How to Paint Your Bathroom Tile

Prev1 of 2Next

The DIY industry has become so robust that there is almost nothing you can’t fix up or restore.  Replacing old outdated tile used to be the only way to change the look in your bathroom, or give your tub a face-lift   This is a really great Band-Aid or an inexpensive temporary (or even semi-permanent) fix.  This technique would be perfect if you plan to re-do your bathroom at some point, but don’t have the money or time now and you want to make it tolerable until then.  Paint your tile.  Best idea ever.How to Paint Your Bathroom Tile (1)

If you are up for the task, you can makeover any bathroom, even with a small budget!

When I start a project, I always ask myself “what is the worst that could happen?”  I usually do said project if worst case scenario doesn’t result in death or dismemberment, but other people may have a different “worst case” set point.  For all of you “risk managers” out there, I outlined the pros and cons to help in your decision 🙂

Pros

  • Extend the life of your tile
  • Update the look
  • Inexpensive
  • Get the color you want

Cons

  • Your grout will also be painted (no contrast)
  • Extensive cleaning in prep work
  • Paint can peel over time

    This is really helpful. I have pink tile in my kitchen that I would like to cover. I have heard of the Rustoleum Tile transformations, but this is a bit cheaper.

    This is great! I am going to try this; my pink bathroom tile is causing issues for me. I will be moving in my home and the bathroom is a pink nightmare.

    I used NuGrout Colorant to color the grout in my kitchen. My floor looks fantastic! The best part is I saved a bunch of money since I didn’t have to re-grout the tiles. My wife LOVES the outcome! You can find out more about these products at http://www.nugrout.com.

    I did this 10 yrs ago with oil based outdoor paint in my bathroom, the only places that started to peel was in the showers soap dish I didn’t clean it well enough enoughbefore painting, but other wise it lasted quite a few years. It was worth it to freshen up very old bathroom on a budget.
