New Tile Kitchen Countertops

Tile kitchen countertops – One of the least expensive and most decorative ways to create a countertop in your home is the use of tiles. Many types of tiles can be used successfully on a countertop, whether the design is modern or traditional style. While some tiles should be avoided, such as soft stones such as limestone or marble. Almost every type of tile can be used to create a decorative and functional counter in a kitchen or bathroom.

If the appearance of a kitchen granite is something you want, but the cost makes it prohibitive, consider using granite tiles. Granite tiles are made from the same material used in large slabs, but cut to 12-inch squares that are 3/8 inches thick. Granite tiles are installed on a plywood back, with a thin grout joint between them.

Have a finished edge put on the front tiles. So the front piece of granite rounds and over the edge on a rounded edge to complete the design. Ceramic tiles of almost all colors and sizes can be used at the counters. Since ceramic tiles have a glaze that is available in many finishes and shades. Try using two colors to create a nice design. Use a tile color from the top, or counter workspace. Then, use a second, coordinating colored tiles to the edge. Use one, large “V” mosaic of the edges of the countertops, instead of using a smaller rounded tile.
