Soapstone Flooring Houston
Soapstone flooring is a versatile stone that is a functional and stylish addition to any home. Soapstone is a quarried stone, but is softer than granite or marble. Soapstone as a natural flooring choice is particularly appealing to homes featuring a rustic, country or “early American” décor, but the unique beauty accentuates modern, sophisticated styles as well.
One of the main benefits of using soapstone flooring in your home is its inertia. The surface of the tiling is non-absorbent, making soapstone resistant to moisture, spills and stains: a quality often sought after in high-traffic areas of the house. Soapstone offers an attractive touch and superior durability to the living room, kitchen or outdoor courtyard.
Soapstone is available in a wide range of colors, and in either a brushed or honed finish. Brushed soapstone is intentionally faded and worn-looking and may be appropriate for a warmer look in a casual setting. Honed tiling is polished smooth to a higher sheen and creates an aura of tasteful elegance.
Maintain soapstone flooring with a gentle sweeping to remove everyday dirt and debris. A damp mop can also remove sticky residue or mud. Avoid using abrasive cleansers on your soapstone floor; add a drop of liquid dish soap if needed.
