Whether you want the look of natural stone or you marvel the sheen of manmade materials, tile countertops provide you with both options. As the name suggests, tile countertops are actually made from smaller square tiles of various materials, and not large continuous slabs. Tile countertops are comparatively much cheaper, but can give you the exquisite look of natural stone as they are made of the same material. The only difference is that they are in the form of tiles.
Granite is a natural stone and can bring the vibrancy and energy of nature into your kitchen when carefully carved into countertops. Granite is found in various shades of natural colors that range from white to reds, browns, blues, greens and black. These colors make granite countertops blend with no effort with the rest of your wooden kitchen cabinetry and decor.
