Instructions for hanging wallpaper

We do not recommend working at temperatures below 10 degrees Celsius or with humidity above 65%.

1. Before hanging wallpaper:
In order to avoid mistakes when hanging wallpaper, please verify the purchased wallpaper before you begin work. Before removing the wallpaper from its packaging, check again that the product number and lot (color) are the same on all of your rolls. If the pattern or color (lot) of a roll does not match, contact the store. Only rolls in their original packaging may be returned. Follow these recommendations and the instructions on the label. Wallpaper with defects discovered after it has been applied cannot be returned.
2. Surface preparation:
The material to which wallpaper is applied must be clean, dry, and solid. Concrete walls must first be plastered, smoothed, and primed. Only special primer formulations or wallpaper adhesive should be used for priming.
3. Proper adhesive selection:
Use high-quality adhesive suitable for the given type of wallpaper.
4. Installation procedure:
4.1. Remove the packaging from the first roll. Before cutting the roll, carefully check the wallpaper for factory defects.
4.2. Read the instructions included in the rolls of wallpaper, and follow all of the instructions for hanging the specific type of wallpaper.
4.3. The label on each roll of wallpaper indicates or describes (using international symbols) how to lineup the wallpaper pattern. Cut the wallpaper into strips, accounting for the repetition of the pattern and making sure that the pattern matches fully before cutting. Number each strip, starting from the starting wall, in the order they are cut from the roll. The strips of wallpaper must be hung in the same order they are cut from the roll.
4.4. Before hanging the first strip, use a plumb bob to measure the vertical line from which the wallpaper will be hung. Start hanging the wallpaper from the far corner of the room.
4.5. Hang the first 3 strips and make sure you are satisfied with the quality of the applied wallpaper. Once wallpaper has been hung, claims related to installation cannot be accepted.
4.6. Once you are convinced that the quality of the applied roll is satisfactory, proceed to hang the rest of the wallpaper. Do not cut the roll until you have visually inspected the wallpaper. Do not open the next roll's packaging until you have verified the quality of the previous roll.
5. Hanging paper wallpaper:
5.1. Choose a cellulose adhesive that is designed for ordinary wallpaper and must be diluted.
5.2. Apply adhesive to the back side of the wallpaper, especially the edges. Roll up the cut pieces and let them stand for several minutes to allow the adhesive to be absorbed.
5.3. Place a strip on the wall and remove bubbles using a special spatula or rubber roller. Glue the strips end-to-end. Carefully use a special roller to smooth out the seams. Be sure to use a wet rag to remove excess adhesive before it dries. Remember that if adhesive dries on the wallpaper's face side, then spots may remain on the pattern. During drying, maintain a constant temperature in the room and avoid drafts.
5.4. For the best adhesion of edges, apply additional adhesive to the wall at the wallpaper seams.
6. Hanging self-adhesive wallpaper:
If you purchased self-adhesive wallpaper, keep in mind that hanging such wallpaper requires well-prepared walls. If you are unsure of the quality of wall preparation, when hanging use ordinary adhesive suitable for the given type of wallpaper, in accordance with step 5 of these instructions. If you decide to hang the wallpaper using the self-adhesive layer, place a strip of wallpaper face down in a tub of cold water for the period of time specified by the manufacturer. Carefully remove the wallpaper and make sure that both the front and back sides are completely wet. The time required for soaking the wallpaper may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer - see the instructions attached to the roll.
7. Hanging non-woven wallpaper:
To hang wallpaper with non-woven backing (fleece), place an adequate amount of adhesive suitable for this type of wallpaper directly on the wall and then apply a strip of wallpaper to the wall.
8. Hanging wallpaper decorated with metallic paint:
If you purchased wallpaper whose design includes metallic paint (bronze, silver), only use a methyl-cellulose adhesive suitable for the given type of wallpaper.
