Soapstone is a solid choice in almost any counter top solution but color can be an issue. As a natural stone, soapstone comes in a limited color palette (no whites or purples) and generally is not a high-gloss material. It has a rich, matte texture in a surprising array of neutral colors. It’s a good idea to see the slabs in person and compare finish choices to select a style that compliments your project.

Finishes: Depending on the finish you choose, soapstone can be matte, leathered or shiny. The price is in the mid-range for a natural stone so you won’t break the bank.
Design: Soapstone is timeless. As a design element, Soapstone is a differentiator (a natural stone that’s not used in every home on the block) and it’s at home in a farmhouse, an industrial kitchen, French country, or practically any style you dream up. (See our gallery for Soapstone ideas in every design application.)
Hardness: All stone can be scratched but Soapstone’s unique properties mean that you can allow wear and tear (like a fine aged leathering) or simply clear the slate and easily buff back to a pristine surface.
