Soapstone slabs come in a vast variety of unique colours and textures, making them a stunning choice for any living space: countertops, backsplashes and feature walls. An elegant natural stone, soapstone is often specifically sought after by designers to achieve a certain design look. Soapstone is composed of naturally compressed talc, which makes it a very soft natural stone that is very susceptible to scratches. Soapstone is, however, naturally non-porous and is generally resistant to acid staining or etching. Stone Selection maintains a small selection of soapstone in Calgary and has over 30 years of experience sourcing and preparing natural stones for all uses. Visit our Calgary showroom and see the exciting selection of soapstone slabs we have in stock.
Soapstone for special Uses
Soapstone is an elegant and smart option for exterior applications in Calgary – such as an outdoor kitchen or barbeque area – because it has great thermal properties and generally does not discolour over time, even when used outside or in very sunny locations. Soapstone countertops are a popular choice for outdoor kitchens because they are resilient to Calgary’s seasonal climate. Soapstone is a premium-priced natural stone, so its uses are often limited to smaller applications. If you are designing an outdoor kitchen, consider a soapstone countertop and create an elevated outdoor dining and cooking experience.
Soapstone Slabs a Rich History
Discoveries of soapstone for use in North America as cooking slabs, bowls, and various other objects date back to 8000 BCE. Due to its variability in talc content, soapstone has been highly prized throughout history for its unique features of being soft enough to carve, its capacity for heat insulation, and of course its beauty. From the archaic period to now, all across the world, soapstone countertops have been celebrated. If you are looking for some gorgeous soapstone in Calgary, look no further than Stone Selection.
