Painting wall tiles
You want a new coat of paint for your wall tiles? No problem! We have put together everything you need to know to make your project perfect. Just start painting!
If you are planning to paint your tiles, you can use any colour shade from our online shop. Depending on the supplier, the price per can/litre ranges from 39 - 56€. It's best to choose a colour you like first, for example a tile colour in grey. Then you can look at the respective price and buy the right product for your project.
It doesn't matter whether you want to apply the tile paint on the floor, on the wall, in the kitchen or in the bathroom. You can use the varnish from a bucket for:
- Bathroom tiles
- Kitchen tiles
- Floor tiles
- Wall tiles
In addition to tile paint, our hard-wearing and washable wall paint is also ideal for heavily used walls with plaster or wallpaper surfaces.
With our varnishesn you can paint your tiles really easily. Conventional tile paint is usually complicated to apply because it is mixed from two components and has to be applied quickly. It is also a nuisance to the nose and often the nasty smell lingers for a long time.
Our tile paints are ready to use, practically odourless and you can apply them without much previous experience. They are easy to apply to tiles and joints. Due to the slightly thicker consistency, there are hardly any colour noses and you get an even result. In addition, you can apply the second coat after only 4 - 6 hours.
The varnishes from our online shop also impress with their high covering power. It doesn't matter whether the substrate is light or dark - after 2-3 coats there is nothing left to see.
The finish of our silk-matt varnishes looks noble, they are robust and easy to clean. After just a few hours of drying, you can carefully walk on the surface again.
When do I use tile paint?
Whenever you get tired of your old tiles, our tile varnish is the remedy! Whether tile paint for floors, tile paint for kitchens, wall tiles or floor tiles, you can paint over almost all surfaces with our paints. Our paints have a very good adhesion to tile surfaces. If this is still not enough, for example on the floor, you can apply a primer. It should always be used on floor tiles in particular! But also on smooth or stressed wall tiles, such as in the shower or on the backsplash in the kitchen, the primer To Bond - MissPompadour Stainblock provides additional stability.
Choose the right colour for your tiles
Finding the right colour is often not easy, we are well aware of that. That's why we make it different, and simple! In the table below you will find a list of all tile colours that are suitable for your projects. Additional special colours are not necessary and the covering power is convincing by itself.
Which colours are available as tile varnish?
You can choose from hundreds of great colour shades. Every manufacturer represented in the shop offers colour shades in a strong lacquer quality suitable for tiles. The most suitable are MissPompadour Eggshell Varnish, Mylands Wood & Metal Eg gshell Varnish and Painting the Past Eggshell Varnish.
Can I paint tiles with chalk paint?
Chalk paints are wonderful for painting your tiles, just like the other strong paint qualities. Painting the Past colours are based on chalk flour. Mylands uses marble powder instead. And the MissPompadour Paints may not be chalk paints, but they rely on a sustainable organic raw material. All three are equally suitable. The varnishes are robust and easy to clean, which makes them ideal for tiles.

Especially when it comes to painting tiles, many questions arise. We have therefore compiled some information for you here.
How much tile varnish per sqm?
As a rule, 1 litre of varnish is enough for up to 10 sqm with 2 coats. The best thing to do is to roughly calculate the area to be painted. Then simply enter the number of square metres into the quantity calculator, which you will find next to each colour shade in the shop. The calculated consumption always refers to 2 coats. Usually that is enough. However, depending on the painting technique and the colour you choose, you may need more.
Is tile paint waterproof?
Of course, our varnishes cannot simply be wiped off with water, so nothing stands in the way of a new tile colour in the bathroom. However, if you paint tiles that come into contact with water very often - e.g. in the shower or on the tiled backsplash in the kitchen - you can additionally protect the varnish from the increased exposure to moisture with Painting the Past Sealer.
Please note that our varnishes do not tolerate standing water. It is therefore not advisable to paint floor tiles inside a shower or uncovered tiles outside. Of course, you can also clean painted tiles with mild cleaning agents.

Due to their stability, our paints have a long life. So you have to paint less often. And even if you have to do it quickly, the varnishes and paints are super suitable, because they dry quickly.
When developing our MissPompadour Paints, sustainability is a top priority for us. That's why our MissPompadour Paints are free of animal ingredients and therefore vegan. The colour Strong Shimmering is ecologically produced and water-based. It has a low odour and is also very suitable for households with children due to its low volatile organic content (VOC). Is sustainability as important to you as it is to us? Then take a look at what MissPompadour is doing for sustainability!
