What you’ll need:
- Stanley or utility knife
- Removable wallpaper
- Wide scraper
- Measuring tape
- Spirit level
What to do:
Measure wallpaper to fit the space you need, trim edges but allow 100mm extra for each strip.
Clean wall with warm soapy water and allow to dry. Fill in any holes or cracks as these will be visible through the paper.
If you’re covering a big space and need multiple sheets of paper using a pencil and the spirit level to outline sections.
Start from 1 corner, peel back the self-adhesive layer and position at the top of the wall. Start at the top and use the wide scraper to smooth out any air bubbles.
Note: work vertically not horizontally as this may twist the paper. If you notice that the sheet has been placed in the wrong position remove the whole sheet and start again rather than trying to reposition.
Use a sharp scalpel to trim overhang and enjoy!
