Peel and Stick wallpaper is not recommended for use on walls with texture or painted with scrubbable or No-VOC paints.
Walls with washable or scrubbable paint, or No-VOC paint, may not allow for strong bonding of wallpaper to wall. To promote better adhesion under these conditions:
Hanging wallpaper is a two-person job. Find a meticulous friend to help and plan to complete the installation in one day to ensure a steady and consistent hand.
Prepare your installation tools to include the following:
Remove switch and socket covers, and window treatment hardware
Each wallpaper panel is printed with a slight overlap of ~0.5″ (~1+ cm) along the right edge to help during installation. This overlap may vary per roll so visually matching the design is necessary.
IMPORTANT: If your installation space contains different wall heights, we still recommend ordering all your rolls at the longest wall height. Purchasing and installing rolls of different lengths can be very tricky, as you may experience issues aligning the patterns due to the vertical design repeat.
Peel and Stick Wallpaper can initially be repositioned during the installation process. To adjust, slowly peel the paper from the wall and then reapply.
It is always a great idea to search online for videos with installation hacks when tackling trickier spots on your walls.
Once you are certain you know how much paper you need to install around the molding edges of these room features, you can trim away the bulk to help ease the adhesion. Wait until all wallpaper panels are installed before trimming the final excess to the edges.
Installing around interior and exterior corners can challenging. Rather than trimming right into the corner, it is easier to control installation so that a least a few inches of paper will wrap around any corners.
You can install over these and trim appropriately when you finish the installation. Always be careful working around live electrical outlets.
Once all panels are in place, trim the edges with a sharp, fresh blade. We often recommend a snap off knife with good stability, such as the Olfa SAC-1 Graphic Cutter.
Using a straight edge at the ceiling, across baseboards and vertically down corners will ensure a straight cut without edge walking.
Clean with a damp microfiber cloth and mild detergent dish soap. Do not aggressively rub.
Temperature, humidity, and wall preparation will determine how long the wallpaper can remain in place and still be easily removed. A fair estimate for longevity is one to two years. Once the adhesive has hardened, or if the paper was installed in drier conditions, your surface may still require touch up after removal.
Pulling down on the paper, rather than pulling it away from the wall, will help reduce unnecessary removal of paint/primer.
