Let me start out by saying that I despise white tile. Our shower, kitchen back-splash AND kitchen counter-top are made of 4 x 4 white tiles with white grout. It's ugly and gets dirty way too easily. I've been meaning to spruce up our kitchen with some vinyl for a while now and finally got inspiration. This is a great alternative if you are renting or want to add some color on the cheap.
We just put out these really cute 8 petal flowers, they are really simple and versatile and are sold in sets of 4. Made to fit perfectly on 4 x 4 tiles but can be used on any smooth surface (appliances, jars, etc)
I used 1 sheet each of Gold, Orange Red and Teal Blue (12 total flowers)
You will need:
Credit Card or piece of stiff plastic to smooth out bubbles
To start I cleaned all the tiles with windex and made sure they were dry. Decals will not stick to a wet or dirty surface!
Pro Tip: If the tiles are cold and decals wont stick, apply the decal and without removing the adhesive transfer paper, gently heat with a hairdryer to warm both the tile and decal. Smooth out with your fingers and then remove the transfer paper.
I then laid out my decals how I want them on the back-splash. Always plan ahead, although our decals can be removed, they cannot be reused.
Working from left to right, I peeled off the white backing and applied them to the tiles.
Smooth out any bubbles with your credit card/plastic piece and carefully peel back the opaque application paper.
Now step back and enjoy! I also put one on another part of back-splash next to our stove and one on a utensil holder to tie it all together.
