How to hang our wallpaper
- Walls should be dry, clean and even.
- Remove any old wallpaper and loose paint.
- Roughen painted surfaces with sandpaper.
- For best results we recommend that walls are cross lined using a good quality lining paper. Sizing the lining paper will aid adhesion.
- Lining should be allowed to dry out completely before hanging the wallcovering.
Pasting and Hanging
- This is a paste the wall product. The decorator should paste the wall and not the back of the wallcovering.
- A good quality, solvent free, fungicide protected ready-mixed ‘tub’ adhesive – specifically for paste the wall non-woven papers should be used.
- Paste should be evenly applied to the wall to hang one length at a time, to an area slightly wider than width of the paper.
- Butt joints and use a decorators brush to smooth down the wallcovering, working from the centre to the edges to express air bubbles.
- Avoid squeezing paste out of the joints and ensure paste does not get onto the brush or roller.
- No paste should be allowed to come into contact with the surface and hands should be kept clean and dry whilst hanging the wallcovering.
- Paste will damage the surface. The company cannot accept responsibility for marks or damage caused by paste.
- Should any paste have been allowed to come into contact with the surface, it should be lightly sponged whilst still moist, using a clean damp sponge.
- Wide width wallpapers, grasscloth and textile wallcoverings are supplied untrimmed with a 10mm overlap to each edge for double cut on installation. The selvedges should be removed with scissors prior to hanging to allow pattern matching. The overlap should be cut through (both drops) with a sharp blade and metal edge at a slight angle (mitre) – use a new blade for each drop as a dull blade will tear the wallpaper.
- Remove both trimming strips and brush flat (allowing for the angle of the cut) for a perfect join.
