Tile renovation made easy

As long as tiles are still intact and hold well on the wall, you do not necessarily have to remove them to breathe new life into the tiled wall. There are other options for that.

What works best for you is decided on the basis of the tile condition: Did the tiles crack, do they have drilled holes that are no longer needed or other damages? Or are they still completely intact? How big is the tiled wall? What kind of decor would you like to have and does it fit the current joint color? Which budget would you like to spend?

Depending on how your answers turn out, different options are available to beautify your tiles. What's up, read below.


They can be used individually to decorate individual tiles and thereby visually spice up the tiled wall. The effect is sometimes amazing.

For damaged tiles is also a good way to make the damage disappear.


If the existing joint color would not fit, you can also cover the entire wall with a plastic film. This gives, especially with picture motives, an interesting optical effect.

Tile lacquer is a relatively cheap but time-consuming and sometimes tricky job. Often then would have to be grouted. But if you just want to have a different color, that can be a way too.

Tips & Tricks
