Soapstone on perimeter and Nordic Black leathered on island?
I'm considering using classic (Barroca) soapstone on the perimeter of our kitchen and using the Nordic Black on the island. They have a similar satiny finish and the NB has some white veining, although not quite the same as the SS. The samples that I have look great together, but I'm not sure how that will translate in the big picture. We have 60 sqft of perimeter and 36 sqft of island. Any opinions or suggestion welcome!
Another option is Cambrian Black leathered (granite) or Kodiac leathered for the island. The color would be black/brown without the veining for the island. I prefer a matte finish on dark stone.
Also, I'm open to any neutral suggestions for the island in light to medium tones as well as long as it doesn't stain or etch from food, etc.
I would do all soapstone, but I think I would like the island to be less maintenance.
