Natural stones such as granite and marble are popular options for kitchen or bathroom countertops but Corian countertops provide a durable and affordable option with plenty of design flexibility. Corian countertops are manufactured by DuPont and made from the man-made materials acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate. Graniterra Kitchen, Bath, & Stone Design Studio in St. Louis provides and installs Corian countertops for commercial and residential applications. These countertops are an ideal option for applications in which natural stone is not preferred.
One advantage of Corian countertops is their design versatility. Because these countertops are fabricated from man-made materials, they can come in a seemingly endless variety of colors and patterns. Corian countertops (http://www.graniterra.com/corian-countertops
) can be fabricated to match the colors of your current interior design or mimic the look of natural stones such as granite or marble. Light reflects off of the colors of a Corian countertop in a unique way that compliments surrounding stainless steel and glass features. The other important design feature of Corian countertops is the seamless joint between pieces that is created by using a two-part acrylic epoxy to join them together.
In addition to the versatile design options, Corian countertops are also very durable and easy to maintain. Corian countertops are fabricated with solid surfaces that can resist damage from typical daily use and prevent them from peeling or falling apart. They are also resistant to warping from excessive humidity or moisture. The durability of these countertops makes them easy to maintain as they resist stains, sunlight, and heat, though not direct heat. The seamless joints also help make them easier to maintain because debris cannot gather in the seam. Common household cleaners or soapy water is all that is needed to clean Corian countertops.
Corian countertops are an excellent option for applications in which natural stone is not preferred. They are durable with endless design options, easy to maintain, and they are more affordable than most natural stone options. It is important to remember that direct heat and sharp objects can damage the surface so it is best to avoid direct contact with these objects. Graniterra (http://www.graniterra.com/
