Shopping edit – 9 fancy tile stickers for an inexpensive refresh

Tile stickers make for an affordable, fuss-free makeover – here are our best picks

On the hunt for some high-quality tile stickers? Maybe your floor-to-ceiling tiles in the kitchen need refreshing? Or, perhaps tiling your bathroom floor on the to-do list? If entirely new tiles are a bit beyond budget, why not consider covering existing tiles with a set of decorative stickers until you can replace them? These tile stickers are where it's at if you're looking to make a decorative statement on a shoestring budget.

Otherwise known as tile decals or vinyl tiles, most kitchen tile stickers are made from heat and water-resistant vinyl. This means they can survive daily wear and tear of busy kitchen and bathroom life. There are tonnes of types of tile stickers available these days, from faux metro tiles to hexagonal tiles and even mosaic tile stickers. We've listed a myriad of choices in our guide, so you'll be sure to find whatever style or shape you are after.

What are tile stickers?
