Painting tiles in enclosed shower area

7
Posted 4th Sep
I'd like to give the tiles in the bathroom shower an update as they are a horrible cream looking colour. Don't fancy ripping them off and putting new tiles on so going down the painting route.

As these tiles are in the enclosed shower and water will be directly going onto the tiles, what tile paint is best to use?

Thanks in advance.

Still a bit too much hassle mate. Planning on moving out of this house soon so just looking for it to visually look good for half a year or so.

If thats the plan then look into the special tile paint
Feel for the next resident.
Just buy some tile paint, but buy yourself a mini roller to apply the paint. It'll more than likely say use a brush on the tin but ignore it, pop to screwfix and but a tiny mini roller, job done
Just done my kitchen tiles last week black to white
FYI You can also vinyl them, if you wanted to add a black panel for example like a chess board you can order pre-cut squares from a local signage company for next to nothing or order some vinyl and cut to size yourself, just another idea that is fairly simple and will tart it up without spending vast sums or leaving the next person any additional work. good luck
