In the modern age of design, Corian worktops have become a popular choice for kitchen surfaces. There are many reasons why this is the case, and this article will discuss them below. But first, let’s talk about what Corian actually is!

Corian is a kind of man-made material that has been designed to look like natural stone. Corian is made from  a mixture of resin, minerals and synthetic pigments. The surface is then polished until it has an attractive sheen that resembles natural stone.

The process for making Corian is pretty intensive; the material needs to be heated up to a high temperature before it can have its color added and mixed in with the other ingredients. It can be used in both residential and commercial kitchens; it can even be found in some public spaces such as airports or hotels. The cool thing about Corian is that you don’t need to seal it with any type of coating because it already resists water damage on its own! That means that you can simply wipe it clean with a damp cloth if anything spills onto the surface.

Why Has It Become So Popular In Recent Years?

Now on to why this material has become so popular in modern homes! It’s easy to maintain, durable and looks great – there are many reasons for its popularity. For example, Corian is resistant to heat up to 260 degrees Fahrenheit which means you can use it for cooking and baking. The glossy finish is perfect for modern kitchens where people like to cook and entertain their guests all at once!

It’s also non-porous which means you won’t get any stains or dirt trapped between the layers of material. You can simply wipe it clean with a damp cloth if anything spills onto the surface and you won’t have to worry about stains or odours being absorbed into your worktop!

Corian Worktops are Affordable

Corian worktops are one of the most affordable worktops on the market today. They are similar in price to laminated wood and acrylic worktops, which is great for student accommodation or first time buyers on a budget.

Corian worktops are easy to install, so you won’t have any need for an expensive professional installation either! You can hire someone from your local hardware store or find out how to do it yourself with the help of some Youtube videos and guides online.

Corian Worktops Are Very Durable

Another reason why Corian worktops are so popular is because they’re very durable. They don’t scratch easily, and small scratches can be sanded away too!
