Repainting bathroom shower tiles

Hello, I'm looking to give my bathroom a makeover and was wanting to avoid redoing the tiling. I have found some products like the Dulux Rejuvenation range of paints that can be used to repaint wall and floor tiles, but have not been able to find a product that can be used on the floor tiles in the shower recess. Are there any products out there or am I looking for a unicorn? Thanks Karen

Re: Repainting bathroom shower tiles

Hello @KarenP2 

 

Welcome to Bunnings Workshop. I've gone to the Dulux website in reference to this particular issue and they do not support the painting of the shower floor at this point in time. They are currently testing the product to see if it can withstand total water immersion for long periods of time. Perhaps when their results come out we will have a better idea if it is good to use in the shower recess. But outside the shower everything else is ok to be painted. I've attached a copy of the Dulux info page at the bottom specifically number line 47 and number 48 referring to the shower base and tile base. Let me mention @MitchellMc perhaps he will have other recommendations for your shower area.

 

Cheers,

Red

Re: Repainting Bathroom Shower Tiles

Hi @KarenP2,

 

It's great to see you've already received a helpful response from @redracer01. I am not aware of any paint recommended for use on floor tiles in a shower recess. 

 

You might like to post some bathroom images, and our helpful members could have some alternative solutions to painting the tiles. Depending on the situation, you might look at installing a shower base.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Mitchell
