We’re not going to claim that solid surface is the answer for EVERY institutional, commercial, or residential project. However, we can certainly share the benefits of solid surface when it comes to university residence hall showers, commercial countertop applications, bathroom sink vanity tops, and many other situations.
From its safety and durability to its beauty and flexibility, solid surface just might be your best bet. Check out the infographic here to see if solid surface will work for your project.
Universities & Healthcare
For institutional settings, like universities and healthcare facilities, its safety, longevity, and low maintenance make solid surface a strong option to consider. Whether a retrofit scenario, a brand new hospital wing, or a residence hall expansion, solid surface practically eliminates many of the concerns that typically arise from other choices, like:
- Porous material (allowing bacteria build-up)
- Hard to clean
- Difficult to repair
- Lack of flexibility in design and functionality
Solid surface is the opposite of each of these, which makes it a great selection for your next project.
Commercial & Hospitality
Hotels, restaurants, and offices often use solid surface because of its durability and beautiful, custom design options. In fact, we recently created a 100 percent custom-fabricated countertop solution for national eatery Dean & DeLuca that included 70 linear feet of undulating hills and valleys of Meridian Solid Surface material to immerse the consumer into the food experience.
Homeowners, home builders, and remodelers choose solid surface for its durability, easy cleanup, and beauty, often selecting from a variety of textures and colors that can mimic granite, marble, and stone, at only a fraction of the cost of these other materials.
Clearly, you’ll need to consider all the specific factors of your project; but in looking at the many benefits of solid surface highlighted here, it should likely be one of your top choices.
