Soapstone Alternatives for Your Kitchen
What is Soapstone?
Made from quarried stone, Soapstone is a natural stone material that has been used for centuries in countertops. Soapstone is often known for it’s milky appearance which comes from talc. This characteristic also gives Soapstone a more rustic feel when compared with the more sleek and elegant look of other materials. The presence of talc in Soapstone also makes the material softer to the touch than most countertop materials. However, that doesn’t mean it will stand up to the demands of the kitchen.
