Similar to the quartz-based engineered stone countertops are the seamless, manufactured acrylic-based ones that are called "Solid Surface" counters. While they also offer a wide assortment of colors, patterns and finishes, they dont have the natural look of stone. They do resist stains, moisture, sunlight and heat, and inhibit the growth of mold and bacteria. However, they are vulnerable to hot pans and stains which can damage the surface. Solid Surface countertops are custom-made and their acrylic material can be formed to include an integrated sink with seamless installation. Brands of Solid Surface countertops include Avonite, Corian, and Swanstone.

You may need an orbital sander or use the sand paper supplied with your kit, and apply by hand, to sand down your existing countertops. Have plenty of clean rags on hand to wipe down your sanded surface and remove dust. Use paper to tape off any areas such as flooring that you wish to protect from paint drips. Always use recommended material and instructions that comes with your kit for clean-up of recommended application tools. Blend your countertop paint base coat of paint as instructions indicate. Apply countertop paint base coat with squeegee or recommended applicator per your enclosed instructions.
Concrete countertops made their debut into restaurants, retail establishments, and homes over a decade ago; however, they have grown to be more accepted in the last few years. Once a countertop material for only the do-it-yourselfers and the exceptionally rich, concrete countertops are now starting to make their way into mid-priced homes and common commercial applications. Utilizing concrete countertops has become an increasingly popular way for designers and homeowners to achieve a look unparalleled by any other material. Concrete countertops can add the perfect design element to almost any design style, including traditional, earthy, modern, industrial, contemporary, and more.
