovating specific features, countertops are an important part of any design plan.  There are several materials to choose from including granite and marble.  Although, there is one material that beats them all, and that is soapstone.  The natural surface has several benefits that your family enjoy for the years to come!


One of the biggest benefits of soapstone counters is that they are highly durable and can withstand many messes that kitchens are accustomed to.  Soapstone is nonporous material, so it will never stain saving you time and energy trying to maintain its appearance.  The natural stone is used in many science classroom tables around the country because it stands up well to chemicals and liquids.  So if soapstone can withstand dangerous chemicals in a lab, then it will hold up well in your kitchen.

Variety of Options

Soapstone comes in a range of styles and finishes, so you can customize your countertops in your kitchen perfectly.  The natural material comes in colors ranging from pale green to light gray so you can give your kitchen an earthy appearance.  You can also completely customize the texture of soapstone.  Whether you want it slightly rough or totally soft, the texture of soapstone will not compromise its durability.  Soapstone can be integrated into any home from a more traditional, cottage style to higher end luxury mansions.

Environmentally Friendly

Soapstone countertops are a smart investment because they do not need to go through any chemicals or sealers to be installed into your home.  Soapstone is simply taken from the earth, cleaned and trimmed, then sent to your home to be installed.  The material is completely natural and 100 percent recyclable.
