Slate or Soapstone?
I have read all the atributes of soapstone, but I am trying to see if anyone has used, seen or likes slate for a countertop. I live in MA and I can imaging they would be beautiful but I can't find any stone fabricator here that will touch them. The colors would be wonderful in my new kitchen and the 'drawbacks' of both seem fairly minimal. SO I thought I would get people's reactions. Why doesn't anyone like slate?
