Oh, we love a before and after! How satisfying is it to see a poor-to-average room turned into something absolutely stunning? We especially love a before and after project that's really easy to copy yourself, and that's exactly what this hallway makeover is – super cheap and super easy.
Keep scrolling to find out how interiors Instagrammer Marieke (follow her account @whisperingbold for more gorgeous ideas) transformed her drab hallway tiles into something amazing using a very easy trick.

So this is the before. Nothing awful, not too aesthetically offensive but the hallway floors does look a bit tired and the dark tiles aren't working in a space that doesn't get much natural light. What's the solution? Pull up the tiles and replace? Ha, no no no, this makeover is far quicker and cheaper than that...
Ta da! The answer is tile stickers! Literally, vinyl tiles that you peel the back off and stick over your original tiles. It takes a day at most (with coffee breaks, of course) to completely cover your old flooring. It looks totally stunning on this hallway floor but would work just as well in a kitchen or bathroom too.
We love how the monochrome works with the colours of the stained glass and the belly baskets add the perfect amount of interest and texture. The best part? You could do this makeover yourself for under £50 – check out places like Etsy, B&Q and Wayfair for plenty of stylish options. If you after the exact same tiles used by Marieke, they are from Moon Wall Stickers. You can also pick up baskets similar to these from Amazon really cheaply, pop in some house plants and you're done!
Would you ever guess these weren't real tiles? We don't think so...
