Wallpaper installation (by yourself)

We recommend that you always have the wallpaper applied by a specialist.

If you choose to apply the wallpaper yourself or by an external party, we have some tips and handy instruction videos for you below.

Attention point! How you or a third party treat the product determines the end result. In the event of a disappointing end result, this is never covered by the warranty of the product. Please consider this in advance and discuss this with your specialist.

Check wallpaper

When the wallpaper arrives, first check the package. Then check the wallpaper for any damage. With custom wallpaper, you first look at the strips next to each other. In case of any defects, please contact us immediately. Only when everything has been checked and satisfies you will you process the product.

Read the processing instructions

The material of your wallpaper determines the correct method of processing and application. Therefore, always start by reading the supplied instructions from the supplier. Check whether the material properties match the adhesive and whether it is therefore suitable. Natural materials and textiles are difficult to apply, please consult a specialist.

Make sure you have a good surface

Before you start wallpapering, make sure the surface is flat and clean. Always remove old wallpaper. This can be done by means of water, special soaking agent or a steam engine. Wallpapering over old wallpaper is possible, if it is properly attached and completely smooth. If the old wallpaper is not attached, bubbles will form.

Remove irregularities, everything that is not flat in the wall will be reflected in the wallpaper. Sand grained walls flat. Fill holes with putty and sand it again. Make sure that the surface is even in color, with thin or light wallpaper this can shine through.

If the wall consists of plasterboard, or has it been recently plastered, make sure that it is pre-treated with a transparent primer to prevent the absorbing effect. The wall must be completely dry and pre-treated before wallpapering. Lay out the strips on the wall and paint the seams on the wall in the color of the wallpaper..

glue

The use of the correct adhesive depends on the material of the wallpaper. This concerns the carrier (backing material/backing). The type of material is always indicated on the wallpaper. It is important to check beforehand so that you are sure that the glue is suitable.
