Soap Stone Countertops Twin Cities, MN

The Benefits Of Soapstone Countertops

When you are shopping for materials for your home remodel, you are likely to come across soap stone counters. While a soapstone countertop is not as common as others, it is one of the most functional. It will add an urbane, elegant, rustic feel to your home that is similar to that of granite or slate.

Why Soapstone Countertops Are Not More Common

Because soapstone is a naturally occurring material, it is not as common as manmade materials. It is made from a naturally occurring stone called steatite, which includes chlorite, dolomite, and magnesite. If you have a preference for natural materials, a soapstone countertop may be just what you need.

Unparalleled Beauty

There are not a lot of natural stone countertops available on the market today. The beauty of a natural stone is something that every homeowner in Minneapolis and surrounding areas dreams about with its rustic appearance and versatility. Each slab is unique, thus adding a rarity to your home. Soapstone kitchen countertops provide natural charm without being overbearing.

Environmentally Friendly

Since soapstone is not manufactured using synthetic chemicals, it is friendly to the environment. Extracting soapstone does not harm the earth and it can be recycled. If you want to reduce your carbon footprint, choose soapstone outdoor countertops.

No Worry About Stains or Cracks

Soapstone is non-porous, which means that there is less worry about staining from spills like with marble or granite. Even though soapstone appears soft, soapstone bathroom countertops do not easily crack.
