Admittedly tiles are the best and most permanent solution to keeping water and grease off the walls in the bathroom and kitchen. But what if you live in rented accommodation and don’t want the expense and upheaval of installing new tiles? Or maybe you are planning a big kitchen refurbishment next year but want to give the room a bit of a mini update in the meantime. Just to make it a bit more, well, insta-worthy. Well, paint is one solution. A kitchen and bathroom paint will add colour, and you’ll be able to give it a scrub when it needs it. But if you want to add pattern or some personality don’t discount wallpaper. These designs from Lime Lace have buckets of instant impact to liven up your grid, and will cost a fraction of the real deal.
Slate Tiles Wallpaper provides a strikingly authentic, industrial and contemporary look. This PVC wallpaper is unbreakable and portrays the texture and imperfect nature of slate tiles amazingly well but without the struggle of cleaning them! A strategically placed shelf will hide the wallpaper edge and enhance the look.
The Portugal design kitchen wall wallpaper details Portuguese tiles in different sunny colours to create a holiday feel to your kitchen or bathroom backsplash! Like all of the papers here you simply cut the wall décor to size and apply using the special glue provided. It’s also very easy to remove – just peel and stick down again.
The Glass Wall design will solve the problem of no or little windows in your kitchen by imitating an industrial glass wall! As the others, it’s water and heat resistant so you can use it behind the hob and oven. And it cleans easily with a cloth and warm water.
The Herringbone design is a modern classic, and is available in 3 decadent colours. As shown here it could easily be an alternative to more expensive tiles if you wish to use it over the entire wall. Looks good too!
Fresco is a bit edgy, even grungy. It takes inspiration from an old wall painting for an unapologetically modern and industrial look.
