Vinyl Home's DIY products put to the test by bloggers

  • 2 min read

Applying sticky back plastic and self-adhesive tiles is a quick and easy DIY job. At least we think so. BUT what better way than to see what others have done with the products and to hear their honest opinion about them.

We have collected some of the latest blogs written about Vinyl Home and our high quality products. We highly recommend that you check them out. 

Vink Vibe: AIR B ‘N’ B STUDIO SUITE REVEAL

Melanie has used the Milano White Smart Tiles to create a nice modern splash back in her studio kitchenette. She even created this awesome video tutorial for us explaining how she did it. She shares some great tips on what to think of when applying the self-adhesive tiles.

Here is the finished result of her kitchenette hack. Because it's a small space and she's used the narrow Milano Smart Tiles it gives the illusion that the space is bigger than it is.

Melanie had a few tiles left over so she used them in her guest bathroom as a splash back above the basin. That way she keeps the same look throughout her entire space. You can read Melanie's entire blog about her Air B 'n' B Studio Suit reveal here.

Seb Makeup: LAUNDRY RENO WITH VINYL HOME

Seb and her husband never completed their laundry when they built their house. They have now given their laundry a complete finished modern look with our Smart Tiles and self-adhesive vinyl from d-c-fix.

Seb had selected the Metro Blanco Smart Tiles to use on the wall. She already had a shelf in place so covering the wall below the shelf created a natural space for the self-adhesive tiles.

Then her husband created a bench top out of wood that was tailored for the space.

Seb covered the wood in Marble Marmi Grey sticky back plastic. When she was finished she had her complete waterfall edge bench top that's she's been dreaming of.

Miss, Trilly & Me: OUR PROJECT POPPY

Mel has done what many DIYers and upcyclers are only dreaming about... She has stripped a caravan back to the walls and given it a complete makeover. She's written an in-depth blog post of how she did it and where she sourced the material.

For her splash back in the little kitchenette she used our self-adhesive hexagon tiles.

She didn't stop with the tiles. She also wrapped her fridge in mint glossy sticky back plastic and added a metallic gold strips to it.
