Solid surface materials are synthetic and comprised of man-made ingredients such as acrylic or polyester resins, along with mineral fillers, marble dust, and other pigments. As the name suggests, solid surface is completely solid and lacks the porous composition that renders natural stone — like marble, granite, and limestone — vulnerable to stains and bacteria. They're an ideal material to consider for high-splash areas like the kitchen and bathroom ... because spills happen. Solid surface vanity tops don't need to be professionally sealed, ever, and can be cleaned daily with a just a damp microfiber cloth.
And since they are manufactured, they're available in a wide range of colors from neutral to cobalt, as well as textures and patterns, many of which look remarkably like wood, stone, and glass, without the steep price tag and associated upkeep. Like linoleum, the color and pattern in solid surfaces runs all the way through from top to bottom, so dents and scratches are less noticeable and can be buffed out.
Solid surface vanity tops are becoming increasingly popular for use in residential spaces because they can be customized for virtually any space, in any shape, color, and dimension. If you love an integrated sink half as much as we do, solid surface vanity top is the ideal material to make this dream a reality. They're also anti-microbial, making them appealing for commercial use in high-traffic, germ-prone spaces like hospitals and gyms (also for residential bathrooms and kitchens).
The most familiar name brand associated with solid surface is probably Corian (owned by DuPont), which actually invented the material more then 50 years ago and actively produces new colorways and designs today. Wilsonart, KKR, and Formica are competitive brands also manufacturing solid surface vanity top.
Solid surface vanity sink aren't cheap, but they're definitely more affordable than engineered or natural stone alternatives.

They do scratch easily, so you'll want to be careful with your razors. If scratches do occur, not to worry: they can be buffed out. Keep in mind that dark colors show scratches and wear and tear more easily than lighter colors.

One of the biggest pluses for solid surface vanity top is that they're as non-porous as any material can be, so stains and germs can't penetrate them. Plus, they're easy to keep clean and heat resistant (but not heatproof). They're more affordable than natural and engineered stone, while still resembling them. They're available in a variety of colors, textures, patterns, and can even be custom colored and sized if you want something that isn't readily available.
Solid surfaces are prone to scratches and should never be cut on directly. They're not heatproof, and although they resemble natural stone, they lack the same depth as the real thing.
