How to Install Your Medium Wallpaper

This is a detailed introduction and step-by-step guide on how you can install our medium wallpaper mural. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Customer Service Team who will be glad to help you at any time.

Recommended Tools

  • Rollers, brush and tray
  • Bucket
  • Paint brush (for the areas that the roller misses, e.g. along the ceiling and skirting boards)
  • Spirit level or plumb line (to make sure the wallpaper is straight)
  • Wallpaper sponge (preferably a cellulose sponge)
  • Plastic smoother tool
  • Pencil
  • Craft knife
  • Wallpaper tool and damp soft cloth

Step 1: Lay Out Your Wallpaper Mural

Unroll the wallpaper and separate the panels by cutting between the dotted lines, noting that the other panels on the roll will be upside down. Identify each panel and arrange them on the floor in installing order, starting with panel 1. Make sure that the entire wallpaper mural is oriented correctly by aligning the panel number with the top left corner of each one. Each panel is numbered in installing order from left to right.

Please note: If you are ordering more than one wallpaper mural, they may be rolled together. So, please check the image before installation. If you find out any wrong printing or inconsistencies within the print, please email us ASAP and our service team will assist you and solve your problem.

Step 2: Paste The Wallpaper Panel to The Wall

It is important to ensure that the first panel is hung vertically for a successful wallpaper installation. Use a pencil to mark the width of the panel on the wall and then place a level on the mark to draw a vertical line downwards. This will give you a clear guide when hanging the first panel to ensure it hangs vertically.

Using a roller or brush, apply the wallpaper paste directly to the wall in a smooth and even coat, covering the first marked section by a few inches. A smooth, even coat is really important to reduce the likelihood of blistering.

Step 3: Hang The First Panel

Align the first panel with the pencil line and start hanging from the top and working down. Use a plastic smoothing tool or soft sponge to carefully blot out any air bubbles or ripples. Work from the top, and allow the wallpaper to fall naturally, be careful to avoid scratching or scuffing the printed surface.

Step 4: Butt up The Second Panel

When hanging the second panel next to the first one: hang the panels edge-to-edge, as there should be no overlap at the butt joints. Visually match the design on the wall, then press the panels firmly together so that the seams are not visible. Again, smooth out any air bubbles with a wallpaper tool or soft cloth. If you get paste on the surface of the mural, just gently wipe off any excess paste from the print with a clean, soft cloth ASAP.

Step 5: Repeat Until Finish

Repeat Step 4 until you finish hanging all the panels. Use a sharp knife to trim off the excess paper at the top and bottom of each panel, and continually wipe off excess paste.

Dry at room temperature, ensuring good ventilation. If there is a heat source such as a heater on the same wall as your wallpaper mural, turn it off 24 hours before drying as this will reduce the possibility of shrinkage.
