It can brighten up even the tiniest nook

Many kitchens showcase white cabinets that sometimes need a touch of color. If painting it or using wall decals is out of the question, use vibrant or patterned contact paper to spice up the inside of your cabinets. Choose patterns and colors depending on the contents of each to achieve an even more colorful impact!

RL Tip: If you're ready to take things to the next level, decorate the doors of your cabinets using contact paper with charming prints, too! It can serve as an accent in your cooking corner.

You can use it to personalize storage bins

Plain boxes and containers can make a home office or study area seem dull. Add life to usual storage pieces by wrapping each with colorful contact paper and even textured ones! Your finished projects can also serve as decor, too!
