    I may get new kitchen counters and the fabricator charges,for Corian, about what a basic stainless steel sink costs. Is it easier just to have them do it all in Corian? Any strong feelings about the stuff for counters/sinks?
    Thanks in advance.

    I have never been a fan of corian. #1, it is a low to satin gloss, and I don't care for that on sink or countertop. I have found that white corian sinks especially always looked grungy. Of course, you can clean and buff it up with a greenie, but I just didn't like it. Some folks love it.

    Cast iron and very good quality SS are my choices.

    My experience has been that granite and corian are priced about the same ... the perceived value and aesthetics is much greater for the granite IMO.

    I went with granite and actually paid a tad more

    than the Corian.Hard to tell with all the changes and stuff but the Boss is pleased and that is all that matters.I will start a new thread with a new question shortly.Thanks for your feedback.

    PS-- I leaned towards granite when a realtor,with absolutely no ax to grind in the matter,told me that it always gets more in terms of resale.
