looking for the best material that is inexpensive and will stand up to two kids, infant and toddler ages. We love granite but that is not in the budget right now.

What materials or products would you recommend. Thanks

I can't think of anything colder or more boring than stainless steel-that's what they use in institutions and prisons. It's certainly indestructible but that's about all it has going for it. If Corian is out of your budget range check out LG HI-MACS or Staron at kitchen dealers or home centers. Both are acrylic based solid surfaces made in South Korea, and are very competetivley priced. HI-MACS currently has a free sink program at ***** until Dec 15, 2004.

I will try again with the name to see if I can fool the censors. It's a home center starting with L and ending with S, 5 letters. Avonite and Corian will be similarly priced with HI-MACS and Staron somewhat lower. The Corian Select Series colors are also very competitive and sometimes you can find a free or low cost sink for it. HI-MACS has a 15 year installed and transferable warranty as opposed to 10 years on the other products.
