The tiles in my shower are hideous and I have used tile paint on them.Although I have prepped and took my time,it lasts 2 years max, starts to peel and I have to redo it again(3 times in 5 years).I was thinking about applying a large sheet of vinyl,would it work?Would regular exposure to warm water lift it?An odd query I know but if it worked it would take me an hour to do and cost a fraction of what paint would cost,more importantly, it may last a good few years.Lads wrap their cars in the stuff so maybe its a goer?

Tried it this morning,scalpel and squeegee in hand,its very very fiddly, the red mist descended and I had to walk away.Its a 2 man job,I will regroup and go at it again.Actually those panels look good.
