Preparing the wall

Remove old paint or wallpaper

Before applying your new wallpaper, it's crucial to prepare the wall properly by removing any existing wallpaper or paint. We highly recommend against leaving old wallpaper on the wall. If you encounter difficulty removing old wallpaper, try lightly dampening it with warm water to ease the process.

Make sure the surface is smooth and clean

Before applying your wallpaper, ensure that the surface is smooth and free from imperfections. If needed, apply putty to the wall after removing the old coating to smooth out any bumps.

For porous surfaces such as sanded walls, walls with chipboard, it's essential to apply a primer before wallpapering. Additionally, if the surface has bright colors that may show through the wallpaper, priming is recommended to ensure a flawless finish.

Wallpapering

Inspecting the Wallpaper

Before applying the wallpaper to the wall, carefully examine each strip to ensure that they are all included and free from any damage or defects.

Marking for the First Strip

It's essential to mark the wall accurately before applying the first strip of wallpaper. Using a level, tape measure, and pencil, draw a vertical line on the wall at a distance equal to the width of your wallpaper from the edge. These markings will act as a guide when positioning the first strip on the wall. Ensure the line is not too dark to prevent it from showing through the wallpaper.

Preparing the Wallpaper Paste

Pour 1.7 liters of cold water per paste package into a bucket.
Gradually add all the paste into the water while continuously stirring.
Stir the water to create a whirlpool effect.
After a 10-minute wait, remix the paste. It is now ready for use.

Please note: If you purchased glue from another manufacturer, follow the instructions provided on the package for preparation.

Applying Glue Directly to the Wall

Gradually apply glue to the wall, covering approximately the width of one strip with a slight allowance. Only apply a new portion of glue after finishing gluing a strip of wallpaper. Use a roller or brush to ensure even coverage across the entire surface of the wall. Properly covering the wall with glue is crucial to prevent bubbles from forming under the wallpaper.

Arranging the Wallpaper Strips

Arrange the wallpaper strips so that their edges fit snugly together without overlapping, and press them firmly into place. For optimal results, use a pressure roller to ensure secure adhesion. Pay close attention to aligning the pattern when applying the wallpaper and avoid getting glue on the front surface of the photo wallpaper.

Note: Prevent creases in the wallpaper to avoid potential cracks in the canvas.

Smoothing the Wallpaper

Gently smooth the strips with your hands or a pressure roller, starting from the center and working towards the edges. Any small bubbles or wrinkles will disappear as the wallpaper dries. If glue spots appear on the front surface of the wallpaper, carefully remove them with a damp cloth or sponge before the glue dries.

Attention: Avoid rubbing the surface; instead, remove the glue with gentle, light movements.

Trimming Excess Wallpaper:

After you have glued all the strips to the wall, cut off unnecessary fragments with a wallpaper trowel and a sharp clerical knife.

Allow 24 hours for the glue to fully dry before assessing the final result. During this time, ensure there are no drafts in the room.

Sit back and enjoy your refreshed space!

Note: Vinyl wallpapers are less breathable compared to non-woven varieties. Therefore, if applied to a dense surface with poor moisture absorption, they may require additional time to dry completely.
