Re: Using tile paint on a bathroom floor

@kim00 An alternative that will save $$$ and is easy to DIY, is to use wood look vinyl planks on the bathroom floor (not suitable in the shower area - you can leave your existing tiles or replace tiles with a shower tray). Vinyl planks are super trendy right now too.

Thanks but no wouldn't use the vinyl planks was looking for only a tempory measure & a cheap way out. Thought tile paint would be the go. But will just have to save for the tiles.

Hi Kim00,
Just to reassure you that you are making the right decision, no the tile paint will not hold up under trafficked loads. You will find it will only last until the first person walks in with some dirt or a stone lodged in their shoe, then it will scrape right off. Same as the wall tiles, if you were to take say a flat head screw driver, you would be able to quite easily scrape it off. Suitable for walls with no load but not for trafficked areas.

You'll thanks yourself in the long run.
