HOW TO INSTALL YOUR WALLPAPER

September 13 2021

We know renovations can be hard, expensive and stressful so that’s why all Luxe Wall’s wallpaper is designed to be convenient, affordable and DIY! We will be with you every step of the way ensuring you get the best fit and style for your room. You can also customise the wallpaper to find just the right one for you. The self-adhesive backing on all of Luxe Walls wallpaper allows for easy installation, with the ability to reposition your wallpaper to halt that horrible feeling when you aren’t happy with the wallpaper has been installed.

Before installing your wallpaper, ensure your walls do not have:

  • Flat or matte paint finishes
  • Paints claiming to be washable or scrubbable
  • Paints containing teflon, surfactants and chlorinated waxes and silicones
  • Heavily textured paint
  • Oil alkyd primers and enamels
  • Existing wallpaper

When installing your wallpaper, always start on the left-hand side of your wall with panel number 1. Line your wallpaper up with the edge of the wall and the ceiling, making sure the wallpaper is level along the top. Please note, walls and doorways are not always perfectly square. If you need to overhang your first panel, don’t worry you can always trim the excess later. It is really important to get the position of the first panel correct as it will form the base of your wallpaper.

Peel 10cm of the backing paper from the back of your wallpaper, and stick it to the top of the wall. Once you are happy with the position, using your hand, gently smooth the wallpaper out with your hands. Smooth all bubbles and wrinkles out as you go. If the bubbles are too big, gently lift off your wallpaper and re-apply. Complete this process until you reach the bottom of your wall. Don’t worry about the excess – once your wall is completed you can cut this off using a sharp knife.

Line Panel 2 up next to panel 1, again ensuring it is level at the top and that the images on adjoining panels line up. Follow the same simple adhesion process used with the first panel. Complete these processes until all panels have been hung. TIP: Ensure the panels line up at your line of site. People will look at the middle of your wall, not towards the ceiling or the skirting board.

Once your wallpaper is hung, trim the excess wallpaper from the bottom and the righthand side of your wall (depending on the squareness of your walls there may or may not be excess here).
