Kitchens, old and new

Have you ever thought about kitchens of the past?  Take a look at old farmhouses in the mid-west or in the Eastern states.  These homes have much to tell us about history.  What were people like and why did they use the materials that they did?  Their kitchens told a story of practical and hard working families.  People used their kitchens and picked materials that were useful to them.  Many of those homes that still stand have the original soapstone on the counters or a soapstone sink in the kitchen or laundry area.  Hard working kitchens with a quiet beauty that lasts.  What worked well then also works as well now.  Come see this lasting natural stone handcrafted into beautiful sinks and  counter-tops at Soapstone Werks.

Here's What Our Clients Have To Say

The office staff was fabulous and very professional. The installation was fabulous, on time, great workmanship, and able to handle challenging custom work. Favorite things about soapstone is the look, the finish, and the fact that it doesn’t react with red wine, tomatoes, etc. No problems with the soapstone. Maintenance is easy with the walnut oil canuba wax. Absolutely would recommend soapstone to our friends and Soapstone Werks! We love the look and durability of our new soapstone counters. The installation is perfect. We had a challenge because we have a 1914 original craftsman kitchen, and when Greg and his team replaced the old countertops, there were many custom cuts needed to fit the original cabinets, including curves and a custom backsplash. The job is perfection, the soapstone looks like it could have been original with the house. Soapstone werks also installed matching soapstone to our fireplace hearth. It’s beautiful, a perfect installation, and it looks like it is original to our 1914 home. We looked at four other soapstone companies and decided to go with Soapstone Werks because of their unique selection of soapstone, their professionalism, and their friendly attitude. Many thanks to Greg, Wendy, and their team.
