Solid-surface countertops come in a wide range of colors.

Solid-Surface Materials

Designed to look like natural stone, solid surface is one of the most popular countertop options available. Known by its brand names such as Corian, Staron, Gilbraltar and Avonite, this easy-to-maintain synthetic product can be molded to fit any design specification. Tip: Use a solid-surface material if you're concerned about mold or mildew. The nonporous, hypoallergenic surface discourages the growth of these allergens.

Solid-Surface Maintenance: Being nonporous, it's easy to clean.

Solid-Surface Cost: $75 to $150 a linear foot, installed.
