How to care for your Corian worktops

corian-worktops

So you’ve had your new kitchen installed along with brand new Corian worktops and a Corian kitchen sink.

Corian is extremely versatile, made of acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate. Once installed, your Corian worktop and sink will have a satin sheen finish.However, as it is used over time, Corian will acquire a smoother, more silken finish.

Corian requires minimal maintenance however; you can help maintain its beauty by following our handy guide on how to care for your Corian worktops below:

Cleaning your Corian

It is advised to wipe up any spills on your Corian worktop as soon as they occur using a microfibre cloth and standard ammonia based hard surface cleaner. If a stain requires further attention, sprinkle a gentle abrasive powder on the damp surface and leave it for 3-4 minutes before using a soft cloth and rubbing it in a circular motion.

Important Corian advice for worktops

  • Use a heat protection pad or incorporate hob-bars in your kitchen design for hot cookware.
  • Use the correct size pan for the burner you have. Overhanging pans can scorch surrounding surfaces.
  • Using a butcher’s block or chopping board is recommended when chopping food.
  • Use soapy water to flush out any strong chemical spills – this will help prevent damage. Use a non-acetone based remover for nail varnish spills.

Cleaning your Corian sink

Prepare your sink by removing all fat and oil residues of food from the sink using a standard hard surface cleaner. Use a spray made up of ¾ household bleach and ¼ water to spray into the sink – leave over night (exposure time should be limited to 16hrs). Rinse the sink and clean with a damp cloth.

Important Corian advice for sinks

  • Add a few inches of cold water in the sink before directly adding a hot pan into it.
  • Avoid pouring boiling liquids directly into sinks without turning on the cold-water tap as well.
  • Use soapy water to flush out any strong chemical spills – this will help prevent damage. Use a non-acetone based remover for nail varnish spills.

Corian is the ideal material for kitchen worktops because it is a solid surface, it is easy to clean and is not affected by chemical cleaners. Also, the beauty of Corian is that after years of use – yours worktop and sink will still look great.

The Kitchen Design Centre Barrowford is a stunning showroom that occupies three shops on the high street - 4, 5, and 6 Gladstone Terrace.

Mr and Mrs Lowcock recently visited the showroom when they were considering a new kitchen for their busy family home. Mr Lowcock has fond memories of visiting his father’s plumbing shop in 4 Gladstone Terrace, which made the visit quite nostalgic!
The couple chose a Hacker Ravenna Pearl Grey kitchen with bespoke Artista Grey Corian worktops. The main focus of the design was to brighten up the space by using better lighting and natural colors. The addition of practical appliances, including a Quooker boiling tap, made it easy for the multi-generational family to use the kitchen.
