Earning a title as a top solid-surface countertop, Corian is resistant to stains, scratches and elemental damages, like wear from excess sunlight. Like granite, Corian is solid all the way through, making it extremely durable and a top choice for a counter surface that will see a lot of use.

Corian is made by DuPont from a nonporous acrylic polymer. The surface is available in a number of colors, ranging from white to fire engine red to a speckled cobalt blue. The color and pattern are consistent throughout the countertop, so it will not change its appearance with wear and tear that naturally occurs over time.

The overall look of a Corian countertop is smooth and similar to that of a stone surface. Damage can be easily repaired with scrubbing or light sanding.

A Corian countertop can be pricey, but they are a less costly option when compared to granite, saving you an average of $50 to $120 per square foot.

To keep Corian in top shape, do not chop or cut directly on the countertop surface. Setting a hot pot or pan directly on the countertop might also cause damage.
