And this is how the makeover for the kitchen island works:
Clean the surfaces of the kitchen island to be covered with a damp cloth and rub dry.
Now hold the Terrazzo neo foil with the reverse side facing upwards on the work surface and determine the required foil dimension plus some buffer – mark the dimension on the grid with a pencil.
Proceed in the same way with the Sand matt adhesive foil for the other surfaces of the kitchen island.
Remove the backing paper from the cut piece of foil and smooth it onto the surface using the doctor blade.
For a good bonding result at the edges, cut the foil diagonally at the corners.
Fold down the overhanging foil and smooth it down well using the doctor blade.
Now fold the cut corners on the side part to the front, press firmly and smooth into place.
Fold the adhesive foil down at the front edge, fit it around the edge and press it firmly into place – apply the adhesive foil on all sides using this method.
Now remove the protruding foil along the lower edges using the utility knife.
Small air pockets can form, especially when covering larger surfaces – such as the top and side surfaces here. You can puncture these bubbles with a fine needle and then carefully smooth them out with the squeegee.
