HOW TO

INSTALL

The installation of your printed mural or wallpaper is simple and does not require experience in laying wallpaper. It is however better for two people to work together to more easily align the patterns.
This information has been supplied in good faith, but without guarantee, and on the understanding that the installer will have decorating knowledge. We would recommend professional assistance to achieve the best results when hanging our wallcoverings. –

INSTALLATION STEPS

Prepare your surface

We all want to start off on the right foot! Before you get going on your DIY wallpaper projects, let’s make sure you are starting with a clean, smooth wall. It’s important to keep in mind that any dents, dings, leftover wall hanging hook holes, small cracks, will show up even when wallpaper is applied.

Ensure electrical outlets are off, light switch covers are removed, wall fixtures are taken down, and be sure to take out any nails or screws. We encourage you to sandpaper or spackle any wall blemishes or imperfections prior to installation.

Starting with a smooth wall will not only ensure a perfect finish for your wallpaper, but will also make the final product look totally profesh! (No Pinterest fails here!)

Make your mark

This step is small, but oh-so important! Make sure to check your entire wallpaper carefully before you begin installation.

Unroll the wallpaper and separate the panels. Measure the width of the rolls, you’ll need to keep that number in mind when you’re measuring placement for your first panel.

Start on the left side of your wall and measure out the width of your wallpaper (remember that number we just talked about?) Using a pencil and your straight edge ruler, make a level, vertical line. This is your guide for your very first panel of wallpaper – Make sure it’s level and straight!

Measure twice, cut once

Now, lay out the panels on your floor and arrange in hanging order (left to right). Make sure to make any overlap with a pencil. Make the installation process easier and more efficient for yourself by pre-cutting your strips to wall height (leaving an extra inch or two (3 to 5 cm) for trimming) and making sure any design from panel-to-panel lines up before cutting! *Don’t forget to align your design from panel to panel prior to cutting and hanging!

Prepare the panel and start peeling, and paneling

Now it’s time to begin – turn over the first panel and peel about 12’’ (30 cm) backing away. Apply the paper to the top of your wall and lightly press the edge to the wall along the mark. Working from top to bottom, evenly press the paper to your wall. Use a plastic smoother, working back and forth to push out any air bubbles, slowly work your way down. * Be careful not to pull or stretch the material or the pattern will not align. Our wallpaper is removable and temporarily repositionable. If you find your first panel is not straight or positioned incorrectly, you will have a small window to correct it without losing the panel. 

Overlapping your wallpaper

Repeat step 4 with your second panel and wallpaper. Remember, the panels are printed to overlap half an inch! Repeat procedure, making sure you are matching the image and adjusting the position until the pattern matches completely.

Repeat until finished

Repeat steps 4 and 5 until you are finished. Trim off any excess material from the ceiling and baseboard with a straight edge and sharp razor knife. 

TA-DA!

Stand back, take a sip of coffee and admire your beautiful DIY artmurale wallpapered surface.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

If your wall has been repainted, allow the paint to dry for seven days before installing your mural or wallpaper.

We cannot be held responsible for the results of the installation if you make a mistake or if your wall has not been properly prepared.

Do not assume that the wallcovering will come off the roll the correct way up. Always refer to the pattern book or check with retailer. Examination before hanging is the buyer’s responsibility. No claim can be accepted for hanging incorrect wallcoverings or after wallcoverings have been cut and hung showing defects which were apparent at the time of hanging.

WALLPAPER

CALCULATOR

Calculating how much wallpaper you will need is easy, just follow these simple steps and you are on your way!

HELPFUL INFO BEFORE YOU START:

1 foot = 12 inches.
Roll width = 26.5 inches.

STEP 1

Measure the length of your wall. When ordering the wallpaper, make sure the length you choose is at least the length of your wall.

STEP 2

Measure the width of your wall. Divide your wall’s width by 26.5 inches.

Example: If your wall’s width is 10 feet, this is 120 inches. Divide your wall width by 26.5 inches.

120 inches / 26.5 inches = 4.5
