What Are The Benefits Of Quartz Over Corian?

When it comes to choosing your kitchen worktops, it’s important that you get the most practical yet aesthetically pleasing worktop to suit you and your family. Take a look at some samples on our website, we have a wide range of worktops that you can choose from.

-Let’s discuss the benefits of Quartz over Corain.

When choosing your kitchen worktop, the two most popular materials which you can choose from are Quartz and Corain.

Firstly, let’s establish the difference between the two different materials.

  1. Quartz is a natural rock that is used to create countertops, this is the material we use in our inhouse factory here at Set In Stone.

  2. Corain is a brand name, but this is used to refer to any type of solid surface containing polymer and natural minerals. This is a lower-priced material in comparison to Quartz, this element is what attracts so many people to buy it. This is made from acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate.

We have now established the difference between the two, let’s take a closer look into the significant differences between the materials, from here you will get a better understanding for when it comes to your choosing a new kitchen worktop.

The Price: More often than not, quartz is more expensive per square foot in comparison to Corain. This is due to the quality of the product, Quartz is much more sustainable and hard-wearing in comparison.

Strength & Functionality: Here at Set In Stone, all our worktops are made from Quartz as we believe this is the most hard-wearing and high-quality material to be fitted for your kitchen worktop. Whilst Corain will last longer than laminate kitchen worktops, this is nothing in comparison to the durability of a quartz kitchen worktop.

Classic Style: When redesigning your kitchen, we understand this renovation needs to be not only practical but aesthetically pleasing whilst fitting in with the interior of your home. The Quartz worktops we provide are very modern and will not be going out of fashion anytime soon, it’s essential that you get the design element of your kitchen correct. We will supply you with testers for you and your family to get a feel to the worktop, from here you can decide which material you will be going forward with.

Durability: Whilst discussing and comparing both worktops, it’s important that you don’t base your decision on the price difference. You need to choose the most appropriate material to suit you and your lifestyle. We all know that accidents happen in the kitchen, it’s inevitable you may spill something or you may place a hot pan directly ontop the surface. You need to find the right material which can take these without damaging the brand new worktop. It’s important for you to understand that Corain contains a lot of polymer which doesn’t hold heat very well in comparison to natural stone.

The ultimate decision is down to you, we can’t tell you want the material to go for when choosing your kitchen worktop. We advise that you take into consideration these points and do your own research. It’s important that you get this correct to suit both the design of your brand new kitchen yet it must be practical and suit you and your family.
