Guest Blog - Diane Berry of Diane Berry Kitchens talks about why she enjoys designing with DuPont™ Corian®

We love to work with Corian® as we are very much a design-led company and it gives us the flexibility we need. So often kitchen designers restrict themselves with the limitations of slab worktops trying to keep the design within 3000mm lengths and all too often using straight lines (I aim this comment to German kitchen retailers as the English market has embraced curves to the nth degree!)

Create a Softer look with Corian®


So Corian® allows us to make the harsh Germanic kitchens have a much softer, more tactile feel, with soft flowing curves and rounded edges. We can create anything from Corian® and as long as you understand how to maintain and polish it; the surface can be easily maintained.

We recently installed Anjali Patak's kitchen (of the Patak curry fame) and she uses her kitchen for all her Indian cooking and has no problem keeping her worktops, which are bright white, stain free. So all the doom-mongers in our trade should embrace this versatile product, understand its limitations (hating pans!), as all materials have limitations, and realise all the other benefits it brings. They would then enjoy coming up with new design ideas.

Out of the comfort zone


The public need us to keep our minds open to fresh and exciting concepts so push yourself out of your comfort zone and learn to love this material. If you are unsure, borrow a slab and live with it in your kitchen and you will see how easy it is to clean.

I personally have been selling kitchen now for 32 years and have sold Corian® all this time. I have even won business by re-working the client's old Corian® worktops: changing the design of their room completely by taking the tops out, cutting them up and re-making them into the new design. Cost effective for the client and very green-friendly too. Another positive benefit for people to invest in Corian® worktops.
