5 Contact Paper Home Hacks you Need to do Now!

Wish to make a major revamp to your space without the commitment? As tacky as it may sound, contact paper, that roll of paper with a decorative surface and an adhesive back you get from hardware stores, may just be best thing you’ll ever purchase for your home!

1)    Transform your stair risers

Turn your staircase into a starecase with contact paper! To bring a refreshing accent into the mix of your home, play around with bold colors and playful prints between risers! Not only will it be a definite eye-catcher, it will also bring a whole lot of personality to the room.

2)    Get into every nook and cranny

Keep the inner linings of your drawers as attractive as the outside! Go for contact paper that contrasts the color of the paint finish (a clean, crisp white exterior with a shocking yellow interior, perhaps?). It will leave a pleasant surprise when it’s opened!

4)    Marvel with Marble!

One of the most elegant looking pieces of furniture are usually made of marble—it brings a simple yet sophisticated quality to the room. Hmm, but why spend big bucks on marble pieces when you can craft marble-printed contact paper and get the same result? Easily spruce up the class and take boring old tables, countertops, and even boxes into a whole new level!

5)    Make a contemporary statement

Frame elegantly patterned contact paper and mount it up on the wall. Place it on an odd corner on the wall and voila, not you’ll have an instant statement piece and conversation starter!
