Hi macs or other solid surfaces? Tell me about it.
Hi all. We are in the process of a full remodel of a home we just bought. I have a kitchen design worked out, and I'm leaning towards solid surface countertops. We considered quartz, but it really would push the budget. Granite would work fine budget wise, but i really don't love the feel of granite. I'm looking for something a little softer and warmer feeling. I searched and didn't find any posts about some of the more budget friendly solid surface materials, specifically lg hi macs.
I am wondering about anyone's experience with hi macs. I know it can have a tendency to scratch easier, and needs to be protected from heat etc. I have had laminate countertops for the last 9 years and they look new still. No scratches or burns, so I'm not too worried.
If it helps, we are going with a full overlay shaker style door in a light to medium stain. Probably from kraftmaid.
