Can we Paint Tiles?

Quick answer.... With Frenchic, Absolutely yes!!!

 There are times in projects where you can't afford to embark on a big, expensive renovation just yet. Or maybe you adore the functionality of your space, but the color of the tiles leaves much to be desired. That's where Frenchic Al Fresco comes in as the perfect solution. With this versatile paint, you can breathe new life into various surfaces, including kitchen splashbacks, tile floors, bathroom tiles, and even your showers. However, it's important to note that it is best suited for areas not fully submerged in water, so it's not recommended for use on baths and basins/sinks.

Al Fresco boasts impressive durability, making it perfect for high-traffic areas like kitchen floors.
