You have everything you need? Then get started!
First, thoroughly clean the surfaces of the kitchen fronts to be covered.
Now determine the dimensions of the inner surfaces of the kitchen fronts.
Use a ruler to transfer the measurements to the backing paper of the adhesive foil.
Now cut the foil pieces to size.
Tip: if you use a utility knife, it is best to use a cut-resistant base – this makes cutting to size easier.
Now peel off the backing paper on the foil piece and position the latter on the inner surface of the kitchen front.
Work your way forward piece by piece with the adhesive foil and smooth it firmly into place using the smoothing blade.
Cut the adhesive foil at the corners using scissors or a utility knife.
Smooth down the edges firmly using the smoothing blade.
Now carefully cut off the excess adhesive foil along the edge using the utility knife.
Determine the dimensions of the side surfaces, cut the foil pieces accordingly and apply them to the kitchen front.
Cut the adhesive foil at the corners of the kitchen front. Then pull the foil around the edge and fold over one of the cut sides – next, smooth down using the smoothing blade and apply the other side in the same way.
As a finishing touch to the covering, heat the foil slightly using a hot-air gun and press the adhesive foil well onto the inner edges of the door front using the smoothing blade.
Finally, mount the previous handles or new ones if you prefer.
