We often get asked for advice on how best to install our mural wallpaper. We've put together this step by step guide to help you with helpful tips and tricks.
In the guide below, we tell you what you'll need, getting started and how to install the first panel and line it up and then how best to move on to the additional panels.
Finally we give tips on how to trim and fine tune.
Please ensure your wall has a smooth, clean and dry surface that is free from any fixtures. If your surface is dry and absorbent, you may need to paint it or seal it with a water based primer-sealer.
The wall mural is supplied in ‘drops’ normally of approx 1metre wide. Carefully unpack each of the ‘drops’and lay them out in order.
Getting the first drop in place correctly is the key to a successful installation. Choose whether you prefer to start with the far left or far right hand panel.
Start by measuring the width of the first drop. This measurement can be used to draw a vertical line, using your spirit level or a plum line, from the edge of the wall. This will ensure that you install your first drop in a perfectly vertical position.
Because the paper is pre-pasted be careful not to wipe glue off the edges.
When all panels have been adhered, carefully trim the top and bottom of your panels plus the far left
and far right sides, using a straightedge. Don’t rush this and ensure you have sharp blade to achieve the best results.
If required, apply a small amount of paste or adhesive between any joints that need it to prevent curling or to edges to make sure the mural is fixed to the wall surface.
Stand back and admire your wall. If you have any questions, please give us a call anytime.
