Common Installation Questions
Should I hire a professional to install my wallpaper? Do you have any recommendations?
While our paper is designed to be installation-friendly, we do recommend hiring a professional wallpaper installer. If you need recommendations, we suggest visiting this professional website:
What condition should my walls be in before installation? Do I need to prep anything?
Please be sure that your walls are clean, dry, smooth, and free of debris. Priming is recommended for best results. If you decide to prime your walls, make sure that your walls are completely dry before installing wallpaper. Remove all old wallpaper. Do not try to install your mural over dark paint, as the color may show through our paper.
What supplies do I need for installation?
You will need a measuring tape, scissors, plastic sheeting, an automatic water sprayer or spray bottle, warm (not hot) water, a natural sponge, a pencil, a level, Craft Knife with extra blades, and a plastic wallpaper smoothing tool. You may need a step stool or ladder, depending on the height of your walls.
Please avoid using cellulose sponges to wipe down your paper. If you have a metal smoothing tool, you may use this to trim the wallpaper only, but DO NOT use a metal tool to smooth the paper as metal will damage the paper.
Using a drop cloth underneath your plastic sheeting is an option, but it will ensure that your floors are completely protected. A worktable can be very helpful if you do not have a lot of space. Additionally, wearing an apron or tool also works well for keeping the tools you need in one handy place.
I’m nervous…do you have any tips for installing wallpaper for the first time?
Don’t be shy about watching our installation video multiple times. Most of our customers find that watching an installation from start to finish a few different times really helps.
Take your time and be sure that your first panel is as straight and level as humanly possible – this will start you off on the right foot and help the rest of your installation feel like a breeze.
There’s also no need to worry so much! Our panels can be readjusted for up to ten minutes after being placed, so if you notice right away that one panel isn’t straight, you can fix it and move on.
Lastly, avoid trying to cut corners by using the wrong tools. Wallpaper can be a beautiful addition to your home, and by using the right tools, taking your time, and having a friend to help, you can ensure that installation will go smoothly as well.
Can I wallpaper my ceiling?
You may wallpaper your ceiling as long as your ceiling is clean, smooth, primed, and dry. Any texture, such as stucco, will not work. Be sure to saturate your paper with enough water during installation and book it for at least ten minutes – this will ensure that you’ve properly activated the glue and the paper will adhere to your ceiling nicely.
