3 Reasons To Love Solid Surface Countertops

Solid surface countertops are one of the most popular and long-lasting kitchen trends. This design mainstay is both beautiful and durable, offering a high-end look at an affordable price point. Here are the top three reasons to love solid surface countertops.

#1 Price

While solid surface countertops tend to cost a bit more than laminate, it’s often worth those few extra pennies. When it comes to designing a magazine-quality kitchen, granite is a popular choice — and for good reason. With that said, solid surface materials like acrylic closely resemble granite (and other natural stones) at a lesser cost, making them a great mid-range material for homeowners who want the beauty of natural stone on a budget.

Granite and quartz have long been favorites amongst homeowners and buyers, thanks to their unique beauty. We’ve already established that solid surface countertops can closely resemble the beauty of natural stone. You’ll find acrylic countertops in a wide range of colors and patterns that compliment the latest kitchen trends, from crisp white with touches of colored glass, to rich brown with flecks of black, mahogany and gray. As an added bonus, solid surface acrylic is the only material that can include an integrated sink, creating a seamless appearance.


#3 Durability

Like natural stone, solid surface countertop materials may scratch. Thankfully, acrylic countertops are repairable and renewable, with a consistent design throughout. Scratches and blemishes can easily be buffed out, if necessary. As an added bonus, solid surface countertops are not prone to cracking, as can happen with natural stone. Solid surface countertops are also low-maintenance, and a breeze to keep clean. Best of all, they are non-porous, which helps to keep stains, mildew and bacteria away.
