Corian has become a more popular choice for bathroom countertops, attractively approximating the look of natural stone—and if you're considering this material for your bath space, you'll want to browse the range of Corian countertop prices for bathrooms.

Bold and Trendy Small-Bathroom Makeovers

A Contemporary + Colorful Transformation

Before, the contractor-grade en suite powder room of this guest room was lacking in color and personality. With a timeline of just two days, bold hues and simple changes would reinvent it as a personalized place for guests to pamper themselves.

Fresh Walls

To turn the once-drab powder room into something bold and cheerful, the walls and ceiling were painted navy blue in a semigloss finish. The dark-colored walls and ceiling help tone down the intense apple-green paint of the adjacent guest room. Tip: When painting small spaces which open up to larger rooms, keep in mind that painting them the same color will unite the two spaces whereas using contrasting colors helps delineate them.

Creating a Color Palette

Similar to any other room in the house, layering colors in bathrooms is done effectively and practically with accessories. Keep the color palette consistent by choosing bath towels and hand towels in similar shades found on the window treatments or wall covering. Tip: Rather than matching colors exactly, interior designers recommend choosing colors which are slightly off from one another. This will keep a room feeling layered instead of matchy-matchy.

Light It Up

Lighting is one of the most important elements of a successful bathroom. Most contractor-grade bathrooms come with exposed-bulb vanity lights which cast an unflattering yellow glow on skin. Swap the existing fixture for something with diffused lighting such as a frosted-glass sconce. Once illuminated, the soft glow from the glass will cast flattering light onto the skin and allow true colors to read more naturally. If the existing junction box is centered directly over the mirror, it's easy to change out the fixtures without a hired electrician as long as the power is shut off and proper safety precautions are followed. Tip: For situations in which a junction box needs to be moved, it's best to call an electrician and prepare to budget approximately $200 for labor costs and materials.

Playing With Pattern

Pattern plays a big part in decorating small rooms effectively, especially in task-oriented spaces where accessories and decorative objects need to be kept to a minimum. In this powder room, ikat linen is used on the window's Roman shade, instantly taking the focus off the space's lack of square footage, instead playing up the navy-blue and apple-green color scheme. Tip: The key to using pattern successfully in a small space is to choose a repeat with the proper scale. Over-scale patterns are often cut off by walls less than eight feet in width, while small repeats can become too busy. The safest choice for pattern in a small space is a medium-sized repeat.

Clever Repurposing

When storage space is at a premium, the repurposing of everyday objects into clever space-saving solutions can make a tiny powder room much more practical. Consider hanging old baskets, crates or organizers sideways on walls for extra surface space. This will keep travel-sized toiletries neatly stored and easily accessible.

Smart Carpeting

While carpet may not seem like a great fit for wet spaces such as kitchens and bathrooms, it can often be practical in low-traffic powder rooms. Cover up dated tiles quickly and effectively by using bath mats in multiples. Once placed side-by-side, the seams may fade away, resulting in the look of custom, wall-to-wall carpet. Some great styles to do this trick with are shag, flokati, textured stripe and sisal.

Adding Height

Interior designers refer to ceilings as the fifth wall. While many homeowners leave their ceilings painted flat white, designers and decorators consider them important factors for cohesively decorating rooms. When painting small bathrooms, consider adding the same color to the ceiling. This will cause the points where the ceiling meets the walls to recede, creating the illusion of more height. Additionally, painting ceilings may help highlight architectural details such as crown molding.

Vanity Gems

Hardware is considered the jewelry of a room. Not only are drawer pulls, knobs and handles inexpensive, they're also easy to change. To add new life to a small powder room or bathroom, consider using hardware as an opportunity to tie a color scheme together or introduce interesting textures and finishes.

Corian is generally considered a great budget option in comparison to granite or manufactured quartz, both of which are quite expensive. Corian is also available in a range of styles and colors, so you're unlikely to have any problem matching the style of your bath space.

For basic Corian countertops, you can expect to spend $40 - 60 per square foot for materials and installation. This type of Corian countertop will not be of the highest quality—it may be less durable than higher quality Corian, and susceptible to scratching or chipping, for example—but it will still have a beautiful appearance at a budget price.

For a better quality Corian countertop material, you can expect to pay $50 - $70 per square foot. This Corian type will be slightly more durable, and more resistant to scratching and chipping.

Finally, on the high end of the scale, you can expect to pay around $60 - 90 per square foot for Corian countertops that will be about as close to indestructible as any material in your home.
