The clear advantage of ceramic bathroom tile countertops is cost. Ceramic tiles are among the most economical home design features, at a fraction of the cost of alternatives like granite, manufactured quartz, marble or even solid-surface countertops. Additionally, the myriad style options available for ceramic tile countertops mean that you shouldn't have any trouble matching your existing bathroom design with the appropriate tiles.

In terms of maintenance, ceramic tile bathroom countertops may require a bit more elbow grease than more low-maintenance options without seams or grout. However, if you keep the tile countertop surface area relatively small, this shouldn't be too much of an issue.
