If you are in need of some help making the decision we are here for you. In this article, we hope to answer your question, along with giving you a better insight into preparation and painting for your bathroom project. Let’s begin by talking about if its possible or not
Is It Possible To Paint Over Tile?
Painting over bathroom tiles is possible. The process, however, can be very difficult. If you take on the task and are not experienced, you could leave your project unfinished. There are some important preparation steps to look into if you are doing this on your own and that’s what we are going to talk about next.
When preparing to paint your bathroom tile, you want to make sure your tile is clean. Remove any dirt or build-up of bacteria that may have been there over time. Using a wet sponge and cleaning chemicals is always best for this process. After that is completed you want to sand the tile down to where there is no gloss remaining. This will make it easier for the paint to stick. After the sanding process is done you want to make sure all of the leftover dust and residue is removed. After this has been completed, we can move onto the painting stage.
Now that we have taken the necessary steps to move on, we can now begin with painting. You want to find a color that you are happy with. When choosing paint, you want to choose either latex or epoxy coated paint. After you have coated the tiles with the first layer of paint, you want to repeat this a few more times. If you are the least bit worried of whether you can handle this job, finding contractors that know how to do this kind of thing is never a bad idea.
As we mentioned, contractors know what they are doing. If you have a project in progress or have one coming up we suggest seeking professional help.
