D.I.Y - Kitchen Tiles

Other

Hiya everyone just looking to see if anyone got any ideas.

Im currently redecorating but my house is rented, we are allowed to paint the walls etc but my kitchen tiles are blue 🤢 i cant paint them because its too permananet i need something that can be removed. Ive looked at vinyl but not sure that would stick tiles, also some of the tiles are behind the cooked so i need something thats heat resistant.

I was thinking i could get the plastic cladding but i dont think that will be very good by the cooker 🙈

Anyone know what i can do to cover them please.

They have this problem in America too this might help https://www.apartmentguide.com/blog/no-paint-allowed-5-options-for-temporary-wall-coverings/(tile decals seem to be the favoured solution).

If you're worried about heat behind the cooker - why bother doing anything where it can't be seen.

davidstockport it can be seen. The hobs are built into the kitchen worktop and the edge is about 2-3cm away from the wall. Im not sure if their built so that nothing on the outside of frame doesnt burn or what. I could put a piece of paper of the wall, turn the hobs on and see what happens 🤣

KirsteyJames yes 100% my husband got paint on some of our floor tiles and used white spirit, obviously was super strong but it done the job 🙂

Have you considered kitchen? 'splashback' panels. Some of them are heat resistant and are light enough to attach with double sided tape or clumps of blu tack. Not 100% sure on the company but it's something like metals for you - worth a look. IKEA also do various panels.

Try Vinyl wrap

This one looks quite nice - i vinyl wrapped my car recently it sticks and stays on a treat

Or you can try the latest non vinyl acrylic wrap but its more expensive

This one is rather classy lol

If the vinyl is similar to that in vinyl records (33rpms and 45rpms) I don't think it will be very heat resistant. You could put a Max Bygraves or Des O'Connor record behind the cooker to check. (If that doesn't melt them a hammer might do the trick ☺)
