Hanging your wallpaper


PREPARATORY WORK

To ensure the best result, make sure your wall is sound, dry and clean. If necessary, fill uneven surfaces from flaking paint and loose wallpaper. Prime coating is needed if the wall has heavy colour differences. Absorbent surfaces should be sized, such as plaster walls.

WALLPAPER PASTE
Use a paste suitable for non-woven wallpapers.

RECOMMENDED TOOLS

  • Rollers and tray
  • Paintbrush for areas where the roller cannot operate
  • Bucket
  • Spirit level or plumb line
  • Steel ruler to make straight and clean cuts
  • Wallpaper sponge
  • Craft knife
  • Wallpapering tool or brush
  • Pencil
HANGING THE WALLPAPER

Our lengths should be hung edge to edge, not overlapping. The first length should be hung vertically straight, for best result use the plumb line to make a straight pencil mark on the wall near the ceiling. Try to hang the first length accordingly. The paste is then rolled straight onto the wall, evenly spread over the entire surface to avoid bubbles. Paste an area of one and a half lengths at a time. It is essential that there is paste where the edges meat to avoid any visible seams. You should avoid getting paste on the surface of the wallpaper, but if that happens, remove it immediately bu using your wet wallpaper sponge. The lengths should then be smoothed by using the wallpaper tool or a brush, make sure it is clean. Work from the middle to the edges and from the ceiling to the floor.

Once the hanging process is finalized, cut off any excess wallpaper gently along the ceiling and the floor, use your craft knife and make sure it is sharp. During the next 24 hours, keep the room ventilated and at normal room temperature to allow the paste to dry.
