What are the most common types of tile countertops?

When it comes to tiling for countertops, the most common choices to consider are porcelain and ceramic.

  • Ceramic Tile: Also categorized as “natural stone”, ceramic tile is the least expensive tile option. This type of tile is also less likely to show wear over time in the form of chips, scratches or other types of weathering. Ceramic tile is durable and easy to clean. Add to that inexpensive and you've got a really good choice for countertops for the average home. Because it's installed a section at a time, it can be done by most resourceful homeowners.
  • Porcelain Tile: The sleek, clean style of porcelain is appealing to a wide range of households. Because it’s fired at very high temperatures, porcelain is a very durable countertop solution. Newer varieties of porcelain include advancements that allow for installation of porcelain countertops to occur similarly to solid surface countertops, without grout seams that need frequent sealing. These developments also give homeowners more access to a variety of colors and designs for their countertops.

Types of Tile Sealers
When having tile countertops installed in your home, one consideration to make is having the tiles sealed. While tile countertops don’t have to be sealed, it can be a wise investment to make for the longevity of your counters. When applied to the porous materials of tile, they create a barrier of protection from stains, oxidation or natural break down over time.

There are two types of sealers that can be used on your countertops:

  • Penetrating Sealers: These penetrate the surface of the materials of your tile to build a barrier from discoloration. These typically won’t have an effect on the color of your tile.
  • Surface Sealers: These create a coating on the surface of your tile that blocks liquids from being absorbed by porous surfaces. This type of sealer can enhance the appearance and colors of your tile and add a slight luster to its surface.

Updating Your Tile Countertops

There are several routes a homeowner can take to enhance the look of dated tiling.

  • Decorate the tiles: You can opt to work with your existing tiles by painting over them or adding decorative decals on top of the tile’s surface.
  • Refresh your kitchen’s look: Updating or painting the cabinets, drawers or other fixtures that surround your counters in order to compliment them can be a quick and easy way to revitalize your spaces.
  • Pave over your tiles: If you’re looking for a major style change, covering your countertops with concrete may be a great option for you. Use self-leveling concrete to create an entirely new counter surface that will entirely conceal the tiles underneath and leave you with a new, smooth and modern countertop.

Tile Color & Texture

Selecting the correct color tile is the first and, perhaps, the most important consideration. Color beauty is a matter of personal preference, but color can also serve other, more practical purposes. Color is only part of tile beauty. Texture adds yet another dimension.

Overall Pros & Cons

Ceramic tile countertops are:

  • made to withstand contact with very hot pots, pans and appliances
  • easy to clean
  • available in a wide range of prices, colors, textures and designs

However, the counter surface can be uneven, tiles can easily chip or crack (though they are easy to replace), grout lines can become stained, and custom-designed tiles are very expensive.

Green's Floors & More Reviews

We had a wonderful experience with Greens Flooring. Very pleasant to work with and they have a good knowledge of quality flooring and carpet. The carpet and flooring installers were very very good and also very considerate. I am so happy we bought local and would recommend Greens Flooring to anyone needing carpet and floooring.

Purchased carpet for our stairs. The total price was competitive, delivery was fast, and the installation was excellent. Highly recommended!

From the very first moment I stepped into the showroom I was met with kindness and knowledge. Martha was friendly and determined to make sure I found what I was looking for. I loaded up several sample boards to take home and set up an appointment for her husband Brad to come out and measure.

Martha and Brad were a pleasure to work with. They presented a fair price for quality materials. Their installers were professional and dependable.

Thank you
