There are ceramic tiles in the foyer and hall and the owner doesn't want to pay to replace them. The realtor wants to know if the tiles can be painted. How and with what? I would appreciate any help on this problem.
You can have just about any surface painted. But will it hold up under traffic? No.
We had our hall ceramic bath floor and wall tile painted many years ago. Wall is fine, floor has had some dings, chips and peels. I have to keep washable throw rugs down to protect from any shoe grit.
A foyer and hall? No way would that hold up very long, unless you covered all pathways with runners. Cost is not cheap either, plus the smell of the epoxy solvent paint.
And because it would then be a painted surface, only non acidic, mild cleaners can be used.
I understand an owner not wanting to pay the bill, but if everything else is good with the home, any home buyer should consider replacement with new flooring, if they choose.
Would that garage floor paint that comes with the flecks be ok, do you think?
Cm, it is meant to go on concrete which is porous instead of tile which generally is not. It would need to be researched but my first reaction would be, no.
