Quartz vs. Corian

October 14, 2011

I am trying to decide between the practicality of Zodiaq and Corian (both DuPont products)for my new kitchen

I have 3 small boys, ages 5,6 and 7 who will be at the counter every day and my fear is that they will destroy the Zodiaq with the Sharpie I did not know was in the house, the matchbox car with the jagged edge or the heavy object that gets slammed on a corner. Unintented damage is just a fact of life around here.

My previous home came with Glacier White Corian and I recall it being very easy to clean them. Every stain came out with a little soft scrub. That said, I did not have children then. I have a large sample piece of Glacier White on my counter now and the kids handprints are really visible. I know they come out but how often do you want to have to clean the counter just for smudges.

The price is not the issue and granite is not an option because I want white. So, for practicality, Zodiaq Cloud White of Corian Glacier White?
