I know you can re-enamel a bathtub, and believe you can do the same with tile. As part of a bathroom overhaul, I want to change the color of our wall tiles. They are smooth and about 4" square, and in excellent shape, just a bad color.

I'd like to get it done professionally, but do you have any info on how durable it is or any other pros and cons? Can they mix any color you want or is it limited to white?

I appreciate any knowledge you have on the subject. Thanks,
vanOs

They can make any color you want. I've seen good jobs, and not so good jobs. I would not recommend it for a shower area.

Why wouldn't you recommend it for a shower area? Would cleaning it damage the surface or something?

The products used are paint. No one actually re-enamels anything. I don't think the paint will hold up in the shower. It usually peels from the grout joints after a while. I'm sure there are plenty of people who will argue the point. It's just my opinion.
