Restyling a Bathroom on a Shoestring Budget With Stick'n Stile Appliqués
You don't have to spend a fortune on remodeling to breathe new life into the bathroom. There's a new product on the market that makes brightening up your bathroom as easy as 1, 2, 3.
"A lot of people have plain bathrooms that aren't attractive, but that problem is easy to fix with our Stick'n Stile Design Appliqués," saya Todd Imholte, president of Environmental Graphics, a Hopkins, Minn., company that specializes in decorative products for the home.
Linda Steen of Kissimmee, Fla., read about the appliqués in her local newspaper and says she had to have them. "I drove all the way to Daytona Beach (52 miles one way) to get to the only store around that has them," says Steen. She decorated her bathroom with Water World design appliqués, featuring tropical fish. "When I moved into my house, the bathroom was already tiled. I wanted a change but didn't want to tear it apart, so these were just perfect. I get lots of comments from guests. They are all positive!"
"What makes our product unique is that it's a raised appliqué that has the look and feel of ceramic, and it takes just seconds to apply," says Imholte. "Once you have designed your layout and cleaned the surface, all you have to do is peel the liner and stick the appliqué to the surface."
"It was so easy to do," says Steen. Removal is easy, too. The adhesive is strong enough to withstand heat and humidity in the bathroom, but easily gives way when heat from a hair dryer is applied directly.
Stick'n Stile appliqués come in 6 designs. In addition to Water World, there are also Fiji Palms, Orchid Narcissus, Botanica, Summertime, and Geo Squares. The Design Appliqués retail for $14.99 per package and are currently available at Bed Bath and Beyond stores nationwide. You can also buy them online.
