Where to buy self-adhesive tiles in Australia

Stick-on tiles are somewhat underestimated by modern interior design. Here is exactly where to find high quality, long-lasting adhesive tiles.

Stick-on tiles are a type of vinyl tiles which can be installed on top of a variety of surfaces such as gyprock, painted walls, stainless steel, plastic, existing tile, and even glass. The majority of self-adhesive tiles are applied using a peel and stick method, making them extremely easy to install.

Stick-on tiles are useful for a variety of reasons. Their easy installation (and removal) is one of the main reasons that one might choose sticky tile over traditional methods. Stick-on tiles do not require grout, so they are a simple DIY job and will be low maintenance for the duration of their life.

Self adhesive tiles can last anywhere between 5-25 years depending on how well cared for they are. Peel and stick tiles leave walls and floors undamaged, so they are a great option for renters who want to make their place feel more like home. Stick-on tile is also far less expensive than traditional tile (only around $1-$5 per square foot), so you won’t be losing out on a potential investment.

Stick on tiles are a quick and simple way to drastically change the appearance of your interior. Common areas in which stick on tile is installed include the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and laundry. Self stick tile comes in a huge variety of styles, colours, materials and prices. They can be applied to walls or floors inside and outside, and are usually waterproof enough to cope with high exposure areas such as showers or splashbacks.
