    I am hoping I can avoid retiling a whole bathroom.

    Is there a way I can successfully paint over existing bathroom tiles to make things look more modern or am I wasting my time?

    I did try this once before somewhere else years ago and after a few months the special paint started peeling.

    Am I missing a trick or two?

    Save your money by not buying the paint, leave it till you have time to retile properly.

    We EMULSIONED over some tiles several times a while back - but only because the wife couldn't decide what colour to go for! :(

    Once I found a colour she was happy with the whole lot got ripped out and re-tiled.

    At least it was easier than going through six lots of tiles :)
