Inspiration, DIY projects, and advice all about d-c-fix®
Out with the old, in with the new – this is something of a slogan for us at d-c-fix®. Because we firmly believe that an individual interior design style doesn’t need to be expensive or difficult to achieve. Moreover, recycling existing furniture or decorative items is good for the environment and sends a positive signal in terms of sustainability. First and foremost, the upcycling of furniture with the help of our d-c-fix® products such as our adhesive foils in wood and stone looks and other modern designs is a unique way to provide greater individuality in your four walls and create unique pieces that are not available anywhere else.
How about a DIY for your desk, for example? With the help of our d-c-fix® adhesive foil in the Romeo matt white design, small scratches, pen marks and the like disappear in an instant behind a noble marble look. Your old table will instantly be turned into an eye-catcher that will fit in perfectly with modern interiors. In combination with materials such as velvet or other heavy fabrics and decoration in metallic tones, the high-quality look is further enhanced.
But the d-c-fix® range doesn’t only include stone looks or designs with vintage touches, wood looks are also very popular. With our self-adhesive wall tiles or Ceramics 3D wall coverings you can, for example, easily renew the tile backsplash in your kitchen – and without the effort and dirt that comes with laying real tiles. And if you get tired of that tile mirror after a few years: no problem. Our products are easy to remove again. This is especially important if, for example, you live in a rented house and are unable to easily carry out major renovations in the kitchen or bathroom. The same also applies to floors. You don’t like the tiles the previous tenant laid in the guest bathroom? Then simply let them disappear underneath our floor tiles. Here again, you can choose from a wide range of designs.
You can also set special accents on your windows. Here, the d-c-fix® glass foils are just the right choice. No matter if you want to create a privacy screen to ward off your neighbors’ prying glances or if you want to visually enhance your window surfaces according to the seasons. With d-c-fix®, you’re guaranteed to find the right product for your home DIY.
