It is no secret that the popularity of natural stone derives from its beauty and brilliant luster. Some 1.265 billion square meters of natural stone were used for construction this year. Its versatility and functionality is unmatched. But beauty is only the beginning.
Durability is another reason that we have a love affair with natural stone. There are many differences between stone types. Granite is good and strong, it can stand up to heat and is stain resistant. Marble is more porous, but still a strong stone good for everything from Bathrooms to Kitchen countertops. French Limestone has intense color, and is more durable than lighter limestone’s.
Soapstone is another option and one of my favorites. In old homes that have the original soap stone counters, they take on character, they can tell a story of the past. Soapstone is hard and stain resistant, naturally non porous it has a softer look and as you treat it with mineral oil it enhances the natural darkening process.
