Heavy metal kitchen
Sparkle, shimmer and shine are making their way back into décor, even — or maybe especially – in the kitchen and bath. So it’s good timing for Corian to come out with 10 new colors, including eight metallics that are infused with gold or silver. There’s also a new Designer White, and a caramel-toned Cottage Lane. I’ll be looking more closely at the new colours, and at the properties of Corian in general for an upcoming column on counter-top options. One of the questions I’ve been asking is how hygienic various materials are. Press material for Corian states that, with proper cleaning, it does not promote the growth of mold, mildew or bacteria and is non-toxic and non-allergenic to humans. More on all that later — for now feast your eyes on these pretty, jewel-like shades. Have you redone a kitchen counter-top lately? If so, what did you go for?
