SOAPSTONE SINKS & BASINS
Soapstone sinks or basins come in two basic types.
(1) Carved soapstone basins are made from one piece of stone from which a basin has been hollowed. These soapstone basins have no seams, and can have rounded corners. In general, they cost about twice as much as slab assembled sinks in terms of contained volume.
(2) Slab assembled soapstone sinks are made from slabs attached together at seamed corners. The assembled method of constructing a soapstone sink leads to a less expensive finished product, with a spacious basin.
Soapstone sinks are available in many dimensions, configurations and styles to accent any room’s decor. Creative, custom fabricated back splash and drainboards for home and commercial projects are this stone’s common domain.
