Super Easy Toilet Makeover That Anyone Can Do

Last week, Zoe Giplin from @thediydecorator took Instagram by storm when she posted her DIY toilet makeover using our tile stickers.

Zoe has chosen our "white & grey" tile stickers to give her toilet a facelift.

She started off with this toilet:

Below are the step by step guide:

1. Measure space and purchase tiles

In this project, Zoe used about 42 tiles including some mistakes. 

We have a tile calculator on our website but if you're still not sure, just email us your area measurements and we will estimate how many tiles you'll need. Its best to purchase a few more to allow for mistakes!

2. Prepare the wall

This is important! Make sure you clean the walls well and allow to dry before proceeding. For areas like kitchen, it's always recommended to use a degreaser to thoroughly clean the surface.

3. Plan out how you want the tiles to look like and start installing!

If installing on huge walls, it is always recommended you draw a line on the wall and use a spirit level to make sure your tiles will be straight and uniform!

Next, just peel off the backing paper and.....stick!

4. Add timber strip along walls using liquid nails.

This is such a simple addition but makes such a huge difference. Zoe used Porta Timber's timber strip from Bunnings.

If you're not sure how to use liquid nails, here's a helpful video:

Zoe also painted the bottom bit of tiles using Dulux's tile paint in white to tie the whole look together.

Sounds simple and so doable right?!
