We’re always looking for ways to upgrade our space, but we don’t have a limitless budget! So, when we find ways to achieve the look we want for a fraction of the price… count us in! Below, we have a list of ideas to get high-end looks using… contact paper! That’s right, these fabulous ideas involve nothing more than contact paper of your choice and some elbow grease. Go ahead and check out these fabulous, faux high-end looks!
Do you have boring stairs? You should consider giving them this awesome upgrade! It’s as easy as picking out your favorite contact paper, measuring, cutting to size, and then sticking on the front-facing part of your stairs. It might seem odd at first, but as you can see, the results truly are amazing!
Don’t throw out that old dresser! Make it cute and stylish again with a fresh coat of paint and some contact paper! Simply take the drawers out and cut some contact paper to size. You’ll want the piece of contact paper to be slightly larger than the face of the drawer so you can tuck in the ends and cover the drawer completely.
Faux Wood Cabinets
Want new cabinets but don’t have the time or money to redo an entire room? We’ve got the perfect solution for you! Since there are so many different kinds of contact paper patterns available, it’s easy to find a wood pattern to use to cover your current cabinets in! You might be skeptical at first, but just look at the end result! We love it.
Tired of your boring microwave? Add a splash of style to your kitchen by covering the microwave with some contact paper! It might be fun to add a splash of color, or you can go the marble route like in the example above.
This might be our favorite idea, and of course, it’s the most time-consuming. But, totally worth it! This is such a fun way to add texture to any room with a fun accent wall. By using contact paper, you eliminate the mess that comes with painting, plus, you can get fun designs that might not otherwise be possible to do by hand.
