Erin Napier’s Fake Soapstone Countertop Looks So Real
As the host of HGTV’s “Home Town,” Erin Napier is no stranger to kitchen renovations. While countertops can be expensive, Napier revealed the budget-friendly solution she uses.
Napier went with black mist leathered granite in her own vacation home. This fake-soapstone countertop is genius, because it mimics the look of a more expensive stone.
Soapstone can cost up to $300 per square foot for material and installation. Alternatively, leathered granite like Napier’s can cost as little as $35 a square foot for materials.
Napier shared in an Instagram post about her family’s kitchen renovation, specifically about the countertops, saying, “I can’t believe it’s not soapstone.”
If you prefer lighter material, you can choose from a plethora of differently colored and textured granite options, such as honed granite, or use leathered quartzite.
