Corian in your mobile home or recreational vehicle
Long gone are the days of “roughing it” in under powered vehicles good only for a cramped sleep at your idyllic camping spot.
High tech recreational vehicles have evolved in the twenty first century to take the ultimate in luxury and comfort to all the places you want to see and experience, without having to pay for it in cramped, uncomfortable, leaking, sleeping cocoons.
Mobile homes and recreational vehicles have become the pinnacle for self-styled holidays in exotic places not normally accessed otherwise. The freedom to tour and live in comfort in any location of your choice has become a major appeal for modern families.
With stylish integrated basins and sinks, kitchens that are harmoniously designed and attractively fitted in a large variety of patterns, colours, hues and textures; elegant dining and sleeping areas; properly finished off with sophisticated bathrooms with moulded shower trays, basins and walls, Corian can turn your vehicle into five-star accommodation in the location of your choice. Even your serving trays can match your elegant kitchen.
The non-porous solid surface, joined seamlessly, is highly resistant to dirt and stains, and with nowhere for dirt of bacteria to hide, is easy to clean, leaving your time free for the important things you came to do, without even the usual worries of stomach ailments in unhygienic circumstances.
The classiness of Corian is eminently suitable for elegant designs in restricted areas, giving the chimera of spacious dining and luxuriating areas in the confines of a road vehicle.
What else is possible?
When one thinks about Corian, worktops automatically come to mind, as Corian is one of the premier solid surface materials for flat and two-dimensional designs. However, inventive minds and evolving technology have advanced the creative use of Corian since making its debut more than five decades ago.
Corian is no longer only used in two-dimensional designs in horizontal and vertical applications such as worktops, wall cladding and flooring. Corian has progressed into a vast array of three-dimensional designs and even boasts its own exhibition of artistic applications at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art. In 2000 Italian design maestro Ettro Sotssas, put on display 14 abstract works of art, named Exercises in another material: Corian.
Other examples of artistic application of Corian
- an award winning “Reef floor lamp” by artist Stockholm artist Anki Gneib. Such creations can add special charm to a modern lounge, bar, entertainment, or public area.
- the Accondi studio in the Bronx Museum of the Arts, by Vito Accondi, using Corian slabs manipulated to resemble fluttering ribbons used for seating.
- avant-garde Corian partition designs, inspired by undulating water and ripples to separate bathroom, kitchen and lounge at the “Super Surfaces”show in London in 2009.
Such creativity and resourceful thinking have benefited designers, architects, kitchen installers and home owners to reap the rewards of the many design applications, form-ability, colours, textures and patterns implemented by DuPont, the factory that manufactures Corian, and the fabricators of Corian worktops, accessories and artistic embellishments.
Integrated Corian sinks and basins for high end kitchens and bathrooms
Integrated and colour coordinated sinks and basins are no longer only restricted to be highly functional, but thanks to modern technology and design, they create a perfect balance of performance and design for an unmatched aesthetic appeal in the kitchens, bathrooms, bar areas and entertainment areas in private homes.
An integrated basin or sink is customizable and creates the impression that the entire design has been cast from the same slab of reconstituted natural stone, making it possible to achieve anything from a rustic, to traditional, sleekly elegant, futuristic, artistic, or high-tech appearance. You can complete the picture with a wide variety of coordinated back splashes, accessories and appliances.
Seamless under mounting entirely eliminates rims, lips and borders where food particles, dirt, germs or bacteria can be trapped, making it completely hygienic and easy to clean and maintain. All that Is required is to wash the sink with water and mild soap. For heavier dirt and stains, a solution of household bleach can be left to soak in the basin or sink for a few hours and then rinse with water or wash and dry with a soft cloth.
Ingenious Corian bathroom and kitchen accessories, including soap dishes, litter bins, shower fittings, kitchen fittings, and many more, have become available and are being added to continuously.
Taps and faucets
Corian worktops and basins can be coordinated and colour matched with almost any other material, including brass, copper, chrome and gold. Taps and faucets can be chosen to match the design, colour, texture and pattern of your Corian worktops, basins and sinks.
