May: Stick-On Tile Accents
All-white tiled walls look classic, sure, but they can also feel unpleasantly antiseptic. Now you can add a few patterned pieces—in mere minutes—with decals. Use a few to spice up shower walls, or add a whole row to break up a kitchen backsplash. As easy to apply as the ubiquitous wall versions, these removable vinyl stickers withstand moisture, heat, and plenty of splashes.
Bonus: Opaque graphics will camouflage hairline cracks on older tiles, too. To apply, clean the tile’s surface according to package instructions (some stickers require dry walls, some use water), peel off the decal’s backing, and position on the tile. Use a squeegee or credit card to smooth out any air bubbles, then let dry for about 24 hours. The decal should stay in place until you remove it—whether you change your mind in three months or three years.
