Consider tile kitchen countertops as an option for your next remodel.

Do-it-yourselfers and budget-conscious consumers alike wax poetic about the high-quality beauty and bang-for-your-buck cost of installing tile countertops in the kitchen.

Thinner, natural stone tiles offer similar aesthetics and durability—but for a fraction of the cost, when compared to a solid granite or marble slab. And, in the case of granite tile countertops, grout lines may be practically invisible thanks to the material's straight edges. (And, in general, using larger tiles equates to fewer grout lines and larger squares to work on.)

Ceramic tile countertops offer similar benefits, though the man-made material makes it easy (and fun) to get creative with color and pattern. Think mosaics, mismatched, recycled or hand-painted tiles that are versatile enough to go from the counter to the backsplash—or even an entire wall.

One caveat: the smaller the tile, the more grout lines you'll see, which can equate to more cleaning for you.
