Could you tell me the proper procedure for painting over tile. Are there different types of paint and preparation for inside a shower area as well as the rest of the bathroom?

Painting over tile

There are paints available at home centers for painting over tile. From the standpoint of long-term durability, it is not recommended that you paint over tile. The nonporous surface of kiln-fired ceramic tile makes a good shower wall if properly installed and maintained. A painted shower wall is not a durable option. Forum posters tend to recommend decorating around the existing colors of bathroom tiles and fixtures or replacing with the color you want.
