A nonporous, seamless surface that mimics the look of granite and stone, solid-surface countertops are a consistently popular option in the kitchen because of the acrylic material's versatility, durability, ease of repair and (in many cases) even a 10-year warranty.

Manufactured under names like Corian, Wilsonart, Staron, Swanstone and Formica, solid-surface countertops are tough, hard-working surfaces. They're available in dozens of colors and patterns that mimic the look of stone.

Solid-surface countertops also eliminate much of the hassle of upkeep. They're easy to repair, resist stains and scratches, and require little to no maintenance.

Perhaps the most endearing quality of solid-surface countertops is the fact that the material can be cut, carved, cast and formed—without any visible seams—to the shape of your choice. This means homeowners can integrate design features like a sink or backsplash while at the same time eliminating those tiny but pesky gaps (where the counter meets the sink, or the wall). This means water, crumbs and bacteria won't have a place to hide on them.
