Soapstone – The Perfect Kitchen Counter Material
The kitchen is the heart and soul of the home, but many homeowners hesitate to update their kitchen due to excessive cost. A good renovation costs thousands of dollars, making it difficult to bite the bullet and spruce up your home. At M. Teixeira Soapstone, we’re proud to offer a smart solution to this problem: Our Kitchen-to-Go Soapstone Counter Kit. While soapstone is famously impervious to stains, chemicals, acids, and general wear-and-tear, it is also soft enough that the average handy homeowner has all the tools needed to fabricate a stunning soapstone countertop.
Soapstone is an ideal material for the kitchen because it does not require sealing, it will not stain, and it has heat-resistant qualities. Most people are surprised to learn it is more dense than marble, slate, limestone, and even granite. Withstanding the test of time, soapstone is still widely used in chemistry lab countertops and acid rooms. It’s remarkable durability is perfect for a high-trafficked and well-used kitchen that will stay beautiful for years to come.
Fabricated With Ease by Handy Homeowners
With more than half the cost of natural stone counters going towards labor, it’s an easy decision for DIY-ers to incorporate beautiful stone countertops at a fraction of the price. Instead of needing specialized stoneworking tools, all you need is a circular saw, a jigsaw, a drill/driver, a grinder, and a sander.

“I have never worked with stone countertops before and I want your customers to know how easy soapstone is to work with. I was very nervous to take on this project, but it was not technically difficult and the end result exceeded my expectations.”
