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.
Prices can vary according to tile type. Natural stone tiles made from granite or slate may sell for two dollars per square foot. Glazed ceramic tiles run from a dollar to twenty dollars per square foot, while unglazed quarry tiles may average around $2 per square foot. An important thing to remember is to use ceramic tiles with a slightly rough textured surface when tiling the bathroom. This is so you won't encounter accidents on a floor that's always wet. Smooth glazed ceramic tiles, especially, are ideal for kitchen or back porch flooring. But you shouldn't use them bathroom floors, as they can be treacherous when wet.
