Selecting your wallpaper does not have to be overwhelming! Before even picking up a wallpaper book or scrolling through our online store, think of an idea of what you would like to see in your space. Do you need pattern or texture, neutral or color, or a little bit of everything? We have thousands of instock options, as well as hundreds of special order paper we can get for you. If you need some help selecting, just ask us!
To estimate the amount of rolls you will need, you will need to measure the square footage of your space. Measure each surface for the width and length of the space. For obstacles (doors, windows, etc.), you will need the same measurements. The obstacles will be deducted from your total estimated square footage. Please send the information to our staff through the contact page and we will configure the amount for you!
W A L L W I TH P A P E R: To get a clean, smooth wall - steam off old wallpaper or use a large wall stripper to "shave" the paper from the wall. Paper will shave more easily when it is dry. Don't forget to fill in all holes, roughness or cracks - they will show behind the new paper!
F I N I S H E D W A L L : Prep the wall so the wall is smooth and even. Fill in any holes or cracks, so your new paper will look flawless!
M E A S U R E : Pull paper over the edge of a work table to remove curl. Select top of paper and allow at least 2 inches at the top and bottom of the strip.
C U T : When measuring the additional strips, place them face up and edge to edge before cutting to mach the patern. "Drop Pattern" paper will not match directly across paper - save paper by using alternate lengths from two different bolts.
G L U E : Lay paper face down on work surface. Apply paste to cover entire back side of paper - working from the center moving out. Fold the pasted part, but do not apply a crease! If you have a long strip fold end to center and let glue sit while applying glue to opposite end and repeat folding process.
H A N G : Hanging the first strip affects the entire space - make sure to hang it straight! Use a level to draw a straight line to be used as a guide for where the paper will be set. Bring the paper to the wall and line it up with the drawn line on the wall. Use upward diagonal strokes to smooth paper up towards the ceiling and then work your way down. Brush out all bubbles with smoothing brush. Trim the top and bottom of paper with a sharp blade and trimming guide. After paper has set, lightly run a clean roller along the seams. Wipe off any glue on the paper with a clean sponge.
