I haven't painted tiles before but have laid plenty. You'll get away with painting wall tiles but I don't suggest painting floor tiles - they'll wear and scratch too easily.

Re: Painting bathroom tiles

I dont recommend it as the paint is only cosmetic and not made for rough use and walking on. I suggest lino if the budget is tight, there are some heavy duty ones that look good. Use ardit floor leveler over your old tiles to give it that flat look and lay the lino over it when its dry. A cheap alternative but done right you could get away with it. Done wrong and youll be going to kennards to hire a pneumatic hammer to chisel out you floor. Good luck!

I believe this is the most commonly used product for painting tiles - https://www.bunnings.com.au/white-knight-1l-white-tile-paint_p1560500

 

Let us know how you go with it.
