Although not as well known as granite or marble, soapstone has been used for countertops for many years. Another quarried stone, soapstone has a warm, milky appearance that allows it to complement other design features without overwhelming them. Soapstone is usually found in varying tones of whites and grays, and it lies in between granite and marble in terms of hardness—not as hard as granite, but less porous than marble. Soapstone is a somewhat rare material for countertops, making it a pricey option but one that some homeowners may enjoy for its uniqueness.
If you imagine that aluminum countertops resemble solid metal surfaces like commercial stainless steel counters, you’re quite wrong. Aluminum countertops are closer to quartz (engineered stone) or solid surface than to stainless steel. They are made of waste aluminum flake, solid surface scrap, and recycled acrylic. The aluminum flakes are added in for appearance, not to create a homogeneous surface. Although an interesting new material, recycle aluminum countertops are somewhat unproven for now. Only time will tell if this will be the next engineered quartz.
