Our Custom Soapstone Countertops
Though Soapstone can be used for sinks, bathroom vanities, and fireplace surrounds, it tends to be especially popular in countertop applications. Soapstone countertops specifically offer the following benefits for our Bel Air, MD clients:
- Low maintenance
- Luxurious beauty that complements any room design
- Resistance to high temperatures
- Resistance to staining
- And more!
Not only do Soapstone countertops provide a luxurious gray color that can complement any room, but the color can be customized to meet your needs for style and match the décor of your home. You can choose, for example, to retain a natural look with a light gray color or opt for an aged Soapstone look that has a charcoal-like appearance for a darker effect. Alternatively, you can select an oiled look for a little more shine. Note, however, that this style does require a little extra maintenance as well as ongoing coating applications or enhancers to keep its sleek look. With other forms of Soapstone, common household cleaners can typically do the job with no special sealants.
