If you want a natural stone alternative that’s cheaper, durable, easy to clean, and beautiful, choose Corian® solid surfaces. Lately, more people have been abandoning quartz and granite worktops for Corian®. Besides affordability, it excels where traditional worktop materials fall short; versatility.
Corian® is so versatile that you can use it everywhere in your home. Here are its uses, including the lesser-known.
Nowadays, most high-end smartphones and other digital devices support wireless charging. For example, if you place a power transmitter underneath a Corian® worktop, you can wirelessly charge your gadget by placing it on the solid surface above the transmitter.
It’s worth noting that placing the transmitter underneath doesn’t transform the entire worktop into a wireless charger. Instead, it’s the space directly above it. That said, Corian® has excellent conductivity, ensuring your device gains power as fast as regular chargers.
Corian® is gaining popularity in the nautical sector due to its ability to withstand moisture, humidity, saltiness, winds, and high temperatures. In addition, the material is non-porous and thermo-formable, qualities that guarantee robustness against the adverse conditions experienced at sea.
Moreover, Corian® is beautiful. Ship makers use it for wall cladding, shower surrounds, roulette tables, restaurants, etc., in luxurious yachts and cruise ships. Besides attractiveness, these worktops are easy to clean and maintain.
Interior Vertical Walls
Another unique application of Corian® solid surfaces is interior vertical walls. Traditionally, people used tiles or wooden planks to add a unique aesthetic to otherwise bland concrete walls. Corian® is more attractive than wood and ceramic tiles because of its uninterrupted design. In addition, the joints are too refined to notice with the naked eye.
Additionally, Corian® is waterproof and resistant to bacteria, mould, and mildew. You can decorate the surfaces with your preferred art to create a beautiful, long-lasting mosaic on your walls. This way, you won’t be confined to the blandness of drywall and coloured paint.
Corian® washplanes are the ultimate bathroom solution that combines beauty and functionality. Customisability is the most significant benefit of these new products – you can design them to suit your style. For instance, you can choose between modern and traditional designs.
Apart from Corian®’s known benefits, these washplanes have a concealed drainage system. In high-traffic areas, people leave large objects that can potentially block the drainage system. When this happens, it impacts the aesthetic appeal and increases the risk of diseases. Corian® washplanes feature a thin strip that prevents drainage blockers from messing up your bathroom.
Corian® offers several cladding options to improve on existing designs. For example, you can capitalise on its thermo formability to emboss it on an existing solid surface to enhance visual appeal and durability.
It instantly transforms the surface if you melt Corian® and superimpose it on wood or concrete. It becomes more attractive, easier to clean, and more resistant to bacteria, germs, and mould. You can cut the Corian® into any shape, size, and design.
Although kitchen and bathroom countertops are the primary application areas for Corian® solid surfaces, the material has many benefits that make it suitable for use in other locations.
For instance, its robustness makes it suitable for exterior cladding. On the other hand, the ease of cleaning makes it ideal for high-traffic sinks and soap dispensers. Lastly, its stunning visual appeal makes it a helpful addition anywhere, whether at home or in a business.
