5 Unique Applications of Corian Solid Surface

5 Unique Applications of Corian® Solid Surface

Corian®’s adaptability is perfect for showers, bar tops, boats, and exterior wall cladding. Below are some of the most unique applications to help inspire you.

Shower Surfaces

Kitchen Choreography is an interior design and remodel company in northern Michigan. They aim to provide clients with unparalleled service from start to finish.

For one particular residential project, the homeowners decided they wanted a full remodel of their bathroom that incorporated a crisp, clean, and modern look.

One unique challenge included incorporating a wainscot paneling in the shower. Typically, this type of application uses either wood or veneer for the wall covering. With this particular placement, the right material needed to keep the shower clean, clear of mold and residue, and durable for many years. This material also needed to have the right texture and look in order to match the homeowner’s vision.

Kitchen Choreography completed the shower renovation with Corian® Solid Surface. The shower walls are comprised of field tile and b-board in Cameo White. Light hues of white, cream, and gray help to accent the shower and give this bathroom the much-desired look.

Interior Vertical Walls

For another unique application, we’re spotlighting the artist Mario Romano, creator of M.R. Walls. Unlike tile or print, Corian® allows any vertical space to have a unique and uninterrupted design. The material  is resistant to mold, virus, and bacteria. And it’s completely waterproof!

You can choose from one of Mario’s creations inspired by nature or create a pattern together. This is perfect for shower walls in either a commercial or residential space, kitchen backsplashes, or a statement wall. M.R. Walls has some incredible applications that will leave you awestruck.  


Corian® can truly help to enhance any type of space. For example, in this residence, the huge living room wasn’t appropriately accommodating the needs of the area. The homeowners wanted to create a dual-use for the space: one area for watching tv and the other to sit in front of the fireplace and talk.

By incorporating the original design of the home (step detail in a piano-shaped curve), Mark Gacesa of Ultraspace transformed the space with Corian® Solid Surface in Witch Hazel. He actually framed the couch with it!

During the day, this material complements the existing furniture in the room. By night, the entire room glows to create a magical and soothing spot. In this application, the Solid Surface is both backlit and underlit to allow for auto dimming. 

University & Retail Spaces

We mentioned earlier that DuPont will color match any color, and that’s exactly what happened with the University of Michigan.

The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor has a tradition of excellence in all they do. They wanted to complete one of their newly renovated spaces by building durable, custom trophy cases.

In order to complete the desired look, they chose Corian® Solid Surface in their famed maize and blue. These trophy cases are durable, easy-to-clean, and provide a seamless look. They also help to add a distinctive element for the University of Michigan.

Exterior Spaces

Ellard Custom Countertops is a small business located in Paw Paw, Michigan that specializes in fabricating Corian® Solid Surface.

One residential project they worked on was an outdoor porch. The homeowners didn’t like the current look of the lattice under their porch. They wanted a material that would blend well into the natural surroundings and keep woodland critters away. 

The homeowners wanted to use a material that was durable enough to withstand the harsh outdoor elements and wouldn’t need to be replaced.

The fabricator completed the project with Corian® Solid Surface in Deep Nocturne. They also placed a piece behind the step to ensure the space was completely blocked off from any critters looking to call that space home. The color Deep Nocturne was chosen as it blended well with the mulch and surrounding greenery and helped to create a cohesive look.
