Soapstone Countertops & Sinks
Soapstone has long been used as a raw material for sinks, countertops and cooking utensils due to its unique properties. Soapstone is impervious to heat and resists both acids and alkalis. It is an extremely dense, yet soft, stone that may get scratched during ordinary use.
The white talc that rises to the surface when scratched will easily disappear when rubbed with a little mineral oil. Deep scratches or gouges can be repaired with minimal effort, unlike many other solid surface countertops. Countertops are often treated with mineral oil which darkens the stone. Over time the countertops will develop a rich, satiny texture. Soapstone is a beautiful choice no matter what style cabinets it is paired with. Soapstone can accent, embellish, or be the focal point of your kitchen or bath.
WarmStone Fireplace & Design can fabricate soapstone countertops and sinks using large slabs from the same beautiful stone that Tulikivi fireplaces are made from.
We also sell slabs directly for you or your contractor to fabricate. Average slab sizes run from 90"–100" long x 60"–80" wide x 1 3/16” thick, however larger slabs are available upon special order.
