We think our wallpaper is pretty special and hope you do also!
We do recommend you use a professional wallpaper installer, however if you are feeling confident
then it can be quite easy to hang yourself as long as you are gentle and precise in the process. To help you out, here are some tips!
What you will need: Bucket, sponge, stanley knife, a roller brush and wallpaper adhesive ( we recommend using a quality, water based adhesive paste)
a. Firstly, inspect every roll to ensure that all rolls are in good condition, with no variations in shade, and that no other faults are present.
The company cannot accept liability for defects that are apparent at the time of hanging, nor can the company be responsible for any consequential loss.
After hanging 2 or 3 lengths we strongly recommend that you carefully inspect the results.
b. Make sure your wall is prepped to a smooth, clean and dry surface before installing.
READY TO HANG?
1. Align the first length using a spirit level or plumb line (string + a pair of scissors).
If you prefer, mark guidelines on the surface for more precise wallpapering. Use Pencil Only.
2. Apply sufficient adhesive to the wall to cover just over two panel widths at a time (about 130 cm).
3. When moving the wallpaper to the wall, fold the length together in the middle with the pattern inwards in order to avoid getting adhesive on the front of the wallpaper.
Attach the top of the length to the wall at the preferred height and in the correct position before letting go of the rest.
4. Align the top and bottom of the first length before “smoothing down” the wallpaper.
Don't try to reposition a length of wallpaper. If you make a mistake, remove the length & start over. Apply more adhesive if the first coat has dried.
5. To get rid of air pockets, only use a soft roller or sponge, taking care not to squeeze out the paste between the joins. Work from the top to the bottom and from the middle to the edges.
6. Butt join the lengths of wallpaper together, matching up the edges. Ensure that the lengths are properly positioned and that there is no surface visible at the joints.
It is important that adhesive be applied right out to the edges to ensure the lengths adhere to the wall properly.
7. When you’re happy with the position, cut off the excess paper with a sharp blade to give a clean, straight edge.
Preferably use a steel rule or spatula for support when trimming the wallpaper.
8. Continue in this manner until the wall is finished. Our papers have a traditional matt finish, so you can wipe off any shiny marks from the paste with a damp, soft cloth.
Use a soft clean dry cloth to remove residual water after cleaning to stop marking.
Our wallpapers are not suitable for high humidity areas and as such we cannot guarantee our wallpaper's suitability across all situations.
Where ever you are hanging your wallpaper, please ensure there is enough ventilation as our wallpapers are not waterproof.
Never close up a room with freshly hung wallpaper, leave it to air so the wallpaper can dry properly. The room and wall should be kept at minimum of +18 degrees celsius.
