Stainless steel contact paper renders a modern and classy look to old kitchen appliances. This HomeQuicks article tells you exactly how to apply stainless steel contact paper.
Never apply stainless steel contact paper to a cooking range or stove, since consistent exposure to heat might damage the paper.
Nowadays, there is a trend of having modern kitchens that are equipped with appliances having a metallic shine. Accordingly, if you have an urge to give a makeover to your kitchen (which must be seeming old-fashioned to you by now!) without spending a fortune, then stainless steel contact paper can come to your rescue.
Stainless steel contact paper is an inexpensive, self-adhesive, vinyl film, printed with a faux finish that imitates the look of stainless steel. It is used to cover drawers, cabinets, shelves, furniture, curtain rods, and a variety of other household appliances, including refrigerators, dishwashers, microwaves, ovens, etc. The purpose of using this paper is to enhance the aesthetic value of your kitchen by refurbishing your already existing old appliances. By choosing to use this contact paper, you can save a lot of money, since you need not buy new appliances having a stainless-steel finish.
Stainless steel contact paper comes in a roll that is usually 18 inches × 6 feet in size. It is scratch-resistant and easy to clean, and has a printed measuring grid on the adhesive backing for precise cutting.
Applying Stainless Steel Contact Paper
The same steps apply for covering other appliances too. However, before applying the contact paper, you need to ensure that the surface is free from grime. This is because, even the minutest dust particle will show underneath the paper. Also, if your measurements turn out be inaccurate, then your paper, time, and effort will go waste. Therefore, take care of the small details as discussed above, and you will have a newly renovated kitchen in no time, that too without much expense.
