8 Strategies for Sprucing Up an Older Bathroom

What Houzz contributors are saying:

3. Paint the tiles. It won’t last as long as replacing the tile, but if you really can’t stand the color of your existing tiles, you can paint them. You’ll need a very good primer — typically oil based, not water based, according to Dana Waldecker, a professional painter in the Boston area. Even if you end up doing some of the work yourself, you should consult a professional painter to review the materials you’re planning to use and your specific wall conditions. Every project is different, and there’s no eraser when it comes to painting tile. The bathroom shown here originally featured a checkerboard of white and mint-green tiles. The homeowner applied a high-adhesion primer over the tiles, then topped it with a white satin latex paint.If you don’t want to paint all your tile, just paint accent tiles — such as the crown — in a contrasting color.
