They can be totally seamless with one-piece moulded sinks and upstands. As a material, it can be thermoformed into curves, engraved with patterns and logos, back-lit and can have built-in wireless charging for smart phones.Corian is a brand of acrylic solid surfaces, there are others such as Tri-Stone, Hannex and LG Hi-Macs.

IDEAL USE

Great for wet areas where the sink and splashbacks can be integrated seamlessly. Also ideal for large areas or kitchens with lots of corners, where you don’t want to see joints.

IDEAL STYLE

Suits most styles with a varied colour offering, from plain white to textured onyx looks, through to bold colours.

DURABILITY

Solid surfaces are non-porous, so are stain and water resistant. Whilst it is heat resistant, it is important to minimize direct heat exposure to protect your surface. Scratches can be sanded out and major damage can be repaired.

MAINTENANCE

It is best to wipe up spills as they occur. Generally, a damp microfiber cloth used with a standard household kitchen spray should remove most stains.
