You can paint floor tiles if you employ the proper preparation techniques. Paint won't stick to under-prepared floor tiles, whether they're made of vinyl, fiberglass, porcelain, ceramic, terrazzo or mosaic. Before you even think of trying to add a painted finish to your floor tiles, abrade them using sandpaper. Once the tiles feel rough to your hands, you may apply a primer base. Painting floor tiles isn't particularly difficult as long as you adopt the proper prep strategy.
