Forget ripping off the tiles in your bathroom – this trick will refresh your old tiles and make them look amazing again.

Did you know you can paint your tiles? Here’s how to do it easily and for a fraction of the price of removal.

Tools needed:

  • Gloves
  • Paint brush
  • Sanding block
  • Paint roller kit
  • Safety goggles
  • Tile paint
  • Masking tape
  • Tile primer

Step 1. Clean and sand

Start by giving your tiles a good clean with a tile-cleaning product. Once the surface is dry, give the tiles a light sand to score the surface. This will help take the glaze off the surface of the tiles and help the paint to bond better to the surface. Once the surface is sanded, wipe away the dust.

Step 2. Mask 

Mask off the edges and any power points with tape. When the masking is done, give the tiles another quick wipe with a rag to clear off all the dust.

Step 3. Prime the tiles

Grab your paintbrush and a roller to apply the tile primer. When the primer has dried, and had time to cure (should be on the tin), give it a very light sand.

Step 4. Paint the tiles with tile paint

Stir your paint thoroughly. Starting in the top corner, work your brush down the tiles to create a wet edge. Then work your way across the wall, maintaining that wet edge as you go.

Step 5. Let it dry and admire your handiwork!
