Saving With Tile Counters

You’ll retain the same material appearance of a slab countertop, but at a far lower cost. Tile countertops are commonly available with:
Unique edging designs are still available with tile countertops, allowing you to further customize your counters look as you would with a slab countertop.
Choosing Your Tile Size
One of the best features of tile countertops is the range of customization available, including the ability to select your tile size.
Currently, the most popular tile countertops being installed take advantage of larger tiles that make maintenance easier. (Remember, the smaller the tile the more grout there is to clean.)
Larger ceramic and porcelain tiles also allow for intricate designs to be embedded within each tile, allowing you to further customize your countertops theme and appearance.
Tile Countertop Maintenance
Tile countertops do require a bit more maintenance than a slab countertop—mainly because of the grout lines.
Because grout can be a breeding ground for mold, it’s important to wipe down your countertop to remove any excess moisture after every use. We recommend thoroughly cleaning your countertop, paying particular attention to the grout lines, at least every six months.
For this reason, tile is more traditionally used in bathroom countertops than kitchen countertops, but because of their affordable nature, tile countertops are making a resurgence in the kitchen as well.
One way to avoid having a dirty-looking grout, is to opt for a colored grout that better hides wear and heavy use. However, it’s still important to maintain your grout lines to ensure they are clean and dry.
