Is soapstone more expensive than marble?
I am in the planning phase of a total kitchen reno and I have always had my heart set on honed Calcutta Gold marble for the counters. Recently, pictures on this site and the FKB of soapstone have really caught my fancy. Is soapstone a lot more expensive than marble or is the price comparable? I am planning on the perimeter cabinets in a very creamy color (the color is brie and that about sums up what the color looks like). The peninsula will be a medium stained maple with a black glaze. I do like the countertops to contrast with the cabinet color, so now I am thinking of soapstone on the perimeter and marble on the peninsula. Any input would be great.
