painting ceramic tile

Help!!! I hate this tile!! We bought this house with this in it. I want to change the color. Any idea how to change it. I think it is just paint but wondering how to cover that awful red.
Also want to change the black cabinet eventually! Not sure what color. The wall color is kind of grey tanish!!
The orginial cabinets are Alder wood and beautiful. Why they would do this is beyond me!!
Thanks for any suggestions.

I'm with you, kiddo! I'd mask everything off and spray paint it. And I'd go for the good stuff, not the dollar store paint. How much worse could it look?

RE: painting ceramic tile

Hi Sorie6, hope you don't mind my jumping in. New here and hope to help... and oh my, that cabinet is hideous! I think you could get away with repainting the wood and tile some contemporary colors. Something like, let's see.. pigeon gray for the wood, with the trim painted white, to match the trim on the ceiling.. and then a speckled dirty-white finish for the tiles? I saw some tile paint sometime ago, which had a natural stone look when it dried. The name escapes me right now :-/ hope to get back to you on it... But I hope this idea helps.
