Save money on ceramic tile when it is old and unsightly by painting it.  Most surfaces can be painted, and tile is no different.  Use the correct primer and paint, and you can make tile look new again.  It is a thrift friendly decorating solution.

Frugal footnotes:

Here are some additional frugal tips to save money on tile.

 

- If you want to replace tile in the kitchen or bathroom, choose a simple, timeless style like
subway tile, and then take it up a notch by using a border or row of the more expensive glass  or ceramic tile.
 
- Look for discounted tile that has either been discontinued or is slightly flawed.
 
- For small tile jobs, look for returns and other discounted pieces.
