Take your time when preparing the wallpaper for application. Any mistakes made will be painstaking and time-consuming to fix.
If the surface of your wall is bumpy, you’ll need wallpaper lining. Lining provides a smooth, even surface and strengthens your walls. Apply the lining as instructed on the packaging, and let it dry completely.
It’s now time to line up the wallpaper. If you’re using a plain colour without a print you can simply start at one end and work your way around. If you’re using printed wallpaper, start from the room’s focal point – this could be the fireplace – and move outwards in each direction, matching up the pattern as you go.
Once lined up and cut to size, start applying adhesive to your wallpaper. Give it a moment to become tacky to make it easier to work with.
