Can You Paint Ceramic Tiles?
Is there a way to paint ceramic kitchen floor tiles rather than replace them?
Michael Dresdner: Yes, but bear in mind that the result will be a painted surface, which offers substantially less wear than the vitrified surface of ceramic tiles. Clean and degrease the tiles with mineral spirits or TSP on nylon abrasive pads, sand to de-gloss the surface, and paint. One of the few paints that will adhere to tile, if the surface is roughed, is Universal. Again, I'm happy to tell you how to do this, but I certainly do not recommend it.
