Solid surface countertops offer a seamless look with low-maintenance style.
By Alice DanielMore in Kitchen
If you like a seamless look, think solid surface. Known by its brand names — Corian, Staron, Gibraltar and Avonite — and designed to look like natural stone, this easy-to-maintain synthetic product can be molded to fit any design specification. You can even have an integral sink made to match the countertop.
Design Tip: Solid surface looks best in a contemporary kitchen, especially if you use a shade of white, says designer Tim Scott of XTC Design Incorporated in Toronto.
Clean with liquid detergent and water. You can buff out stains with a scouring pad and abrasive cleanser.
