Benefits of Soapstone Countertops

If you’re in the process of choosing new countertops for your home’s kitchen, bathroom or other space and are searching for a durable, beautiful-looking natural stone, consider soapstone.

Soapstone countertops are designed to stand up to any of the stressors your family may throw its way and it is a non-porous material, meaning it won’t be damaged by spills as easily as other countertop materials and typically doesn’t need to be sealed.

No matter what your countertop needs may be, you’re sure to love the many benefits that these countertops will provide your space.

A durable, natural stone

One of the best reasons to choose soapstone countertops is for the durability they provide.

Made from quarried stone that includes chlorite, magnesite and dolomite, soapstone will stand up to whatever kitchen appliances or bathroom items it meets and is an extremely pliable material. This pliability means that it won’t succumb to cracks as easily as other countertop materials.

Soapstone is also non-porous and will not be easily damaged by liquids, giving you peace of mind when you spill water, drinks, or any other liquids on it. Because it is non-porous it will not need to be sealed in the future, making it a great long-term investment.

Provide a beautiful look

It’s no secret that soapstone is an aesthetically pleasing countertop material. This natural stone offers warmth and beauty to any room it is installed in and can go with nearly any type of home design.

Soapstone also comes in a variety of colors that includes everything from grey to black, green and more.

Easy to take care of

Another benefit of soapstone is that it is easy to clean and take care of. Since it is a non-porous material, food and liquid can be easily cleaned away.

This will prevent things like bacteria from lingering on your countertops that can lead to sickness for your family.
