Corian countertops are one of the most popular premium materials for high-end kitchens, and offer homeowners a great opportunity for adding value and aesthetic appeal to their homes – but is it the right choice for you? Here are some insights from the specialists in Corian countertop edges.
What are Corian countertops?
This is DuPont’s flagship solid surface countertop brand, a 66% to 33% man-made blend of resins and minerals. Made with real granite that is ground and blended, the result is a more uniform stone surface that offers a more subtle texture and look than slab granite. Because it is so rich in granite, it is in a similar cost bracket of around $0-$65 per square foot (installed).
Maintenance and cleaning
Corian is fairly non-porous and very hygienic. However, unlike granite, it doesn’t need to be sealed every 2 years to prevent stains and any stains that do occur can be buffed out. It is also resistant to acidic materials and any minor scratches can be removed easily. While it can be scorched by very hot pans and pots, it is generally heat resistant.
Like other stone countertops, Corian will need to be installed by professionals and you will have to have cabinets that can handle the weight of the countertops. Because of its more uniform look, seams are virtually invisible, giving it a very clean and uniform appearance.
Customization and edging
Because it is man-made, Corian countertops come in a wide range of very different colors, from classic black, grey and white to vibrant reds and iridescent hues. In addition to a unique color scheme, you also have the opportunity to include custom edge profiles in your design to add that final personal touch. These edges are perfectly matched to your countertop and can be created in single or double bevel, bullnose, curved or other designs that match your overall aesthetic.
