Before starting the installation process, carefully review the detailed instructions below. It's advisable to try installing a wallpaper sample first before proceeding with a larger order.

Wall Preparation

The preparation of the wall is a crucial step in the wallpaper installation process. The wall should be smooth, without any texture or rough areas, and free of any contaminants. Fill in any holes or dents and sand the surface to ensure it's flat and smooth. Clean and dry the wall before beginning the installation.

Recommended Tools:

  • Paste
  • Roller & tray
  • Spirit level
  • Drop cloth
  • Sponge/cloth
  • Pencil
  • Sharp utility knife and extra blades
  • Seam roller
  • Smoothing tool
  • Trim guide

Hanging Preparation

Your wallpaper will arrive in a roll and be divided into numbered panels according to the order in which they should be hung. Unpack the panels and lay them out, making sure that none are missing or have defects or damage. The panels should be hung from left to right and edge to edge, and it's recommended that two people install the wallpaper. To ensure the first panel is hung straight, use a spirit level, measuring tool, and pencil to make faint, vertical markings as a guide.

Apply Paste

Apply an even layer of paste directly to the wall or to the paper using a roller or brush. Cover an entire panel area with paste, ensuring there are no unpasted spots to avoid blisters under the wallpaper. If applying the paste to the paper, book the paper immediately to keep the paste moist and allow it to expand.

Paste Quantity

To determine if enough paste has been applied, you can draw on the wall with your finger. If you can draw a pattern, you have applied enough paste.

Booking the Paper

Before hanging the paper, it's necessary to book it by folding it over paste-to-paste to relax it for several minutes. This will prevent any bubbles or wrinkles from forming. Gently fold the top and bottom pasted sides together to meet in the middle, avoiding creases in the print. Allow the paper to rest for at least 3-5 minutes before hanging.

Helpful Tip

Having a flat surface and bright overhead lighting can be helpful during the installation process. You can use a flashlight or cell phone to verify that the entire length of paper is covered in paste and moisten any dry spots you find.


Begin Hanging

After the first wallpaper panel has been allowed to rest for 3-5 minutes during the booking process, lift it up and carefully unfold only the top half of the paper, keeping the white edge with the barcode information still folded.



Installing the First Panel

Begin at the top left corner and hang in a straight vertical line, making sure the left edge aligns with your vertical line and using the pencil markings as a guide. If the ceiling is not straight, start 2.5 cm above the ceiling and trim once dry for a straight and even edge. Have a friend check for level and straightness. In corners, use the edge as a guide. Once in place, unfold the bottom half of the panel and smooth down with a damp sponge or smoothing tool, removing any air bubbles by pressing gently and moving to the edges.

Adding Additional Panels

Hang the next panels, matching the pattern and image, and allowing the appropriate amount of paper to run over the top and bottom edges. Panels should be applied edge to edge without overlapping.


Press panels together firmly at the seams using a seam roller for best results. Avoid getting wallpaper paste on the front of the mural to prevent it from showing once dry. Avoid hard creases, as it may cause cracks in the print.

If there are bubbles or wrinkles, gently smooth them out or peel back the area and reapply. Note that pressing too hard may transfer ink from your hands onto other surfaces.

Trim Button, Top & Side

Once all panels are hung, carefully trim the top, bottom, and far right side of the panels using a trim guide and sharp utility knife. Take your time and make sure you have a sharp blade for best results.

How To Remove

To remove the wallpaper, moisten it and wait a few minutes, then scrape gently. You can also consult a specialist for professional advice.
