We love everything Soapstone, so we were excited when we saw Forbes Magazine’s recent article, “Why Soapstone Is Ideal for Kitchen Countertops and Sinks.” The article offers a detailed overview of soapstone, from its history to origin and its most common applications today.


The article also notes the many benefits of soapstone countertops:

  • Soapstone is non-porous
  • Soapstone is durable and dense
  • Soapstone is a maintenance-free material
  • Soapstone is resistant to bacteria, stains, acids, chemicals, wine, and heat
  • Soapstone does not require sealing, keeping chemicals out of the kitchen
  • Soapstone thaws food quickly because it absorbs the temperature of its environment

Beyond its practical benefits, this beautiful natural stone adds style to both traditional and modern spaces. It develops a beautiful patina with age, which can be allowed to evolve naturally or evened and deepened by oil application.

The article, written by Sheri Koones, is a great overview of the benefits of using soapstone for indoor or outdoor countertops.
