What is the difference between soapstone and other surfaces?
You, our customers, are expressing exactly what we have been trying to say when you call and ask us, “what is the difference between soapstone and other surfaces.”
We tell you the difference is the way the room feels, the way you feel in a room that has soapstone. Until you actually visit our showroom it sounds a lot like a story.
Last week we had a visitor to our showroom whose first question was, “Is this the soapstone place?”
If you have never visited our showroom your first thought is probably, the showroom must not have much soapstone if they had to ask that question. The real truth is that we have so much soapstone we might have a problem putting in any more. We have been telling you that soapstone is a contributor to the room, it doesn’t scream for attention with colors, patterns and sheen. For the most part, you notice the soapstone but you have the opportunity to see the room as it is, a collection of your decisions, that reflect your taste and life experiences. But then you touch the soapstone and it’s all over. The way we finish the edges and all other surfaces is so tactile that your hand must keep touching and rubbing the stone. I’m not kidding, this happens here every day.
As a team, we have made our showroom to be a feast of memorabilia, design elements and style that captures your imagination and relaxes you. The more detail and interest you have in your home the more you will appreciate what soapstone has to offer. Soapstone is not one of those ephemeral design items so overused today, it will endure the changes of color tastes you have over the years without requiring a change of countertops.
Cabinets can be painted, walls can be painted but countertops cannot. Trust soapstone to be the anchor in your kitchen and you won’t regret it.
