Steps to renovate the kitchen
Before you begin, you should clean the tiles with TSP. This will remove any soap scum, oils, built-up grime, etc. The joints must be cleaned by rubbing vigorously with a brush to remove dirt, grease and mildew.
Either spray or roll Aqua Borne Blockout/Undercoater White.
After that coat is dry, spray or roll Grahams Acrylic Enamel, using a universal tint if youre not looking for a white finish. You can choose either a gloss, satin, or flat sheen.
