Make sure your wall is clean, dry and smooth before installing your patterned wallpaper. Remove any traces of old wallpaper and any patches of dirt, grease, dust or mold that may affect the wallpaper glue.
To easily prepare any wall surface for your wallpaper use a Wallpaper Lining Paper to create a more even surface. Wallpaper Lining Paper smooths out any rough textures and covers any marks on your wall, covering any imperfections. Lining wallpaper should be allowed to dry out completely before hanging your pattern wallpaper.
Before you install your wallcovering, if needed, paint your wall a light neutral colour before as dark colours may show through. However, your freshly painted surfaces need time to dry thoroughly before installing your wallpaper on top. Please look at the paint manufacturer’s instructions for guidelines before you starting wallpapering.
