Benefits of Soapstone Counters
Similar to granite, soapstone is a stone naturally quarried in mines and it also called steatite. As with marble, soapstone is valued for its “old world” look and is suitable in this context for kitchens, baths, bars and fireplace surrounds. Before, this material was commonly used by sculptors because of its naturally soft composition. This softness is due to the presence of talc. This softness creates the best feature about this mineral; its natural milky warmth which adds beauty to all types of remodeling.
Soapstone counters usually come in dark gray to black color; making it ideal for kitchen, bathrooms and more. Like granite, it has excellent heat resistance. When installing soapstone countertops in your kitchen, there will be no worries about hot pans burning your countertop. It is also non-porous which greatly contributes to its antibacterial and anti-stain abilities: another reason it’s perfect for kitchens and bathrooms alike!
One of the unique traits of soapstone is its ability to naturally build up patina over its surface. This is due to the natural oxidation of its mineral, resulting in a gradual darkening of the surfaces. You just have to regularly oil its surface to further enhance its patina. It’s also easy to clean soapstone counters. You can simply clean it with a mild dish soap solution, water and soft cloth.
