For the Natural Look
Soapstone can be hard to find, but at Dauter Stone, we keep it in stock. We are the only supplier in Western Canada with over a decade of experience working with this special product.
Soapstone is a unique choice for those who want the beauty and practicality of natural stone with a softer, slightly textured surface and a more rustic look than polished stone. Soapstone is extremely dense, non-porous, and will not stain (once oiled). Like granite, it is stain-resistant and heat-resistant. Colour choice is in a range of greys, with creamy white veining, a good match for most tiles, cabinetry and fixtures. Unlike granite, it is soft, and although it scratches easily, the scratches disappear with oiling. Initial saturation with mineral oil is required to prep the surface, and brings out the colour and beauty of the stone.
Most vanities require only a remnant sized piece, which are always available at a substantial discount.
