How To Apply Wallpaper

Traditional Wallpaper
  • The wall surface should be clean, dry, smooth and free from mildew.
  • If applying non pasted or non woven wall coverings, the wall surfaces should be primed with a wall covering primer.
  • Peel and Stick can be applied without a wall covering primer onto a clean and smooth surface. It can be a ceiling, a staircase, countertop or decoupage. 
  • Apply a lightweight pre-mixed vinyl adhesive to the wall covering, carefully following the paste manufacturer’s instructions. We like Roman products for our home improvements. Please ensure sufficient paste is applied to the edges of the wall covering.
  • Fold the strip slowly, glue on glue, by taking both ends to the middle of the strip. Let it sit for 3-5 minutes a technique known as booking.
  • For non-matched patterns, reverse hang alternate strips.
  • After 3 strips are hung, stand back and inspect.
  • Wash adhesive completely from the surface of the wall covering immediately after hanging each strip.
  • Enjoy your handiwork and brag to your friends and family.


Peel & Stick Wallpaper

  • Starting on the left side of your wall or surface, measure out from the corner 20.5"/52cm or 27"/68.5cm, depending upon the width of the wallpaper, then lightly mark the wall with a pencil. * If installing a feature wall, we recommend starting the installation in the middle of the wall to create symmetry. 
  • Using a level, draw a straight vertical line. This line is the guide for your first strip, so it's uber important that it is straight.
  • Peel about 12"/3.5cm of the backing away from the paper. Apply the paper to the top of the wall, allowing that 1-2 extra inches to overlap the ceiling which will be trimmed off later.
  • Align the right side of the strip with your vertical line and lightly press the edge to the wall along the line. If needed, you can reposition to ensure a vertical seam. Our wallpaper, like a good recipe, is very forgiving.
  • Working from the top to the bottom, pull the backing away from the paper as you evenly press the paper to the wall. Do not force the paper, and be careful not to pull or stretch the paper, or the pattern will not properly align.
  • To achieve best results, we recommend having one person guide the paper at the top and along the seam, while the second person holds the opposite edge away from the wall until the seams are aligned.
  • We advise that you overlap the seam between neighboring panels by 1/16"/1.5mm to avoid any shrinking that may occur due to varying room temperatures.
  • Use a wallpaper smoothing tool and moderate pressure, make your down the wall smoothing the material from the middle of the panel outwards to push out any air bubbles and ensure firm adhesion.
  • Trim off the excess material at the ceiling and baseboard with a ruler and sharp razor. Be sure to change the blade often to maintain a smooth, clean cut.
  • Repeat this process, matching the pattern of your next strip to the right edge of your previous strip and overlapping ever so slightly.



  • Slowly pull the edge from the top corner directly downward. Wallpaper can be repositioned and easily removed.



  • Wallpaper may be wiped with a damp cloth. We not recommend using excess liquid as it may damage the wallpaper.
