Before applying the non-woven wallpaper
If you are not confident in wallpapering on your own, we recommend that you hire a professional wallpaper decorator.
Individual sheets with your desired dimensions are produced for your wallpaper motif. The lane length and the number of lanes are determined by the height and width you specify. Each lane is marked with a number. Note the sequence and start on the left with the first strip of wallpaper. Install from left to right.
Turn off the electricity and remove all outlets as well as light switches from the wall.
Make sure the wall is free of imperfections such as old wallpaper residue or holes in the plaster. In addition, the wall should be free of dust and grease, as well as uniform and neutral in colour, or match the wallpaper motif in colour. A neutral and uniform mural can be produced by roller maculation or pigmented deep primer, if required. If your wall is plastered, you need to prime it before wallpapering to prevent the wallpaper paste from being absorbed by the wall.
Draw vertical guide lines with the help of a spirit level. The first auxiliary line should be drawn with the distance of a strip of wallpaper width to the corner of the wall.
If you have laid out your wallpaper a little wider than the wall, you can also keep the distance (between the wall corner and the first guide line) a little smaller. In this way, the left corner will be wallpaper overhang, which can be cut off later. This is particularly necessary if the adjacent wall is not quite perpendicular, as this is the only way to ensure a perfect wall finish.
Carefully cut open the cardboard box and remove the rolls of wallpaper from the packaging. Unroll the wallpaper and make sure it is flawless. Carefully carry out the inspection of the wallpaper to exclude complaints.
Mix the non-woven wallpaper paste according to the instructions. Please use only specially developed brand adhesives for non-woven wallpaper. Spread the paste for the first wallpaper strip thickly and evenly directly on the wall, until slightly above the first guide line.
The first wallpaper strip is the most important. Make sure that the first strip is applied perfectly perpendicular. To do this, orient yourself to the first guide line and not to the corner of the wall. Wallpaper from top to bottom. If you ordered wallpaper with extra edge, let it overlap a few centimeters at the top edge.
Remove excess glue immediately with a dry or slightly damp sponge or cloth, otherwise it may remain visible after drying. Using a wallpaper roller or a clean, soft cloth, brush out all air pockets on the sides from top to bottom and from the inside to the outside. You can also pierce large air bubbles with a fine needle.
Spread the paste for the second strip evenly until slightly above the second guide line.
Apply the second sheet so that butt to butt there is a seamless transition. Make sure that the motif transition is as precise as possible.
Using a sharp cutter knife, cut off any excess wallpaper. You can be guided by the corner of the wall or use a cutting ruler to help you.
For sockets and light switches, press the wallpaper well and then carefully cut out the desired area with scissors or a knife.
During drying, excessive heating and drafts should be avoided, as this may result in seam opening.
If you have installed the wallpaper in a damp room, it is recommended to treat the wallpaper with an appropriate finish after drying.
