How To Mimic LG's Decorated Appliances

How To Mimic LG's Decorated Appliances

Back in 2008, LG Electronics came out with a series of home appliances with interesting floral designs integrated on to their exteriors. Unfortunately, the series, dubbed Art Flowers and shown in the first three images in the above gallery, was only available in Malaysia. Still, we fell in love with the idea of decorating dull kitchen and laundry appliances with decals and thought, who says you can't do this yourself? We've seen the same idea on laptops, why not other items?

Using vinyl decals, you could easily paste up an appliance you've been hating and turn it into a work of art. Luckily since Blik, the founding fathers of vinyl decals in the home, launched their company vinyl decals have become a pretty varied d├ęcor category. You can now find any design style you can imagine via sites like Etsy. Plus, they're just as easy to take off (without damaging your goods) as they are to put on so you don't have to worry about mucking up that $500 washer/dryer you just had delivered.

Check out Blik's recently launched artist series, blogged about on ATLA, from folks like Hannah Stouffer, Saelee Oh, Jeremy Fish, and Amy Ruppel.

Our only advice, don't put these on appliances that get hot, such as toasters or ovens. We're not sure how the vinyl would react to extreme heat.
