    Painting tiled flooring

    Painters & Decorators

    Hello, I'm wondering if I can paint my floor tiles, I havent got the money to remove them and install new tiles but is there any tile paint I could buy? How should I paint the actual floor tiles? Thanks

    "Hi. Whereas there are practical solutions to some work undertaken, the painting of tiles is one of them. One can get further advice on YouTube and the purchasing of good quality paint for floor tiles for the desired look. You can in some circumstances place new tiles over old existing tiles. You may have to seek professional help but this can also be achieved by following the instructions given online and if you are not sure or confident in doing it yourself do seek professional help it may cost you less in the long run.

    "Yes you can. Slightly rub down the floor tile area you want to paint and then use zinsser (yellow or red tint, but yellow is preferable. Just not the blue as it's not suitable for the tiles). Let it fully cure and then apply the floor paint."

    "You can buy an oil based tile paint from all local DIY stores or paint stores, I recommend oil based if there will be a lot of foot traffic. Then just paint it on as you would paint a wall"

    "Stone tiles can be painted in red tile paint readily available (Wilkinson's) it my need priming first.
    Make sure the floor is perfectly clean or paint won't stick. Wipe over with turps or meths and allow to dry,

    "The only answer I can give is for you to go on Line at the Zinsser paints website. They are specialists in supplying paint for different surfaces.

    I don’t think they are open at the moment.

    "You might be better of laying cushion floor. Floor paint may scrape off due to heavy footwear unless you buy specialist paint. Cushion floor may be cheaper."
