I will upload the photographs from before and after, but painting the kitchen tiles in white gloss tile paint was definitely a stroke of genius. A friend a few years back had mentioned painting tiles rather than replacing them which was the first I had heard of doing it. When I was thinking about tarting up the house ready for sale, I knew I had to do something about the tiles in the kitchen as they looked old. tired and dull.
One tin costs 19 pounds, but covers 6 square metres, and I opted for a one coat rather than paint primer then topcoat which was slightly more expensive paint but took less time to do the job.
The only problem I had with the paint was the smell, not unpleasant but you do want to work in a well ventilated space if you suffer from asthma or other chest complaints. I admit to doing the kitchen in three parts as I limited my exposure to the paint and also meant I could finish other jobs as well.
I am actually beginning to like the DIY aspects of this tarting up process and hope that I will get a chance to utlise my skills no matter where I end up as I have enjoyed the challenge of doing things that before were Dad's domain though I think my gloss work on the doors meet anything he had done before.
