Ceramic tile countertops are made from individual clay-based tiles adhered over a cement-board core using thin-set mortar adhesives. For kitchen countertops, grout seams make tile a less-than-ideal countertop material, but newer ceramic and porcelain tiles are available in large sizes (1 x 2 or 2 x 2 feet) that can help minimize the number of seams and make for easier upkeep.
You can take green remodeling a step further by installing reclaimed wood counters. Barns, flooring, siding, and yes, even old wood counters, are repurposed and made into wood counters for an antique and truly unique look. Look in architectural salvage yards for raw materials. This is a questionable choice for kitchen countertops. With wood being an organic material that does not mix well with water, most homeowners envision rotting, moldy wood that needs to be replaced after a few years of use. That vision is partly true: if you don’t keep up on the constant maintenance, wood will rot quickly.
