The material is held together with resins and shaped into slabs for use in countertops. The material can also be molded into one-piece units with sinks integrated into the countertop. Solid surface countertops are very versatile and give a reasonable and much more affordable alternative to granite and engineered quartz. They're not difficult to clean either.
Don't be afraid to mix materials. This Chicago kitchen contasts the Absolute Black granite with a leathered finish of pale wood on the island. Gray cabinets are topped with a Silestone counter in subtly-veined Pulsar.
Touches of brass accent a New Jersey kitchen. The Silestone countertops in Lagoon have the look of marble but are stain-resistant. In this beach house kitchen, the gray veining in the quartzite on the island complements the color of the Caesarstone countertops.
Granite tile countertops are generally less admired than solid granite or even modular granite countertops, but they are an option for homeowners seeking to save money by installing the countertop themselves. The many grout seams make upkeep and maintenance difficult.
A more realistic DIY option for homeowners who want granite is to build a countertop from granite tiles. These are small, manageable tiles that resemble ceramic tiles and are installed in much the same way, adhered with thin-set adhesives to a core of cement-board.
This tiny kitchen was inspired by the outdoors. Along with sky-blue cabinets and cloud-white walls, there's also a Silestone counter in a deep forest green. It acts like a neutral, so it can go with almost anything. Marble and casual don't exactly go together, so if you're looking to keep things low-key, opt for butcher block. Paired with pale oak floors and plank cabinetry, the room's filled with warmth and informality.
Solid surface is a manmade material originally created as an alternative to stone, designed to resemble granite and other natural stone. It is made mostly of blends of synthetic acrylic and polyester materials, sometimes with a small amount of natural stone dust blended in.
