Using tile paint on a bathroom floor

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.

Re: Using tile paint on a bathroom floor

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.

Re: Using tile paint on a bathroom floor

Hi! I had the same question about painting the tiles in my bathroom floor. Based on everyone’s responses, I will stay clear from painting but wanted to know more about your suggestion: wood look vinyl planks. Do you have any pictures or know of anyone that has done it. Can they be cut around corners of the bathroom.

Welcome to the Workshop community @Patriciasmg.

 

We stock a great variety of vinyl planks which are easy to install and look fantastic. Here's a step-by-step D.I.Y. tutorial on How To Lay Vinyl Plank Flooring which you might find of assistance as it shows what they look like when laid. 

 

I trust you'll get loads of inspiration from our creative members for around your home and garden. If you ever need assistance or have something to share please let us know.
