changing the color of red slate tile floor

Hi All

I have slate in my hallway from the 50's or 60's. They are multi colored (red, grey, greenish/grey, black) and multi sized. The only thing I hate about the floor are the red tiles. The red makes it look so dated. Ripping up the floor is not an option. Is there a product that will allow me to change the color from red to black? Thank you!!

Not really much you can do in your situation. Paint the tiles? Guess you could, but I wouldn't.
They didn't want it good, they wanted it Wednesday.

some red slates look more like brown when wet. If this is the case with yours, you could use a colour enhancing sealer to achieve that permanently. Always test a hidden spot first.
