Soapstone-Look Black Quartz

If you’re deciding between soapstone and black quartz, it’s central to consider performance. Soapstone countertops are composed of talc, one of the softest materials on Earth. Quartz, however, is one of the hardest minerals on Earth, making black quartz incredibly durable, resistant to stains, and easy to clean and maintain, making it the ideal choice for high-traffic areas. It also retains its lustrous black finish without any special upkeep, proving that black quartz is the perfect alternative to soapstone.

Black Quartz Countertops: What to Consider

When it comes to black quartz countertops, it’s essential to explore their unique characteristics, benefits, and considerations. Here’s what you should know before bringing Cambria black quartz surfaces into your home.

Black quartz countertops offer unmatched elegance. The deep, rich color adds a touch of sophistication, making a bold statement in your kitchen or bathroom.

Just like white quartz, black quartz exhibits the exquisite appearance of natural stone, but without the associated maintenance. They do not need sealing or regular polishing. Black quartz does tend to show fingerprints more than lighter colors, so light cleaning is recommended to maintain its pristine appearance. Thankfully, cleaning is a breeze. A simple wipe with warm water and a soft cotton cloth keeps them looking their best. 

As one of the hardest minerals on Earth, quartz stands strong against daily wear and tear, resisting stains and scratches. Like all natural stone, however, it’s recommended you use a closed weave hot pad or solid trivet such as a breadboard under hot pots and pans to protect your countertops from potential heat damage and maintain its sleek appearance for years to come. 

It’s important to think about your design aesthetic as well. Black countertops are intentionally bold by design, so you’ll want to be sure it fits with your personal style and preference.

Whether you prefer the drama of solid black or the elegance of veined patterns, black quartz provides a versatile canvas for your luxurious design ideas. Available in a wide range of design styles, from modern to classic, you’ll be able to create a striking visual impact in any setting.

Want to create an even more refined look? Look to the matte finish. Black Cambria Matte® countertops can elevate your kitchen, dining room, or bathroom designs.

Black Quartz Countertops FAQs

Do black Cambria quartz surfaces require care and maintenance?

No, keeping with its care-free promise, Cambria requires no sealing, polishing, or reconditioning, ever. Simply wipe with warm water, a soft cotton cloth, and mild soap, if desired. Due to its nonabsorbent nature, and unlike granite, it does NOT require regular sealing and is stain resistant.

Are black Cambria quartz surfaces resistant to surface damage?

Cambria is durable and more resistant to surface damage than other stone. However, all stone can be damaged by force and no stone is chip- or stain-proof. Objects hitting edges, particularly at sinks or dishwashers, may cause chips. Surface markings are more visible on monotone designs than multicolored surfaces.

What are black Cambria countertops made of?

Cambria surfaces are made of pure, natural quartz, binder, and pigment. Quartz is one of the most common minerals on Earth. It is also one of the strongest materials with a Mohs hardness scale score of 7 (diamonds score a 10).
