To give you useful insight into this newly launched product, today’s post is going to be about everything that you need to know about photo tiles. Read on and fall in love with this new addition.

 

What Is Photo Tiles?

Photo tiles are removable and reusable lightweight panels of photos that are printed in a square shape (8-inch by 8-inch). They are like a real-life version of the Instagram feed tiles that you can arrange one another to create wall art and beautify an empty wall of your home effortlessly.

Come with a sleek pine wood frame, Pixajoy’s photo tiles are perfect for those who like simple, uncluttered spaces with clean lines and a lack of fussy adornments. As photo tiles are quite stylish and smaller in size, they’ll allow you to save your space, create a modern look, not to worry about the larger image files to produce sharp images and brighten up your home in an easy way. They are basically, one of the most trending and easy-to-use wall art decors items.

What Makes Them Unique?

When it comes to personalised photo tiles, we should say that we have something better than good! Pixajoy’s photo tiles are designed with specific features in mind to help you to spruce up your home and preserve your precious memories in style. Here are some of the interesting features that make them unique and interesting:
  • Hassle Free-Display

While you can use any of our other home decor products to adorn the walls of your home, the photo tiles appeal elsewhere. The photo tiles that are designed with adhesive backing, are easier for you to stick and display your moments without, nails, holes and damaging the surface of your walls. This will definitely be an easy way to spruce up the home, especially for those who live in an apartment or rent house.

  • Removable and Restickable

It is not a rare thing that you may want to change your photo to another place at times. Utilising the re-stickable adhesive tape, you can also easily swap out, re-arrange and re-stick your personalised tiles anywhere, anytime you want and in any patterns or sequences and show your creativity without worrying about drilling holes or pounding nails onto any surface. The  adhesive backing material is stronger and doesn’t lose it traction in a very short time.

  • Make a Chic Addition to Your home

 Printed and mounted onto ultra-light pinewood frames, this durable,ultra- weight pieces of wall art would give your home a simple yet modern look. Speaking about the pine wood frame, you can choose either the photo tiles should be mounted on front or back of the pinewood frame. If you opt for the front mount, your photo tiles will give off a unique 3D pop-up effect that will surely add more dimension into a room and give your walls more texture.

Meanwhile, if you opt for the back mount, it will put more focus on the image itself, drawing the eyes in and giving your image a real feeling of depth. Whichever style you choose, you can rest assured that the beautiful gloss coated photo tiles, will give your moments a wow-worthy HD effect.

 As we have mentioned before, displaying photo tiles are breeze. You won’t need any extra tool such as hammer, nails, screws or drilling machine. All that you need to do are:

  • Decide Where You Want to Add Your Photo Tiles.

Whether you want to create a perfect wall gallery or just display one or two photo tiles, you should decide the space you want to decorate earlier. We would recommend you to look for a spot that’s spacious enough to comfortably place the number of tiles you want to adorn your walls with. Mounting photo tiles in areas like inside the entry hallway, at the foot of the central staircase, or above the couch in your living room is a great way to go.

  • Remove the Backing From the Adhesive Pad

You’ll find a re-stickable adhesive tape on the back of the photo tiles.  To stick the photo tiles, you should loosen the edge of the backing with your fingernail to get it started, then peel it off as you would peel off sticker backing. Now your photo tiles are ready to be added on your walls.

  • Press the Upper Edge of The Tiles into The Wall

Take a moment to double-check if the tiles are properly spaced and aligned. If you’re happy with the placements, push the top part of the frame straight into the wall- giving a firm pressure with both hands. And that’s it! You’re done!

Creative Ways to Display Photo Tiles

When it comes to home decor process,  decor items are not the only things that can make your home look beautiful, but also your creativity on displaying them. Here are 3 top ideas you can try to decorate your homes with photo tiles.
