Corian Creativity and Colour Constraints For Kitchen Worktops

Granite, wood, quartz, laminate, ceramic, and glass are all long-time favourites for worktops in the great British kitchen. However, each material has its own set of advantages and disadvantages, and they all suffer from a ridged structure and a lack of flexibility. With their ability to take on a wide range of shapes, colours, and looks, goods like Corian, Staron, Hi-Macs, and other exciting acrylic materials have a huge market opportunity. To learn more about the PREMIUM WORKTOPS DIRECT LTD – Caesarstone Worktops.

Corian is by far the most common brand of acrylic material in the world. The giant DuPont corporation first introduced acrylic to the market in 1967, and its success and appeal has only grown since then. It wasn’t until 1999 that the well-known Korean LG company generated significant competition by launching their own Hi-Macs acrylic range into Europe, followed a few years later by Samsung with their Staron offering.

Corian has and continues to be used for a wide variety of applications, but one of the most popular is as a kitchen worktop. This is due to its many other attributes, including stain resistance, resilience, durability, smoothness, ruggedness, impact resistance, ease of maintenance, beauty and appearance – the list goes on and on! However, even the all-conquering Corian has its shortcomings and issues in the sense of kitchen worktops, which I will address in the remainder of this post.

Without a doubt, one of the most, if not THE most attractive characteristic of Corian is the opportunity to enter it in a completely inconspicuous manner. And it is because of this that Corian has a significant advantage over alternative materials, which are often only available in three-metre lengths. A Corian work surface, on the other hand, may be as long as you need it to be because it flows effortlessly over all the units, through the sink – even continuing over the side and down to the floor as an end panel if you like – but more commonly, up the walls into a splash back. A special ‘coved’ transition between surface angles can also be used to accomplish this. This not only gives Corian a rather appealing look, but it also strengthens the point that it is the most hygienic of surfaces because dirt and bacteria have nowhere to hide. The joining method can also be used to make various thicknesses. The regular Corian Material is only 13mm thick, but it can be built up to any thickness, adding to the list of benefits over other options.
