June 20, 2018
Soapstone is a highly durable countertop material that is found naturally and quarried. It’s mostly composed of mineral talc and has some percentage of quartz in it. This combination makes it a durable and alethically elegant countertop material.
It’s also a highly cost-effective material giving rise to many designs, textures, and themes. It’s one of the more popular countertop materials due to its beautiful and timeless appearance. It’s frequently paired with white cabinets in traditional styled kitchens, but modern homes can have them as well. It’s a low-maintenance material but isn’t as heat resistant as granite is.
