Before I started Design*Sponge, I knew little to nothing about basic home materials. I had only ever been a renter, so I knew more about wood paneling, linoleum and fake terra cotta tile than anything else. But after publishing thousands of homes here over the past 13 years, I’ve gotten to see some exciting materials and options that I never knew were possible. And while marble gets most of the love these days, my heart belongs to soapstone. Soapstone doesn’t stain, it’s heat resistant, and its dark black color helps define a space in an instant. I love it in just about every form and the way it seems to blend effortlessly into both modern and traditional homes. So today I’m sharing 10 of my favorites to hopefully inspire your next kitchen project. xo, grace
