Cleaning

As with any job, you should always clean the surface well first. Remove any dirt, loose tile or anything that may obscure the finish of your paint. Once it’s clean and sparkling, you’ll have a better surface to work with.

Masking

Before you start to paint, invest in some masking tape so you can cover edges and trims, and anywhere you don’t want to paint. Remember to cover the floor and any other surfaces you don’t want to get paint on.

Prime

Normally at this stage we’d be advising you to use a special primer that will adhere to the tiles, BUT that’s the beauty of Bedec Multi Surface Paint – it doesn’t need a primer! Bedec Multi Surface Paint can be applied directly to the cleaned tiles, its superior quality means that it easily adheres to the surface. If you want to do anything at this stage a light sand would be the most beneficial before application.

Paint

After the preparation stages you can simply paint your tiles in a colour of your choice! This multi-surface paint comes in a great range of colours, so there is plenty of choice. As well as being a decorative paint, it’s also a protective coating that resists flaking or peeling by being extra flexible.

If you already have existing paint on your tiles, it’ll bond to most other paints – even varnishes! Choose a finish that suits the environment you’re decorating. There’s satin, matt and gloss finishes. When painting, you can even get creative with stencils and paint patterns onto the tiles.

The other great reason you should paint your tiles with this paint, is that it doesn’t yellow and is easy to clean with water.

If you’ve never considered painting your tiles before – just think about how much time you can save when you don’t have to replace all of your tiles.  It’s so easy to paint over them, that you can switch up the colour whenever it takes your fancy. Time to get painting!
