Kitchen and bathrooms are vulnerable to dirt because they are areas where a lot of activities frequently take place. In order to keep them clean, walls and countertops found in these parts of the house are covered with materials that allow them to be easily maintained. The materials commonly used are tiles and solid surface. The advantage of the latter is they do not have grout where gunk builds up that would require a more aggressive style of cleaning.
Solid surface is suitable for those who want to achieve a seamless countertop installation. It comes in single piece made from granite, marble or quartz unlike tiles that are bought in several quantities and different colors and designs that can be mixed and matched. Even though giving solid surface a style is not possible, it contains other features that make it appear elegant. Almost all the luxurious hotel and business establishments that I know use this cover. They have it installed not only on kitchen and bathrooms but also on their reception area, bar work surface and vanity sink as it provides functional and decorative qualities.
Since solid surfaces are sold in one large piece, they are normally built according to the size of the area where it will be placed. They are available in various designs and colors which allow you to choose the one that will go along with the theme you are trying to create. A feature of solid surface which makes it distinct from tiles is the edges. Its edge can be customized to make the countertop appear more stylish and unique.
Solid surface is increasingly becoming popular because it is durable, high impact resistant and non-porous which prevents the formation of molds and mildew. It does not require constant cleaning but a little touch up and wipe can surely help to keep it looking new for years.
