If a tacky color is making your tile countertop look dated, painting it is an easy way to update it.
Paint may seem like an unorthodox idea for a tile surface, but if you prepare it properly, ceramic tile takes paint well.
If you want a little more flair, however, opt for tile decals with a bold pattern.
A simple geometric design with squares, circles or triangles offers a modern look, but for a fun touch, consider a graphic design with colorful animals or other images.
They're also water-resistant and easy to remove when you want to change your countertop's look.
