Painting tiles or painting bathrooms tiles especially is not a long term solution. Whether six months or six years from now, the paint will begin to flake and chip.

If you are going to paint tiles or paint bathroom tiles my advice is only do this for selling reasons if the goal is spruce up your bathroom to make it more sellable or if you are painting tiles away from moisture or areas you will walk on.
