Here at Soapstone Werks we not only do soapstone counter tops but wood ones as well. Wood and soapstone counter tops look great paired together in a kitchen. We strive to give our customers a kitchen that is not only usable but beautiful.
The wood island shown measures 108×54 inches. It is a beautiful compliment to the Black Duro Soapstone. The peninsula where the sink is, measures 99×63 inches. The pennisula’s overhang needed steel support every 18 inches. Soapstone weighs 22 pounds per square feet which is much heavier than granite. Granite weighs 13-14 pounds per square feet. The drain board was carved here at our shop. They used this same soapstone for their outside barbecue as well.
Here's What Our Clients Have To Say
My husband thought that I was a little crazy for going with something different and having two different hard surfaces (we have both granite and soapstone). Now he really likes it and thinks it was a good choice. We love our sink. It is easy maintenance and was built exactly how we wanted it. The office staff at Soapstone Werks was great-they always called back and were easy to talk to. When it came to installation time Greg and the boys were on time, installed quick, and careful about my flooring. My favorite thing about soapstone is that it is so easy to maintain and durable, it always looks good. Soapstone clean-up is easy; I just wipe it with my sponge and I don’t have to worry about streaking or a residue as I do with my granite. I would recommend Soapstone Werks and Soapstone to my friends. I have a friend who has honed black granite, which gives the same look but it is not as durable. She likes the look but would not put it in again.
