Non-porous, stain-resistant and cheaper than granite, Corian kitchen countertops are a solid-surface countertop that's available in a wide variety of colors and patterns (more than 100) to suit your aesthetic needs.
Most often seen with a matte finish, Corian may also be polished or high-gloss; Corian countertops are often said to mimic the look of granite or marble—but without the unsightly seams.
Because it's man-made (Corian is manufactured from acrylic or plastic), Corian is referred to as a synthetic countertop material—but don't let that deter you from choosing Corian over natural stone surfaces.
Corian is a high-end design option, and one of its main advantages is that if you use the material for countertops, backsplash and a sink, it will look like it's all just one uninterrupted surface (just think—no lip or seam to catch unsightly crumbs and debris!). As with laminate, hot pots, pans and knives can cause damage to Corian countertops, so you will need to use trivets or cutting boards.
