A great choice for the bathroom.
For over 40 years, Corian® has been trusted by kitchen designers, homebuilders and consumers as a top pick for kitchen countertops. But did you know that Corian® is also one of the best materials available on the market today for use in the bathroom? And not just as a vanity countertop!
Compared to other materials that are often chosen for the bathroom, Corian® has unique attributes that make it a top choice whether you are building new or remodeling.
Can You See yourself in Corian®?
- Corian® is versatile. Not only can Corian® be used on the walls for a tub or shower surround, Corian® can also be formed into a custom shower pan that will fit any size or configuration. In installations where wheelchair accessibility or a low-rise transition is important, Corian® shower pans can be easily made to fit those specifications.
- Corian® is "seamless". When two pieces of Corian® are bonded together they form a seamless surface. In a tub or shower enclosure, this means no grout, no seams and no gaps; just a smooth, one-piece surface, which eliminates the need for waterproofing the area behind the shower walls or under the shower pan. With a Corian® seamless shower, water cannot penetrate through the solid surface, so there's never a worry about leaks.
- Corian® is hygienic. The surface of Corian® is 100% nonporous and will not promote the growth of mold or mildew, a common concern in areas where water, heat and steam are constantly present. For easy cleanability, simply squeegee your Corian® after each use to keep it looking great.
- Corian® has options. Corian® offers design flexibility like no other material available. A Corian® surround can be customized by adding seamless shampoo and soap ledges, benches for sitting and coving around windows. In addition, the properties of Corian® make it easy to create custom patterns in your tub or shower by inlaying the walls with other colors of Corian®, routing the surface with groves or shapes or texturing with relief patterns.
- Corian® is "WOW". With colors such as the 35 colors of Private Collection, Corian® seamless showers can offer unique aesthetics that resemble the random movement of natural stone but without the on-going maintenance. In addition, while high-gloss finishes are not recommended for high traffic horizontal surfaces such as kitchen countertops, Corian® shower walls are the ideal application for a high-gloss finish. Yes, you can you see yourself in Corian®!
