Soapstone is a natural surface yet totally unique. Its uniqueness and durability make it a great fit for commercial applications and therefore in great demand for everything from bar tops to flooring.
Going for a natural finish in your design? Considering Marble, Granite, Quartz or even Concrete for your commercial application?
Marble, Granite and Quartz slabs become common due to the fact that the same color, quality, and finish of stone that can be quarried from any one location for years and years. Soapstone on the other hand is so incredibly unique that no 2 slabs are ever the same.
Colors vary greatly, but depend largely on where the soapstone comes from. Colors vary from greens to grays,and everything in between. “Veining” usually reserved for the finest marbles, are common in Soapstone countertops. Because the slab color is a natural process doesn’t mean you’re powerless to personalize it – mineral oils can be applied to darken or lighten the tones, or you can go “Au Naturel”.
