Wallpaper Installation Instructions

About Your Wallpaper

Our wallpaper is high performance and features a smooth white finishing, yielding crisp patterns.  It is composed of a wood pulp/natural fiber containing FSC sourced materials and is an eco-friendly and lightweight choice for wallcoverings. The wallpaper requires standard wallpaper paste to be hung. 

The wallpaper is 52 inches wide, untrimmed, and requires professional installation.  As all wallpaper sales are final, we cannot accept responsibility for any errors made while installing.  

How to Measure Your Space

In determining the square footage of your space, measure the height and length of the entire area including windows and doors.  Do not include ceiling molding and baseboards in your measurement. 

If your footage is between whole measurements, round up.

Multiply the height of the wall in feet by the length of the wall in feet and you have the square footage of a single wall.  Repeat for each wall and add together for total square footage.  

Consider padding your order with 10-20% more wallpaper than you actually need. For continuity, ordering extra paper can help with installation adjustments and future dye-lot issues for replacing a portion as needed.  

How to Install 

All hanging surfaces must be smooth, clean, dry and structurally intact before applying wallpaper. We recommend priming your surface with a permeable, mold inhibiting wallcovering primer. 

Measure the wall height, allowing for pattern matching, and add 4 inches. Cut the paper with a sharp, new blade every time. It will overlap onto the ceiling and the base approximately 2 inches. 

Apply the adhesive to the back using a paint roller. Cover completely, especially near the edges. Gently fold each pasted end towards the middle so that the adhesive backs touch.  This is called booking. Allow to relax for ten minutes and be careful not to crease the paper in any way.  

Line up the patterns at eye level and use a wallcovering brush or plastic scraper to smooth the wallpaper onto the wall. With a sponge, wipe off excess paste from the face of the wallcovering. 

Overlap the second strip over the seam of the first. Tape seam underneath with painters tape while measuring to avoid getting paste on the second strip. Seams should be vertical, have a tight fit, and be free from air and paste bubbles. Seams should not be located closer than 6” to corners. 

Repeat this process along the wall, making adjustments for windows, doors and wall switches.
