Corian Worktops

Corian worktops are increasing in popularity, and for good reason. Corian solid surface offers design versatility, functionality and durability. It is an incredibly solid material that is a very popular choice for kitchen worktops due to its durability and strength. Corian is made from 1/3 acrylic resin and 2/3 natural minerals, which together creates a very tough material.

If you are thinking of having new worktops installed in your home and are undecided about which material to choose, here are some of things you need to know about Corian worktops before making your choice…


Corian keeps it’s good looks and survives the impact nicks and cuts that can occur with daily wear and tear. Due to the way that Corian is constructed, it is strong and durable. Once the acrylic has set completely it develops an incredibly tough outer shell, which can withstand a lot of weight. Again, this robust reliability is brilliant when you consider what items you will need to keep on your kitchen counters, or if something should accidentally be dropped on them. It increases the longevity of your worktop.


Corian solid surface is non-porous with a smooth, virtually seamless appearance. With proper maintenance, the material does not promote the growth of mould, mildew and bacteria. Its impermeability results in it being easy to maintain and highly resistant to staining. Corian® is a non-porous surface and this prevents dirt and stains from penetrating the material. Marks and stains stay on the surface but can easily be removed with a Scotchbrite®pad and household cleaner. However, we do recommend that spills should be cleaned up immediately after they occur.
