Solid Surfacing is gaining a lot of love from me lately. The ease of use, recycle-ability, the cleanliness, the stability of its dimensions… the list goes on. Its the perfect material for kitchens, bathrooms, outdoor areas and where kids want to play. It blends extremely well with different types of metals as well, with stainless steel and anodized aluminum being my favorites. For modern homes, solid surface products (Corian, Hi Macs) are nearly perfect.
