granite or soapstone but I'm loving this kitchen! Any thoughts to help me decide? Thanks
Barbara: Soapstone can nick or scratch more easily than granite, but it's possible to just sand out the marks. Some homeowners like the patina that a soapstone left untreated will develop over time, but if you like a more rich, pristine look, you can use mineral oil every year. Soapstone is a natural heat
untreated soapstone. I'm sorry but I do not recall the color but I can tell you that it is more on the grey side than the photo makes it appear.
Thank you so much for the information, I will surely go back to a yard to look at soapstone in person. I did find a granite that I loved called dolce vita but
pots on soapstone and granite. Neither will stain. Really, I'd say the biggest difference is aesthetic. Of course, there are lot more granites to choose from, but if you are going for the subdued gray, green, steely blue, or black look, than soapstone is a great choice. Go to a supplier/ distributor and
