If your kitchen tiles are an eyesore, consider hiding them. Covering up your tiles is an ideal solution to keep them out of sight. It's also less costly than tearing the old tiles out and replacing them with new ones. Concealing your outdated tiles can provide a fresh, modern look while hiding any chipped or damaged tiles. Choose from a variety of options to cover up the old tiles while adding a designer-savvy touch to your kitchen.
Cover as many old or damaged tiles as you desire with tile stickers. They are manufactured from a durable material, such as vinyl, that's resistant to damaging heat, water and ultraviolet rays. Self-stick tiles are available in a variety of colors, patterns and styles. To install them, clean the old tiles with an all-purpose cleaner; allow the tiles to dry; remove the paper backing from a self-stick tile; and press it into place over an old tile. Use scissors to cut the tiles to fit around wall switches or electrical outlets. Continue adhering as many self-stick tiles as you need.
