Installation

Step by step instructions for installing your wallpaper. For best results, use a professional installer.

Paste the wall (see bottom of page for notes on Peel & Stick)

Below, we have provided a guide on installation for both patterns and murals. Before installing, we would recommend allowing the wallpaper to aclimatise to your room temperature to avoid shrinkage. We recommend the following tools for installing your wallpaper;

  • ‘Paste the wall’ adhesive (not applicable for peel & stick)
  • A bucket (not applicable for peel & stick)
  • A pasting brush (not applicable for peel & stick)
  • A sharp knife
  • A straight edge
  • A clean microfibre cloth
  • A spirit level
  • A wallpaper smoother tool
Step 1

Pattern: Initial preparation

Before applying wallpaper, your wall needs to be smooth and clean. Remove old loose wallpaper, cracking and peeling paint, nails, and screws. Make sure to sand down surfaces and fill holes and cracks on your wall.

Step 2

Pattern: Measure & cut

Measure the height of your wall, then mark the measurements on the back of the wallpaper. Cut your first strip by keeping 100 mm vertical excess for variations in the height of your wall. Refer to the specific product page to determine the match type and pattern repeats before matching the design up.

Step 3

Pattern: Paste the wall & begin hanging

After you have mixed your paste according to its instructions, paste the wall and begin hanging your wallpaper from the top downwards. Be careful when cleaning away excess paste so inks aren't rubbed off the paper.

To improve accuracy you can measure the strip width, then mark it on the wall lightly with a pencil. Use a spirit level to draw a vertical line from the ceiling to the floor by keeping the mark as a guide. 

Step 4

Pattern: Continue hanging

As you hang the wallpaper, smooth away all the ripples or bubbles using a soft, dry cloth or smoothing tool. When hanging other strips, make sure to avoid overlapping them. Match the images or patterns, and paste the wallpaper edge to edge. If you press the strips firmly, the seams will not be visible. While wallpapering, be careful with the paste, and if it gets on your wallpaper’s surface, wipe it with a clean cloth. 

Allow your wallpaper to dry at room temperature for at least a day and ensure that the room has good ventilation.

Step 1

Mural: Initial preparation

Before applying wallpaper, your wall needs to be smooth and clean. Remove old loose wallpaper, cracking and peeling paint, nails, and screws. Make sure to sand down surfaces and fill holes and cracks on your wall.

Step 2

Mural: Identify your panels

Each panel will arrive as a roll. You should unroll all panels and identify the order that they need to be hung in from left to right.

Step 3

Mural: Paste the wall & begin hanging

After you have mixed your paste according to its instructions, paste the wall and begin hanging your wallpaper from the top downwards. Be careful when cleaning away excess paste so inks aren't rubbed off the paper.

Your mural has been printed slightly larger than your dimensions to create excess. When installing your first panel, ensure to use the vertical excess. This will help with uneven walls.

Step 4

Mural: Continue hanging

As you hang the wallpaper, smooth away all the ripples or bubbles using a soft, dry cloth or smoothing tool. When hanging other strips, make sure to avoid overlapping them. Match the images or patterns, and paste the wallpaper edge to edge. If you press the strips firmly, the seams will not be visible. While wallpapering, be careful with the paste, and if it gets on your wallpaper’s surface, wipe it gently with a clean cloth. 

Allow your wallpaper to dry at room temperature for at least a day and ensure that the room has good ventilation.

Peel & Stick

For our Peel & Stick paper, you can follow the same instructions as a above. However, instead of pasting the wall, you simply peel off the release liner and apply the wallpaper to the wall. If you see any air bubbles during installation, do not rub or squeegie them out. Whilst this might look like you have removed them, they will return.

To fix air bubbles, peel up the wallpaper and reapply it until it's applied with no air bubbles present. This may take some patience, but it will be worth it in the end as you will end up with a better finish.
