How to Guide

Wall Preparation

1. Introduction

We believe everyone should have the ability to create a customised stunning new wallpaper.

Therefore, to get the most out of your wallpaper mural, it is important to prepare your wall correctly before you progress to install the wallpaper mural.

Before you start check out the Key Tips (on last page).

2. Plaster Walls

  1. Ensure that your plastered wall is clean and dry with no loose plaster or contaminants. Old, flaking plaster will need to be scraped and sanded to a smooth surface.

3. Painted

  1. If your wall is painted, we recommend that the wallpaper mural is installed on matt emulsion paint only.
  2. Old, flaking paint will need to be scraped and sanded to a smooth surface.
  3. For freshly painted walls, allow 2 to 3 weeks drying time before installing your wallpaper mural.

4. Wallpaper

  1. If the wall already has wallpaper adhering to it, then it will need to be removed.
  2. Once removed ensure the wall surface is smooth, flat and free of dust or other containments.

5. Wallpaper Delivery

  1. Check the delivered wallpaper mural to ensure it is not damaged due to transport etc.
  2. It is recommended that two people hang the wallpaper mural together to help achieve the best results
