The $3 tool that instantly makes your cupboards, doors and kitchen bench tops look more expensive

Renovating your home can be expensive and messy, particularly if you’ve never been a hands on kind of person. 

But Kmart’s revolutionary adhesive rolls in the home decor space have been making waves online because they looks like timber flooring and marble tiles.

Clever DIY’ers have been using the adhesive to redesign their kitchen counter, bathroom vanity, coffee table, cupboards and doors – making a statement without breaking the bank. 

Others have used the vinyl sheets to create entire feature walls – with one woman, Tash, using the light wood grain and marble print vinyl sheets to makeover her bedroom.

‘It was so easy to apply and best of all it cost $25,’ Tash, 43, told FEMAIL.

The roll comes in three different colours – a dark wood grain, light wood and marble – and costs just $3 for two metres.

Using it near a hot surface like the stove or water like the bathroom has a tendency to discolour whatever is underneath it, one person wrote online.

‘Leaves an extremely nasty sticky mess. I feel Kmart needs to add a warning to the packet,’ she said.

‘Just use baby oil to get the stickiness off once you remove it,’ one person suggested.
