Reglazing tile - what do you REALLY think?

My bath floor tiles are looking a bit tired. Even after cleaning them. They are matte white.

Are the reglazing kits really effective? Can they stand up to shoe traffic?

Or is it just marketing and I'll be in the same situation in a year?

If I do the entire floor, what does it do to the grout? That is, can I seal it again in the future?

Thanks for the input - good, bad, or ugly.

I take it from the underwhelming response that these kits are not popular.

There isn't much good to say. It's essentially paint applied to a surface difficult for paint to stick. I would never consider it for a floor.

Do not re-glaze floor tile. It will peel off. If you roughen up the tile, it will stick better, but it still will come off. On the wall, it may be ok to some degree, but it can still chips off when cleaning.
I know this from actually experience from apartments I renovated and tiles and tub were professionally re-glazed with 2 part epoxy and they still peels off.
