A modern solution for outdated spaces, The Tile Society, a new e-commerce shop for home improvement introduces 3D peel-and-stick tiles to the UAE to revolutionise the interior design landscape. Perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, or to add some personality to other various surfaces, this DIY-friendly alternative makes it easy to achieve a fresh, contemporary look while eliminating the need for a full renovation that comes with days or weeks of labour, heavy-duty tools and a royal mess! This ‘to your doorstep’ concept makes home improvement easy and exciting rather than exhausting, time-consuming, and expensive for the modern resident.
The perfect solution for homeowners, tenants, realtors, Air BnBs, offices, and even the hospitality industry, 3D peel-and-stick tiles make achieving contemporary spaces seen on Pinterest, magazines, and television screens a reality with a simple ‘peel and stick’! These 3D peel-and-stick tiles are easy to use, and eliminate the stress, cost, construction and hassle of going into a full-fledged home renovation. They are light-weight, easy to cut for precision and fit, and can last up to 10 years without losing colour, cracking, or peeling. Despite the strong adhesive that helps it stick to the surface, it is easy to remove (up to 20 times) before firmly setting it in place for a final finish. For tenants worried about jeopardising their security deposit, the 3D peel-and-stick tiles can be removed at any time without damaging the original surface using a hairdryer to loosen up the glue, and ammonia solution to wipe off residue. Designed keeping kitchens and bathrooms in mind, the high-quality PVC material makes the 3D peel-and-stick tiles waterproof, oil-proof and heat-resistant. It also comes at a fraction of the time traditional options like ceramic or porcelain tiles require for installation.
The idea behind this revolutionary concept stemmed from the personal challenges of founders Stephanie Farah and Mostafa Elhrizi, who were seeking innovative, yet cost-effective ways to give their own home a spruce. While researching tiles and looking more into the local interior design industry, they discovered that no company in the UAE offered the quick and convenient fix they needed. Necessity truly proved to be the mother of innovation, as Stephanie and Mostafa decided to combine forces to offer other UAE residents the same solution they needed.
“We really aimed to simplify the home renovation woes of time constraints, acquiring permits, approvals from landlords, and other limitations by making the aesthetics of a luxurious home accessible to all,” explained co- founder and co-owner, Stephanie Farah. “This trend is largely accepted and loved in other parts of the world for its speed, efficiency, durability and attractive appearance, making it the future of design. Something as simple as changing tiles on your wall can drastically transform a space, making it more inviting and charming. As we all spend more time at home, not only do we want our space to be aesthetically-pleasing, but also avoid third-party help coming through your home for days or weeks on end.”
Co-founder and co-owner, Mostafa Elhrizi, adds: “customisation has never been easier, with the opportunity to revamp an entire space in just a few hours, removing the need for heavy-duty tools, concrete, having to leave home indefinitely until the project is complete or pay landlords for damaging their property. 3D peel-and-stick tiles is a real DIY-friendly task, and a smart, cost-effective solution for everyone.”
