How To Paint Bathroom Tiles


I’m Ash, and I’ll be showing you how to
paint wall tiles. If your tiles are outdated and drab,
here’s a way to modernize them and make them look fab. ♪ [music] ♪ If your tiles are in a good condition,
you don’t need to replace it, you can just paint them for
a fresh and new look. For this project, you’ll need a paint
tray, paint roller, masking tape, a primer, tile paint, a mould killer,
sugar soap, sanding paper, sanding block scrubbing brushes,
clean cloths, dust mask, gloves, paint brush, and a paint mixer. The first thing you need to do is give
your tiles a really good clean. Use a bucket, some water and some sugar
soap and scrub the tiles. You can also use sugar soap
wipes if you like. Take a toothbrush to clean
your grout lines. If you have mould in your grout lines,
make sure you use a mould killer to kill all the mould spores. Give your tiles a quick dry before you
start to sand. Now that the tiles are clean,
give it a light sand so that the primer sticks well to the wall. Put your dust mask on so that you don’t
breathe in any of the tile dust. I have sanded the tiles,
and now I’m just going to rinse off all the dust. I have scrubbed, I have sanded,
and I’ve rinsed the tiles, but I’m going to repeat the process,
because we want these tiles to be squeaky clean before we start to prime. I’m going to tape the areas that I don’t
want the paint to go in, like the bench top and the windowsill. I have cleaned and I’ve taped off,
and now it’s time to prime. I’m going to use the Dulux Renovation
Range primer. Add this additive to the primer,
and stir it for two to five minutes. It says it is a plastic laminate primer,
but it is a universal one, and it can be used on all tiles. Use your paintbrush to cut in around the
edges and along the grout line. I have let the primer dry for four hours,
and now it’s time to apply my top coat. Add your additive to the paint and stir
for two to five minutes. You can tint your paint any color from the
Dulux Range. I’m going with Whisper White. Use your paintbrush to cut along the edges
and along the grout lines. Use your roller to go over the area with
long even strokes. The bathroom already looks better. I’m going to let the first coat dry for
eight hours, and then apply the second coat. My bathroom was old and dated,
but now it’s modern and fresh, ready for me to style. I’ll just add a mirror and some styling
items, and this bathroom is going to look incredible. ♪ [music] ♪
