When it comes to rental properties you hope that you get the right tenant that will look after your investment and keep it clean and tidy. But we all know that in reality this is not always the case and in general there is always maintenance and decorating that needs to be done especially after a tenant has moved out.
So how can you renovate your property without having to spend a fortune on products and tradies? The answer is simple - peel and stick!
Peel and stick vinyl products have really come into their own in the past few years and one of the main reasons is due to the increased quality of the product. Not only do they look good but they are easy to use and do not require a tradie to apply. The simple peel and stick application is as easy as it sounds, enabling you to update and complete projects in a few hours for half the price. You can even apply some tiles on top of existing tiles.
Mouldy grout on your tiles?
At Vinyl Home we have a huge range of peel and stick wall tiles that are modern, on trend and look realistic. Take a look at the classic subway tile and metro tiles; these have 3D gel inside the tile with a glossy finish to give it that realistic look. And because the tiles come in a sheet there is no need to worry about grouting. The tiles are also easy to wipe clean and are designed to be used as a splashback which can be applied in the kitchen, bathroom or laundry.
There are many designs of tile that will suit any home from geometric tiles to vintage designs. And the beauty of these high quality tiles is that the grout will not mould like it does with normal tiles so they are harder wearing. To apply you simply measure, cut, peel and stick onto your wall. It really is that simple.
Got a shower that needs updating?
Bathroom renovations are expensive and ripping out a shower is a scary and expensive thought for a landlord. Take a look at the wet room wall tiles. These tiles can be applied over existing shower tiles but make sure that you seal the joins properly with silicone. The tiles require no special tools and can be easily cut with a craft knife or scissors. The design enables you to simply peel off the backing on the wet wall tile and stick it to the existing surface in the shower. For more information take a look at:
Kitchen cabinets look tired?
The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the house so it makes sense that the kitchen cabinets and benchtops will start to look worn out and in need of replacement after a while. A new kitchen is expensive to buy and to fit so looking at alternatives is definitely something to consider. The Vinyl Home sticky back plastic is a great solution and will give your cabinets and benchtops a complete new look in just one weekend. Take a look at the kitchen makeover video HERE.
This high quality vinyl film comes in a range of designs from gloss white for those cabinets to a wood grain or marble design for your benchtops. The combinations are endless and the price tag is pretty welcoming too. The product is applied directly to the door of the cabinet so once it has been measured you can peel away some of the backing paper, position the film and then slowly work your way down smoothing the film as you go. The end results will have your tenants smiling from ear to ear!
Dated Floor Tiles?
Often the floor gets overlooked and can be the last thing to renovate. This is mainly due to the mess of removing the floor or the cost involved in replacing it. With Vinyl Home floor tiles it is easy to get that fresh new look as these tiles can be placed on top of existing flooring making the whole renovation process easier. Simply clean the existing flooring and then measure the tiles to fit. Once you are happy with the look you can peel off the backing paper and stick the tiles down. These floor tiles are very popular in laundry rooms, cloakrooms and hallways.
If you have an unsightly view out of the window or just want to create some more privacy for your tenants then this revolutionary window film is a must. It can also be used to replace old blinds or netting and is much more hygienic and longer lasting.
The film blocks out the sunlight and the premium range offers 95% UV protection which is great news for any rooms where the harsh NZ sun pours in on furnishings. The film uses static cling which means that you do not use an adhesive. This makes it simple to apply and remove. It can even be reused and is ideal for glass windows, mirrored wardrobes, conservatories, shower screens and garden sheds.
