Tile countertops are a popular choice for people who are seeking a versatile and budget-friendly surface. Tile countertops are easy to maintain and clean. The surface is heat- and stain-resistant, and they're available in a wealth of colors, materials, sizes and patterns.
Coordinate tile choices with your kitchen design by choosing a matching color style or pattern that pairs well with your overall theme. Kitchen counter tiles are available in a variety of materials, including ceramic, slate and granite. Use one consistent color and pattern throughout your design or consider mixing up patterns with solid tiles to create a checkerboard design.
You might also want to consider incorporating a few of your countertop tiles into the design of your backsplash in order to help the two areas mesh well. For example, a countertop that has been tiled white with a mix of patterned tiles might blend well with a backsplash that mixes in tiles made from the same pattern choice.
Tile countertops are easy to maintain and clean. Simply wipe down countertops with a mild soap and soft cloth. Consider keeping a few extra tiles on hand in case one chips and needs to be replaced.
For a budget-conscious kitchen countertop, consider painting over your current surface for a fresh, cost-efficient option.
