At Dorado Soapstone we meet hundreds of homeowners faced with choosing countertop materials.

Leathered Noire Soapstone

Some people who come through our doors are new to soapstone and some have done tons of research. Most people who have made the soapstone choice have done so because of the soapstone’s organic presence, its soft, smooth feel, and the relationship between humans and stone. Instead of your living with soapstone, it’s more like the soapstone lives with you. Subtle difference, but you get it don’t you?

NUSTONE QUARTZ logoNow that Dorado has launched the highly acclaimed NUSTONE QUARTZ line, the people who come in to see our soapstone want to learn about quartz as well. And why not? So many kitchen designs are blending materials with stunning results. If homeowners are fixed on having quartz in their kitchen, they can start looking into custom quartz countertops, which can help people decide what they want and how it will fit in with their general aesthetic.

Jennifer Ott, of San Francisco-based firm, Jennifer Ott Design, specializes in color consultations and finish material selection. She put together a fun quiz in houzz to help you in choosing countertop materials.

Some remarks made after completing the quiz complimented its acuity and some took a different position. I took the quiz which told me that I wanted concrete countertops. This couldn’t be further from reality, but it made me laugh.

Here is the link to take the quiz to discover your countertop cupidity. Let me know how it went and whether you have decided upon Dorado Soapstone or NUSTONE QUARTZ :-).
