Why You Should Consider Tiled Countertops

When renovating your kitchen, the sheer amount of choices to make can be overwhelming. Counters, cabinets, flooring, appliances are all important and it can be difficult to know how to choose the one that best fits your family, your lifestyle, and your budget. The good news it, that when done correctly, you’re left with a kitchen that perfectly suits you. Tiled countertops offer an elegance, brightness, and a way to update the look of your entire kitchen. Extremely durable, this heat resistant material can make a great option for the budget-conscious family, as it can be installed for as little as $10 per square foot.

A Look That Lasts

One major benefit to tiled countertops is the massive variety offered to you. You are not limited to one set of colors or patterns or even one variety of tile. Mix and match ceramic and porcelain tiles to suit your needs, choose different colors and patterns across your kitchen to bring a smile to your face every time you enter, and make your tile choice complement the specific decor of the rest of your kitchen.

If you plan to do a lot of cooking, porcelain tiles can be a great choice as they are less porous and harder than ceramic tiles. Use ceramic tiles to create an eye-catching backsplash that is highly heat resistant.

Professionals who install your tiles seal them in such a way to protect your countertops from stain damage. Because of these benefits, installing tiles is often seen as an investment into a valued asset. Their high durability and inexpensive cost make them a great choice. Tiled countertops are also appreciated for their high sheen that last for many years, saving you money and keeping the look of the kitchen top notch.

Daily Convenience 

From a day to day use perspective, cleaning your tiled countertops is quick and simple. Don’t worry about purchasing specialized cleaners and enjoy the easy wipe-down and maintenance of this durable material.

The surface of these tiles also makes for easy cooking, as they offer strong resistance against the heat let off from pots and pans. Feel comfortable setting your hot pans right on the surface without worrying about grabbing a potholder, because the heat won’t damage your tile.

Should one of your tiles crack or break, don’t stress! The individual tile can be swapped out with a new one, making it a quick and easy repair. There’s no need to replace all the tiles, and you’ll be back to a smooth and crack-free surface in no time.

This Year’s Popular Designs

For those looking for a unique look and an updated design, tile gives you the chance to be creative. Working with an installer allows you to create a mosaic or pattern of your choice, giving your kitchen a one-of-a-kind look and style savvy.

This year, many homeowners drawn to the popularity of granite can enjoy granite tiles as a cost-effective alternative to one thick slab of granite.

Another popular look recently has been a French inspired design through the use of a six-inch square in one color with an accented trim.

Whatever design or use you’re looking for, tiled countertops can work with you and your budget. Enjoy the lasting durability, high sheen, and creative styling available through this product choice.
