Early planning stages

Planning for the best wallcovering installation is the most important step for this whole process. The focus is to visualize how you want the final product to look. This begins by defining your area, where to buy wallpaper and also approximately how much wallpaper you will need to buy.

Considering this, take the time to accurately measure your walls in height and width, then plan to buy a little more wallpaper than you might need. This is to ensure that you have additional materials in case any mistakes are made or future wallpaper repairs.

Objectives and color selection

Next, you should ask yourself several questions related to the interior design objectives. Consider your wall design objectives when trying to select the pattern or style of wallpaper for your walls. Do you want to make the appearance of your room bigger? Are you looking to make a stark contrast to the furniture in the room following color themes?

Some examples of how to achieve this is having striped patterns as the best option to make the room appear bigger in size. If you want to add contrast, you should look for bright or dark wallcovering colors according to the tone of your room. A simple google search can give you the answers you are looking for depending on your objectives for your space.”

Wall preparation

After the planning; Having defined the objectives and purchased the appropriate amounts of wallpaper, it is time to prepare the wall or walls for installation.

What should I do?

– The first step is to sand any imperfection or non-flat surface on the wall, and any bright paint that can affect the adhesion of your wallpaper.

– Remove all light switches and electrical outlet panels, covering them with adhesive tape for safety.

– Clean the walls with a warm cloth to remove dust or marks.

– Apply a primer to protect the wall and prevent the adhesive paste you use from absorbing into it. A brush or roller can be used for the primer application, after which you must wait at least two hours to dry.  Sometimes specialty primers are required.
