Installing ceramic tile countertop includes steps such as preparing the counter surface, laying out the tiles, applying adhesives, embedding the tiles, setting the edge tile, setting and spacing tiles, setting perimeter tiles, and applying sealer and grout. Ceramic tile countertops are generally set on mortar bed or cement backer board with thin set mortar. For best results, the field tile, the trim, and accents must be carefully selected. As they are easy to clean, it is always advisable to use cement grouts and epoxy grouts. Finishes such as glazed, porcelain, quarry, and mosaic can be applied to add to the charm of ceramic tile countertops. Ceramic tile countertops have certain downsides too. Since the grout between the tiles is light color and can harbor germs, they require constant maintenance and cleaning. Ceramic tiles are prone to break, and they cannot be easily repaired.
