Soapstone is another natural stone that makes for great kitchen countertops.
It does not have a wide variety of colors like granite, but it is definitely a unique and beautiful stone that has a very high level of heat resistance. It mostly comes in shades of gray and black, and occasionally it has a beautiful white veining. Over the years, soapstone countertops will darken and develop a beautiful patina. Soapstone is a very unique and rustic stone that can add beauty to any kitchen.
At Benson Stone in Rockford, IL, natural and fabricated stone is our business. We fabricate our own stone in a building right next door to our showroom, and we can give you expert advice about what type of countertops might work best in your kitchen or bathroom. Our soapstone ranges in price from $80 to $100 per square foot, and our salespeople can help you determine whether it’s the right fit for you. Then, our professional installers will make it look just right in your home.
Soapstone countertop maintenance
The best way to keep soapstone looking its best is to periodically use a cloth to apply mineral oil. The mineral oil will darken the stone and bring out the natural veining.
What to expect
You’ll start by walking into the Benson Stone showroom and looking around. If you’re planning to do a major kitchen or bathroom remodel, we will connect you with our kitchen and bath designers. If you just want new countertops, our salespeople will be able to help you decide which type of product you want (it’s helpful if you have a drawing of your space). They will also take you to the building next door to our showroom to show you the soapstone slabs so you can get a better idea of color. Once you decide what you want, we’ll give you a quote, and if you want to move forward, we’ll send our expert installer to your home to measure the space.
