Nowhere have changes in solid surface materials been more obvious or more beautifying than in our kitchen and bathrooms. The choices are astounding: thousands of patterns, designs, colors and blends of natural or synthetic marble are available to complement our homes and our lifestyles. These solid surface composites mimic the patterns of natural stone such as granite and marble, but are not nearly as expensive or hard to maintain. Solid surface composites combine art, design and beauty to enhance the lives of everyone.
