Soapstone bathroom vanities – Soapstone, a soft rock with a smart sense, is a popular choice in the current decorating because it is easy to carve, but resembles much harder granite. While the classic soapstone used for sculptures, it is too soft for use in bathroom design. The type of soapstone suitable for use in the bathroom is also known as steatite.
