HOW TO INSTALL LUXE CRUSHED STONE WALLPAPER

December 16 2016
  1. After ensuring a clean, smooth wall surface (as outlined above), start on the left-hand side of your wall with panel number C1. Line your custom wallpapers 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’s really important to get the position of the first panel correct as it will form the base of your wallpaper.
  2. Line your wallpaper up with the edge of your wall and the ceiling, place your textured custom wallpapers in the desired position and tape to the wall with masking tape. Peel the backing paper down 10 cm and gently smooth a clean light cloth over the wallpaper allowing it to stick to the wall (don’t rub too hard or you may damage the print). Smooth all bubbles and wrinkles out as you go. If the bubbles are too big, gently lift off your wallpaper and re-apply. Alternatively puncture the bubbles with a straight pin and re smooth. Complete this process until you reach the bottom of your wall. Don’t worry about the excess – once your wall is complete you can cut this off using a sharp knife.
  3. Line panel C2 up next to panel C1, again ensuring it is level at the top and that the images on adjoining panels line up. There is a 10mm overlap on panels C2 and subsequent panels to make this easier. 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 sight. People will look at the middle of your wall, not towards the ceiling or the skirting board.

  4. Once your custom wallpapers are hung, use a sharp Stanley knife to trim the excess wallpaper from the bottom and the right hand side of your wall (depending on the squareness of your walls there may or may not be excess here).
