Countertops can improve the appearance and function of home interiors. As you prepare for a kitchen remodeling project, you might wonder which material to choose for your counters. Ceramic tile can provide several practical and aesthetic advantages for the space. The following guide highlights some benefits of selecting tile countertops for your kitchen. 

Why Should You Install Ceramic Tile Counters?

1. Durability

Tile can withstand high temperatures, making it unlikely to burn, crack, or melt when exposed to hot pots and pans. With a protective sealant, this material is practically waterproof, making it more resistant to mildew growth and staining. Additionally, glazed tile may resist scratches caused by chopping foods or sliding cookware across the surface. Its resistance to damage can keep a countertop attractive and minimize the need for repairs.

2. Versatility

Ceramic tile is available in many colors, shapes, and sizes, and it can easily match other kitchen features, such as backsplashes and floors. You might opt for white tiles to give your space a clean and modern look, or you may want to make a dramatic statement by choosing them in darker blues, greens, or grays. Alternatively, you use tiles in different sizes to create attractive mosaics or select them in floral or geometric patterns.

3. Low Maintenance

Tile and grout are porous, meaning they contain small openings where bacteria may enter. You can prevent microbes from accumulating and reproducing by wiping your counters with an antibacterial cleaning solution and gentle cloth after cooking in your kitchen. 

Deep cleaning the grout a few times annually can make it more resistant to stains and bacteria. Combine baking soda with water to create a paste and add a dash of vinegar and liquid dish soap to the mixture. Use the paste and a small brush to scrub the grout, then rinse the surface with hot water before drying it with a clean towel. It's also best to reseal the grout with a commercial sealing product annually to protect it.
