There are some tasks that you might need to do before hanging your own wallpaper. Check our list to ensure your walls are fully prepared for background. With this guide you’ll get the best finish possible and avoid any nasty surprises further into the project.

Have you eliminated any existing background?

Doing so provides you with a smooth finish and avoid air bubbles and creases appearing when you hang on the new wallpaper. Our guide on the best way best to get rid of background will help you through this undertaking.

Are your walls freshly painted?

If so, have you sealed them together with wall sealer? Additionally, it aids the slide of the background, useful once you’re fitting patterns or dangling it in awkward areas like window recesses.

Have you lined the walls with lining paper?

Hanging lining paper averts the new background from shrinking when it’s hung, which leads to gaps between the lengths of paper. You may also need to hang lining paper if your walls have some stains or tiny imperfections at the surface, since it will help to disguise this.

Have you got sufficient background?

Our Wallpaper Calculator helps to estimate the amount of wallpaper you’ll want for your project. When you measure the height and duration of the walls you wish to wallpaper, additionally measure the windows and doors – the calculator will do the calculations for you. Allow extra for wastage. We recommend 10% additional, and any unopened rolls can be returned (see terms and conditions). Additionally, allow for additional when using paper using a large repeat pattern — the pattern repeat is usually stated on the roster label or product information.

Are all the rolls of wallpaper the identical batch number?

Make certain all the rolls have the identical batch number printed on the tag, as the colors and in certain cases, the finish, can differ between batches.

Have you planned how you are going to hang the background?

We recommend hanging background vertically unless the routine needs it to be hung horizontally. If hanging over lining paper, hanging it in the opposite direction to the liner paper means the tiles will not fall at the same area and make ridges.

Do you have some fixings about the walls?

Mark the position of each one by pushing a matchstick (together with the head broken off) into the plug. Leave it slightly proud so that you are able to find the hole and then reuse it later.
