How To Change The Colour Of Bathroom Floor Tiles
My bathroom has Pepto-Bismol pink ceramic tile (ahhhhh!) for flooring and for the shower wall. There are many DIY sires with advice on how to sand, primer, and paint as a cost effective way to change the color. Has anyone done this in the bathroom successfully?

There is no doubt that when you want to change the tile grout color, you will have to work very hard for it. However, the end result will be highly fulfilling. You can maintain this new look of the tile flooring for a long time if you use a good quality dust mop to sweep the floors.
