Kitchen Counters – Solid Surface Part 4

Solid surface materials are manufactured by Dupont “Corian”, Formica “Signatures”, LG “Hi-Macs”, Samsung “Staron”, Wilsonart “Gibralter”, and several others are a cost effective alternative to Granite or Engineered Stone.

Pros
Comes in hundreds of colors and patterns. The material is extremely durable, can withstand heat, the seams are nearly invisible, it can easily be repaired and easy to clean. Great as an alternative to ceramic tile.

Cons
Solid surface is even more generic looking than engineered stone.

Summary
An excellent option for a more cost effective remodel.  No grout joints makes solid surface a maintanance free and easy to clean.
