Soapstone: Now Trending in NYC

New York City Soapstone

Garden State Soapstone has installedĀ soapstone countertops and done otherĀ services for customers who span the mid-atlantic coast, from Maryland and Pennsylvania to Upstate New York. Lately, we’ve gotten a lot of attention from homeowners from Brooklyn & Manhattan.

That’s because soapstone makes a great addition to any modern, urban establishment. It’s been featured in several news sources lately, since its becoming more and more popular in NYC environments. Like this Upper West Side restaurant, and this Vogue family home featuring a soapstone island countertop.

This home in particular used Gris soapstone, which has minimal to moderate veining. This variety of soapstone complements the previously installed marble countertop island and red decor.

Once treated, Gris soapstone darkens in color. Veining details become a sleek contrast, especially next to lighter stone, cabinets, and tiling. Detail of Gris:

The homeowners also installed an outdoor grill, also made of untreated Gris soapstone. Because of soapstone’s thermal properties, the grill top will not be damaged in extreme cold or heat, and will provide a gathering space during warm weather.
