I am renovating a shower room in a nursing home. We are trying to make the bathroom more cozy and we wanted to paint some murals. However, we have a roughly finished tile (1"x1")that goes up the 1st 4 feet of the wall. Is there any paint product that you know of that would stick to the tile, so that we could paint a mural over some of the tile?

Thumbs up Tiling solution

Hi Chris,

Sounds like fun!

There are products now on the market that will work on tiles. There are a few brands of tile primer on the market.

Once you have primed any gloss paint will do the job or you could try specific tile paints (but the colours can be limited.

If you are looking for paler colours for the mural, once primed you can use any emulsion paint but will need to seal the coat with varnish.

Hope that helps.
