Woman makes her dark and cramped kitchen look bright and spacious – and all she used for £8 Wilko stickyback plastic


ONE woman created her dream kitchen without breaking the back thanks to one handy product from Wilkos.
The social media user shared the fruits of her labour with the Facebook group Extreme Budget and DIY hacks.

Before it underwent a drastic makeover, the kitchen looked dark, drab and cramped.
The dark grey counter tops did nothing for the small room.
But with the addition of white sticky-back plastic, the room looks much lighter, airier and larger.
Proud of her handiwork, the woman wrote,”So we transformed our kitchen! It’s really small and the black work tops made it feel even more cramped! Cost about £30 all together.”

To achieve the kitchen makeover, the woman used D-C Fix Adhesive in Matte White, which retails for £8 a roll at Wilkos.
Other Facebook users quickly commended her handiwork and complemented the finished product.
One person wrote: “Great it makes it look much bigger.”

Peel-and-stick vinyl plastic has become a trendy way for renters and homeowners alike to add a modern update to surfaces, cupboards and walls in recent years.

Sticky back plastic is easy to apply and comes with handy gridlines, which make it easy to measure out the appropriate length and cut the material in straight lines.

The transformative home makeover tip is beloved by renters, as the plastic is easily removed with the help of a hairdryer. Simply head the plastic to loosen the glue and pull it away.
