Wall decoration instructions

Standard wallpaper, Premium wallpaper, Washable coated wallpaper

  1. Read the instructions before you start hanging, this applies to decorators and professionals. Check carefully if the product has any errors or defects BEFORE starting to hang the wallpaper. Place all wallpaper panels on the floor and in the correct order (sometimes panels do not come in the correct order). Check that all panels match, and that you are happy with the design, colours and quality. Once they are attached to the wall you may be waiving your right of withdrawal. You cannot be reimbursed for any costs incurred in hanging or removing the items.

  2. Your wall should be clean, dry and smooth, free of dust and dirt. Wait 4-6 weeks before hanging if the wall has been recently painted or plastered, otherwise the adhesive may not bond properly. If the wall has been painted with (shimmering) silk paint, it should first be sanded with sandpaper. We recommend that you prime the wall with a primer before you start wallpapering.

  3. Mark the walls with a pencil and spirit level so that you can apply the strips straight on.

  4. Affix the paste to the wall. Using a brush or a roller, spread a thin, even layer of paste on the wall where the strip will be placed. Do this one strip at a time, as the adhesive may dry before you have finished placing them all. Attach the strip to the wall.

  5. We recommend that you use two people to attach the strips. Try to avoid paper tears and creases. Do NOT fold the paper strips for fastening.

  6. When the strip is attached, gently smooth it down using a dry sponge or a rubber roller to remove air bubbles. Attach the next strips carefully so that they line up with the image. No overlap required. If necessary, remove excess adhesive by means of a slightly dampened cloth. Be careful not to put too much pressure on the paper.

  7. Allow to dry for 24 hours at a constant temperature of approximately 20 degrees Celsius. Important: Close all windows and doors and turn off air conditioning so that the wallpaper does not dry too quickly. Drying too quickly can cause the strips to deform or break.

  8. When it has dried, trim the excess wallpaper using a SHARP knife and a straight edge. Caution: Paper may tear when still wet.

Self-adhesive wallpaper

  1. Lay all the panels in the correct order on the floor. Check that all panels correspond correctly and that you are happy with the design, colour and quality. In case of problems please contact us immediately. Once they have been fitted, your right to return them may cease to apply.

  2. Make sure your wall is clean, free of dust (very important!), and smooth. If the wall has already been wallpapered, you should remove this first. For a freshly painted or plastered wall, you should wait 4 weeks.

  3. Mark your wall with a tape measure, spirit level and pencil. Mark the centre line first, then lines for each panel to assist with hanging.

  4. Using the markings, position the first panel straight and use the masking tape to tape it to the wall (we recommend starting in the middle). Let the top part hang down and carefully peel off the masking tape. Using scissors, cut away the band of masking paper.

  5. Smooth the upper part, from the fold, upwards using a window squeegee or dry sponge, to attach the panel. Remove the masking tape and carefully peel down the masking paper, while holding the panel as close to the wall as possible and continuing to smooth it down. We recommend that you ask a second person to assist.

  6. Repeat steps 4 & 5 to attach each panel. Panels should not overlap. If you make a mistake or there is an air bubble you can loosen and reposition as needed.

  7. Once your mural is installed you can carefully cut away excess pieces from the sides and bottom with a sharp knife.
