Just discovered a paint that allows you to transform your kitchen/bathroom just by painting the wall tiles with this particular paint. Has anyone used it before? its by White Knights and its just called Tile & Laminate Paint. The laminate is for kitchen/bathroom cupboards and doors.
Thinking of doing up our kitchen and bathroom.
If so, i would love to hear your experiences.... also, before and after photos if you have any too please!!!!

Anyone tried Tile / Laminate Paint???

Yes I've used it. I painted the doors in my bathroom using it to spruce it up before selling it. You need to use the undercoat stuff first but it looked really good.
I recommend it! I was happy with the results. I've only used it on cabinets not tiles.

Yes. I've used the tile paint. Went from brown to white in the shower. Worked well but make sure you use the undercoat and I used a normal small roller. Bad mistake! All the fibers came off the roller and were obvious on the tiles. I had to lightly sand them back and redo the top coat with a foam roller. Worked great after that.

Yeh I did my kitchen cupboards - like others have said you need to be patient and do the steps properly.
- clean surface properly
- do the undercoat (i did that twice)
- do the top coat (i did that twice)
I can wipe the cupboards down with spray and wipe and they are fine.
I haven't done bathroom and am interested but I have heard some ppl say with all the moisture it tends to peel off/not take so well??
The paint is quite $$ too, but still cheaper then way to freshen up a room.

I've used the tile paint to paint our kitchen tiles from beige to white and over a lovely little 'motif' all the eay around. I don't have much to add from what everyone else has said but i also used a grout pen (made by the same company). It makes the grout look as good as new and you don't have to be worried about taping around the grout.
What I would say is make sure you're going out for the day before you do cos the pain is really strong smelling! I did it when dh was working away and had to take dd to mums for the night cos the smell was so strong.
Have fun! It's amazing how fast the transformation is and you don't have to knock out any tiles!!!

I used a similar paint...recommended by a lovely BHer.
It was an industrial strength paint suitable for laminate.
I wanted the gloss finish.
I'll go find my FB album and post links...
it was a looong process - ask for the CORRECT fibre for you roller like someone has suggested... wear the right safety gear (glasses, mask, gloves)
make sure the area is well ventilated.
I don't think it is a good idea to use it in a bathroom on the floor or where it will be wet a lot of the time though.

(be warned there is about 30 pics and some are just of tiles and paint -- but there is a definite Before and After once you get through it!)
