Soapstone Kits for DIY Countertops
Get natural soapstone kitchen counters at a fraction of the cost with our exclusive DIY kit. Our Kitchen-to-Go Kit is ideal for the handy homeowner who wants a beautiful soapstone countertop at a considerable savings. Unlike granite, soapstone is soft enough that it doesn’t require special tools for fabrication. Installing a soapstone kitchen countertop is an inexpensive DIY project—all you need is a circular saw, a jigsaw, a drill/driver, a grinder, and a sander.
How To Save on Soapstone
More than half the cost of natural stone countertop installation comes from labor. A do-it-yourself soapstone countertop kit eliminates that expense—now you can enjoy a beautiful soapstone kitchen for a fraction of the cost. We’ll even give you a practice piece to test before you commit.
Let M Teixeira Soapstone help you plan your custom DIY project or build the perfect soapstone kitchen counter or bathroom sink. If you can’t decide which one of our soapstone varieties to buy, our Complete Soapstone Sample Package contains a mixed variety of pieces. Depending on current stock, soapstone sample kits may include harder-than-average Brazilian Belvedere, smooth and silky Marina, or green-hued Santa Rita.
DIY Soapstone Kit Options
Contact us to discuss the available DIY soapstone countertop kit options, or explore our four popular fabrication options below.
The complete do-it-yourself soapstone countertop kit is our most cost-effective option. Simply order the pre-cut slabs you need for your soapstone kitchen counter project. We stock pre-cut slabs 30 inches wide by 6 or 7 feet long. Find full-size slabs up to 10 feet long. Please be advised that soapstone sizes and slab varieties vary based on availability.
The most time-consuming part of the fabrication is cutting the slabs to size. For your convenience, we offer cut-to-size services at the cost of $14.00 per square foot (please note: prices may vary by location and this does not include cost of material). When your soapstone arrives, you complete the edge treatments, cut-outs, and installation. This option is good for those who need to use larger/heavier non-DIY slabs, and need to get larger slabs to a more manageable size.
Cut-to-Size and Finished Edge
A time-saving option, we’ll deliver the cut-to-size soapstone slabs complete with a finished countertop edge of your choice.
Our pre-fabricated option is ideal for those who want soapstone kitchen countertops ready to install. We will fabricate the countertops to your specifications. When they arrive, all you have to do is install them.
We stock pre-cut slabs 72 x 30 x 1 1/4 inches and 84 x 30 x 1 1/4 inches. Our full-size slabs are typically 120 x 75 inches. Soapstone slabs can be cut to size, edged, and shaped on request. Please contact us directly to order by phone or email.
