How do I install and remove wallpapers?

Note: Wallpaper is only currently available to a select group of Beta customers and will be made available to the rest of our customers very soon!

Before Installation

Ensure that you correctly measure the wall and order enough wallpaper to cover the surface that requires covering. We strongly recommend you first order a wallpaper sample to ensure that the wallpaper type, scale, and design of the final order will meet your expectations 

Prepare your wall, team, and equipment

The wall should always be prepared by sanding down any rough areas and filling any possible holes. Once it is smooth and flat, it must also be cleaned to be free of any contaminants and dried. 

It may be helpful to have at least two people for the installation. Each wallpaper panel is numbered in the order they should be hung. Panels should be installed from left to right and edge to edge.

If the wallpaper is the Non-woven Paste the Wall type, glue (not included) must be applied to the wall before installing the panels. You can see the list of recommended glues in our article What Wallpaper Glues can you recommend? 

Here are some tools that may be required during installation:

  • Bucket
  • Roller & Tray
  • Spirit Level
  • Smoothing Tool
  • Drop cloth
  • Sponge / Cloth
  • Pencil
  • Sharp utility knife and extra blades
  • Wallpaper brush

Installation Instructions for your Customers with their order

At the bottom of each wallpaper panel, your customer will see a link to the wallpaper mounting instructions. This will also be available as a QR code that they can scan with their devices.

On this page, your customer will be able to see the instructions they should follow. For complete wallpaper mounting instructions, you can check out our mounting instructions here.

Removing wallpaper

Peel and Stick

It is as simple as removing a sticker. Start from the corner and peel away from the wall gently.

Prepasted water activated

Start from the corner of one panel and peel away from the wall gently. You can use a damp sponge to help reactivate the adhesive as it will release more easily. Wipe the wall with a damp sponge to remove all remaining adhesive residue when the wallpaper is taken down from the wall.

Paste the wall

​​Moisten the wallpaper, wait for a few minutes, then scrape it gently. You can also consult a specialist to get professional advice.
