Anyone have Corian in the kitchen?
Pros, cons etc....

Looking at alternatives to Granite at the moment. Pics would be great!

Many thanks.

We've had it now for about 3 years. No real downsides for us.

It can be joined and shaped which was the bonus for us as our work surface is shaped and looks like one continous piece.

Only thing I hadn't quite realised is we were asked what thickness we wanted ours. The corian is about 13mm thick it's an end piece they add to give the illusion it's a thicker piece!

That said I've no complaints and it comes up great with barkeepers friend which I now use on the car windscreen :thumb:

We have it in the office breakout spaces at work.
It looks quite nice but don't have any photos I'm afraid.

Just realised you were looking for pics. Not got any so I'll take a couple and post them :thumb:

Just had this fitted last month and really happy with it, 50mm deep with 100mm up stands and seamless large basin all in a satin white. Bar keepers friend is a must to prevent staining but no issues so far , and if not able to remove a mark can be polished out in situ all complete with a 10 year warranty. You won,t be disappointed.

Just realised it's actually over 3 1/2 year since this was done. As I said pieces can be joins and filled so it gives a seamless appearance and both pieces don't have any joins :thumb:

Ew really don't like that

Looks tacky and the sort of thing you'd have at a school around the science lab

Don't have it in my kitchen but know someone with it in theirs. I really like it, can get loads of colours, seamless joins and can be buffed up where it gets scratched

People think that granite is is indestructible and easy to maintain but in reality its a pain to keep clean as you have to buy special granite cleaner to keep it looking its best and it does mark and chip quite easily.

I'm quoting you for mt8 s kitchen not mine :p

Not sure what school you went to but it must've been a lot posher than mine :lol:

Each to their own it's like cars as we see by the yes or no threads on here always good to hear others opinions.

On the original post I would definitely recommend it and as others have said if done properly you will not see the joins. Also if there is any damage it can be sanded and/or filled and again if done properly it will never be seen :thumb:
