The Best Soapstone for San Francisco and Across the Bay Area

You want countertops that last a lifetime. Who doesn’t?

As any home remodel team can tell you, replacing your old, worn laminate countertops with natural stone is a great way to bring a lot of value to your kitchen — and to your home overall. If you have noticed a trend toward stone countertops, well, there’s a good reason for that. Soapstone, in particular, is an amazing option because it provides the same sort of durability and elegant look as granite, but without the same hefty price tag.

Beauty and Durability, Plus Better Versatility

If it feels like you can’t walk without tripping over a stone countertop, it’s not because natural stone counters are the most popular trend of the day. Well, it’s not just because of that. Stone counters have gained such strong popularity because they look great, but more than that, they offer some impressive benefits for homeowners. Whether you choose soapstone or another option for your counters, you’ll get a material that is more durable and longer lasting, as well as scratch and heat resistant. Unlike quartz or granite, soapstone is also non-porous, so it won’t stain or hold onto bacteria, and it won’t need to be resealed every so often. Basically, this means your soapstone countertops can take a beating and keep going — and look great at the same time.

But did you know that soapstone is great for more than just countertops? The unique combination of heat resistance, non-porousness, and durability make soapstone a great option for indoor and outdoor tile flooring, table tops, sink basins, and more. Soapstone is heat-resistant, but it is also a great heat insulator, making it a great option for use around fireplaces and for masonry heaters. A great way to save on heating costs is to use your fireplace, and then rely on the surrounding soapstone to slowly radiate heat into the room long after the fire has died down or you turn your gas fireplace off. 

Soapstone for Kitchen Use

Undoubtedly the most popular use for soapstone is in the kitchen. This is largely because soapstone is beautiful — and it will stay looking great for decades — but also because it makes it super simple to use your kitchen without worry. Do you often forget to pull out a trivet before pulling a hot dish from the oven? With a soapstone counter, that doesn’t matter; just set your hot dishes straight on the counter without worry. 

The same goes for any chopping or dicing you need to do. Soapstone is durable enough that you don’t need to get out a cutting board for some quick dicing. Granted, you may not want to cut directly on the stone and blunt your knives, but soapstone is a “softer” stone so it won’t damage your knives the way granite or quartz can. And if so you happen to scratch your soapstone counters? No big deal. Just buff out the scratch with sandpaper or steel wool. 

These are also the main reasons that soapstone makes a great option for sinks, not just countertops. A soapstone farmhouse sink gives you plenty of space for pots, pans, and dishes, and it will hold up against the dings and keep looking great. And because soapstone is non-porous, you don’t have to worry about tomato sauce leaving stains. Better still, the non-porousness helps minimize the risk of germs and bacteria spreading!
