Soapstone looks naturally beautiful and therefore it is a preferred material for countertops. Soapstone, as the name suggests, feels smooth and waxy to touch, just like touching dry soap. Nevertheless, it is very durable and ideal for countertops. It is a metamorphic rock and is formed under the earth’s surface. It takes millions of years to reach its texture and durability, and has to be quarried just like any other natural stone.
When choosing kitchen countertops, consider carefully what you need and what you can afford. It’s a good idea to choose the most functional material possible for your countertop.
