1. They’re easy to clean

Do you feel like you spend half your life cleaning your kitchen? Are you frustrated by having to spend a lot of money on cleaning products – only to find that they’re full of harsh chemicals that you don’t want around your family?

Plus, there are tons of natural DIY cleaning solutions you can use to clean your tiles.

Because tiles are so easy to clean, you don’t have to worry about stains, discolouration and fading.

2. They can handle high temperatures

Another awesome benefit of tile countertops?

They can withstand high temperatures without cracking, discolouring or leaving marks when you place a pot straight from the oven on them.

This is a huge bonus for those who can’t get enough of cooking at home. Leave the cooling racks in your drawers and instead place pots, pans, baking sheets and more directly on your worktops.

You can also ask about temperature-resistant options when you’re choosing your specific type of tile.

3. The installation process is fast
