How to Make a Corian Shower Floor Non Slippery

Corian shower floors look very rich and elegant and can be made without any seams, which is perfect for the shower floor. Solid-surface materials like Corian are non-porous and will not support the growth of bacteria, which is another ideal aspect for the shower floor. But you want to make sure your Corian shower floor is not slippery. If your Corian floor does not have a non-slip surface, there are ways you can make this surface safer and slip-resistant.

Clean the shower floor using a sponge or soft cloth and a non-abrasive cleaner, like ammonia, and warm water to remove any dirt and shower scum. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

Dry the Corian surface thoroughly by letting it air dry for several hours or blowing a fan towards it for at least 30 minutes or until no water is visible.

Apply non-stick strips made for the shower (found at home centres, hardware or bath shops) every few inches throughout the shower floor or, alternatively, place a suction-cup-backed mat on the shower floor.

Sand the Corian surface, as a variation to using the non-stick strips or mat, by taking 80 grit sandpaper and sanding in circular motions until you have a slightly rough surface. Use this variation only if you have a light-coloured Corian material since the darker colours will produce a hazy white colour once they are sanded and may give an undesirable appearance.
