Soapstone is a naturally occurring stone that offers beauty and versatility for your West Michigan home’s kitchen countertops. You can enjoy the natural soft gray or treat it with mineral oil for a darker, richer color.
Soapstone is a softer, natural stone with an unrefined charm that has gray and black tones and can have hints of greens and blue undertones. It’s a very popular option for kitchens due to its natural beauty. It can be left as is or treated with mineral oil which can enhance the movement and deepen the color to a darker, richer tone. Soapstone countertops are very soft and will scratch very easily. If a patina look is desired you’ll love this material. If not, just sand out scratches and treat with mineral oil and you’ll be back in business!
Soapstone is extremely soft and will scratch very easily. Most soapstone scratches can be easily disguised or removed using mineral oil (for smaller scratches) or sandpaper (for larger scratches). In their natural state, most soapstones are a soft gray. When treated with mineral oil, this color can be enhanced to a darker, richer, and more uniform state. While many homeowners choose to oil soapstone to enhance its natural color and movement, this is not necessary. In fact, many people prefer the look of untreated soapstone.
