A luxe, natural material with plenty of veining, soapstone makes a gorgeous kitchen countertop. Soapstone countertops look very sleek and chic and complete the look of a kitchen in a variety of styles. They are also heat-resistant, durable, and unaffected by acids such as orange juice or vinegar (which, let’s be honest, will be spilled at some point in the kitchen’s life). Soapstone does require regular oiling and buffing and can be scratched.
Step 3: Mix up a small amount of Ardex Feather Finish. The manufacturer’s instructions recommend a 2:1 powder-to-water ratio. This is a good place to start, and you’ll be able to tell if that’s the ratio that works for you. It’s important to use the same ratio for each batch that you mix up for one layer, because even small differences in water content can (and will) slightly alter the color/darkness of the dried concrete. You’ll probably be mixing up several batches per layer.
One of the best is factory-engineered quartz. It is similar in look, is sturdy and durable, and is stylishly versatile in a variety of kitchens. Quartz is a hard, long-lasting substance and its glossy surface is easy to clean with mild soaps. Bonus: quartz is low maintenance, neither requiring sealing nor resealing.
