I recently bought some for a white trash compactor.  Preferred the white after all so gave the faux stainless away.  I hear it's very nice if applied correctly.

Haven't seen it but would think it could be a nightmare.

It is a super, inexpensive way to give a kitchen a face lift.

I saw it' in the wild' applied to a 1950 Philco, you know the one with the rounded corners. Now that just did not look right at all, even if it was in the garage.

I would rather see a new skin on an appliance that any hint of avocado or harvest gold. 

As you can see, new skins can be applied to completely obscure the origins of a bathroom and kitchen. New skins can create granite looking counter tops, new skins on tub and shower surround, new skins on appliances. So for as little as $2,000 the expensive parts of the house can look brand new. It's a good investment if ROI is the goal. 

Now, we've all seen those botched DIY window tinting jobs. Don't try to do this yourself. It is cheap enough. Hire the guy that does it all day long.

I haven't personally done it, but I've seen it in a house or two and it looked quite nice. But it's more of an option I think for lower priced houses.

I cannot say that I have seen it. Anything faux looks faux!

I have not heard of this, and will need to check it out.   Might as well buy the real thing though!

I've heard about this (from one of my customers) but never seen, and the idea sounds horrible.  I think most people can see through this.

I have not heard of this technique, Chuck. If there are tutorial videos then I woudl be willing to give it a try, that is as long as the materials are not astronomical in price.

Hi Chuck,

This product is good for what it was created to accomplish. Unfortunately, it does take some level of skill to apply it to an appliance without air bubbles, scratches, or rough edges. It says it s a DIY project, but if you have ever had a hard time putting a screen protector on your cell phone just imagine that a hundred times larger.  Peel and stick faux stainless steel was created for use in entry-level homes or rentals where the investment of stainless steel appliances just doesn’t work for the budget or a temporary solution prior to a full renovation. It is an “ok” product and if maintained and not cleaned with abrasive cleaners can last for a decent length of time. It would be a poor choice to install in a home where real stainless steel appliances were expected. 


Hope this helps.
