There was a time when ceramic tile kitchen countertops were all the rage. They were used extensively in kitchens and bathrooms in the 1970s and 1980s. After this period, people seemed to have lost interest in ceramic tile kitchen countertops. But in recent years, they are making a huge comeback. They have become fashionable again, and have been adapted to complement modern and contemporary interior designs. There are a number of reasons why ceramic tiles have not been completely forgotten by homeowners. Their basic qualities will ensure that they remain in vogue for a long time.
Ceramic tiles are made up of sand, natural products and clay. They are molded into desired shapes and sizes, and fired at a high temperature in a kiln before being glazed.
Ceramic tiles come in a wide variety of colors, shapes and sizes. These qualities make the countertops customizable and personalized for every taste. They can be made in the most contemporary colors and sizes as well.
Ceramic tiles are heat resistant. This makes them highly suitable for countertops. You can place hot pots and pans on them without worrying if they will get damaged.
Ceramic tiles are scratch and stain resistant. Kitchen countertops need to be made of materials that can repel scratches and stain, as food particles cause a lot of stains. Ceramic tiles fit the bill perfectly.
Ceramic tiles are cost-effective. There are a variety of other materials that can be used to make kitchen countertops. However, ceramic tiles are the most reasonably priced. At the same time, they are as durable and user friendly as costlier materials.
Ceramic tiles are easily installed. If you want to be creative, you can always install them yourself as a DIY project.
Ceramic tiles are replaceable. You do not need to get a new countertop if the tiles become damaged. This is one of the best characteristics of ceramic tiles. If a tile or two break, there is no need to remove the whole countertop. You can simply replace only those tiles that are cracked or broken.
Ceramic tiles can be repaired, resurfaced and regrouted when they get older and their surface gets worn out. A good ceramic tile servicing will make them good as new again and will last for many years.
If you are thinking of getting a new kitchen countertop, it is a good idea to choose ceramic tiles. They can provide you with both style and longevity.
