Directions to hang your wallpaper
To ensure that you get the best possible finish, sand away any surface bumps and remove any aking material from walls, leaving them ready for papering.
Unwrap and roll out your wallpaper. Check that you are happy with the product and that you have all the rolls needed for the job.
Each roll can be separated by cutting along the dotted lines. The roll numbers will allow you to line them up in order ready to use.
Choose where you want to start wallpapering from (moving from left to right) and measure the width of one roll (roughly 625mm). Using a spirit level or plumb line, you can make a straight line down the wall to act as a guide when applying the wallpaper. You can repeat this across the wall for additional guidance.
Generously apply the water to the wall using a spray bottle. Make sure it is evenly dispersed, there should be enough so that the water droplets are visible on the wall surface, don’t worry about applying too much water. We would even advise to quickly bath the wallpaper in water too before hanging.
To make the roll easier to carry to the wall, fold the roll together gently in the middle with the pattern on the inside. Line up the top of the length with your earlier guideline and the ceiling before letting go of the folded roll. Don’t worry if you make a mistake, remove the full length from the wall and start again. It may be necessary to add more water to the wall if it has started to dry.
Use your papering tool to smooth out the wallpaper starting at the ceiling and working down the wall from the middle out to the edges. This will remove and surplus water and air bubbles. For best results make sure you keep the papering tool clean at all times, removing any adhesive or ink residue.
Ensure that the wallpaper is pushed tight into the edges of the wall before trimming any excess wallpaper. Steel rules or spatulas are good tools to use for neat and straight edges. Replace your knife blade often, as a dull blade can easily tear the wallpaper.
Repeat these steps to complete your wall.
