If you’ve enjoyed a beautiful natural stone finish throughout your home for some time, whether it be marble stone flooring, slate cladding or limestone wall tiling, there comes a time for many where painting over walls helps to promote a newly introduced interior design scheme.
If you’ve got a similar predicament to deal with, you might be interested to learn about how you could paint over your currently installed stone tiles. There are plenty of natural stone tiles that can be painted over when given the correct treatment, so here’s a quick guide to painting your stone tiles.
The first thing to do is to sand over your tiling as this creates a rough surface that can be easily painted on.
Once you’ve achieved a rough finish, you need to clean the wall with a thick scrub brush before making sure the wall is dry.
Apply two separate coats of primer before sanding over the tiling so that you get rid of any imperfections. Apply the second coat only after the first has dried completely.
Paint over the tiles with two separate layers using a foam roller. Continue to search for imperfections and sand over them if necessary.
Your tiling should now be ready for paintwork, so pick your chosen colour preference and start decorating!
