Mix Countertop Materials: Soapstone and ?

Posted by chetsmom (My Page) on

I'm planning a kitchen remodel and have fallen in love with the idea of soapstone countertops. Soapstone is expensive, though, so I'm considering just using it for the island and using something less expensive for the other counters. My cabinets will be bamboo. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Are you looking for something that matches or that contrasts?

Many people are doing that. Using the expensive material just on the island. I'd love o see your bamboo cabinets if you have photos.

I'm not seeing that:bamboo has that intricate grain/pattern/texture. Soapstone actually has a lot going on with the dark background and substantial gray/white veining. Bamboo would show better with a lighter feel to the counters or a dark color without the serious veining. Do you have some other options?Maybe just a uniformly dark honed granite??
