Painting wetroom tile trim?

Postby Vella63 » Thu May 14, 2020 1:07 pm

We've recently had our new wetroom tiled but we are unfortunately very much regretting our aluminium tile trim colour choice of black.
Instead of the less-than-ideal option of replacing them, we were hoping painting them could be an option, and if so, what would be the best method and product to use? Any guidance would be very much appreciated!

If it is your bathroom then here is what you need to do this,
Tile Painting Kit, Tile cleaner (use a commercial grade), Protective gear (mask gloves, etc), Tape
Now follow these below steps,
1. Clean the surfaces of the tile very good and dry them with a clean dry cloth
2. Tape off the area that you are painting
3. If using a 2 part epoxy, mix the 2 cans together with a mixing stick
4. Let it cure for 4-6 hours before applying the 2nd coat.
5. Apply the 2nd coat of epoxy
