What is Corian?
If you are looking for a quote for new worktops then fill out the form here or send us an email with a sketch and approximate dimensions attached and we will send you an estimated price by return. If you are happy with the price and want to go ahead we can then arrange for a site visit to make a template to ensure that your Corian fits exactly. The lead time between template and installation is usually around 2 weeks and once the tops are fabricated we will contact you to arrange a date to install them.
If you are keeping your existing kitchen and are just replacing your counters you will need to factor in the cost to dispose of your old worktops and to disconnect and reconnect your sink and hob, it will cost considerably more to do this for a gas hob than it will for an electric one.
We also sell kitchens, so if you are having a complete makeover why not consider us for the whole project, we will be able to provide you with a more competetive price for your tops if we are also going to be your kitchen supplier as well.
Corian is brand of acrylic solid surface worktops made by Dupont. There are other manufacturers of acrylic counters, they are just not so well known. We also sell Hanex and Hi Macs which are very similar and covered by comparable guarantees.
Solid surface worktops like Corian are so called because any joins in the work surface are filled with a paste and polished so that they become invisible, giving the impression that the entire countertop is one single piece of material. Sinks, drainers and upstands can also be seamlessly integrated into the worktop. Besides aesthetics one of the most obvious benefits of this is low maintenance and easy cleaning. If you have a conventional worktop you will know that the areas that attract dirt are the join between the worktop and wall and the rim between the sink, drainer and worksurface.
See the Corian sink selection on this page.
Acrylic is very versatile and can be used to make tops of any size, shape, depth and thickness from 13mm upwards. For very thin worksurfaces just the Corian is used, thereafter it is mounted onto MDF, so a standard 38mm thick worktop is 25mm MDF and 13mm of Corian. That is why the majority of 50 or 100mm thick worktops you see, especially those on islands where the top is also wrapped down the sides, are acrylic because apart from the profiled edge the fabricator increases the amount of MDF not the amount of acrylic.
These chairs are made from Corian.
Pretty much anything can be made using Corian, chairs, tables etc. We have manufactured bespoke sideboards out of it for customers looking for something a bit out of the ordinary for open plan kitchens. For others we have used it as wall cladding so the entire work surface, window sills and walls are one seamless entity.
Another attractive property of acylic surfaces is that they are fairly easily repaired if you should be unfortunate enough to damage them. Trained fabricators will be able to cut the damaged area out and refit a new piece, some extra piece of mind if you are a bit devil may care in the kitchen.
Corian is not cheap, cost are comparable to granite and quartz worktops. The 2 biggest determinates of the price of Corian worktops are the size of the kitchen and the colour that you choose. As you can see at the top of this page there are 4 price bands, band 1 being the cheapest and 4 the most expensive.
