A SAVVY woman has revealed how she’s managed to give her kitchen a transformation without any permanent damage.
Dalia often uses her social media channels to share insights into her life, home and DIY adventures.
And in one video, she revealed she simply needed new floors because the “old, brown” one was just not cutting it any longer.
“I want to upgrade them so my floor looks bright and new and clean,” she said.
“However, bear in mind that I’m a renter, so any change that I do have to be fully reversible… And this hack is it.”
She then placed a plastic sheet down and used masked tape to secure it down to cover the entirety of the kitchen floors.

“It’s awesome and simple and completely reversible,” she told viewers.
Measuring the area out, she then placed faux white stick-on marble tiles on the ground.
“Now, it has actually been two years since I moved into this apartment, my bright little slice of heaven with more space than I had ever had before,” she continued.
“With trees out the windows and birds chirping throughout the day… There was just so much to love that the little things like the original, less-than-ideal brown kitchen floors would never have been enough to sway the decision to stay here.”
TikTok user @diydalia then grouted the fake tiles down to make them look seamless.
She went on: “But that’s why I’m so thankful for DIYs like this one.
“There’s simple hacks and upgrades that can fully transform something you don’t quite love into something that you do,
“And I actually installed these floors almost a year ago and I 100% recommend it.”
However, she explained there are a few issues with the floors as she ended the video by slamming her foot down on one corner of a tile – indicating that it was coming out of place.
Peel and stick marble tiles can be found for as little as £50 from Amazon, Deluxe Bathrooms and other online retail stores.
People were quick to comment on the post as one person wrote: “Thank you that is a wonderful idea”.
Another shared: “just recently signed a multi-year lease and I HATE our kitchen floors so tysm for this hack! now I just have to pick a tile…”
While a third asked: “Why not just use peel and stick tiles that don’t need grout? You can pull them up when you need to move.”
She replied: “So I’ve used floorpops before which are as you described and they’re nice but I wanted a slightly more elevated look (with grout).
“You can still pull these up very easily when you need to remove them!”
