A while back we redid our kitchen and looked at all the options. Chose Corian instead of granite. Very happy with it. As others said, the appeal of being able to repair was a deal closer. Has more of a matte finish though. So if you're looking for that shiny wet look, you may be disappointed as was a neighbor of mine when they installed Corian. I was confused on her reaction as she had seen the corian countertops in the showroom, so the final look should have been no surprise. IIRC, it was a little cheaper than granite by a few bucks. Also was disappointed that you have to be a certified installer to put them in. I'm pretty handy and after watching the "certified" guy do it, all I can say is: "it ain't rocket science". :shock: Just a scam on the mfr and retailers part to employ people, IMO.

You can polish corian out to a glossier finish if your up to it. Assuming it is in a reasonable condition now you could wet sand it with fine sandpaper starting with 1000 grit and finish with 2000 grit. Then with rubbing compound polish the surface to a gloss. On open areas a auto buffer would save a lot of work.
