Installation Instructions

Preparation

Inspect your wall for any defects. Start with a smooth clean surface. Remove any picture hooks or switch plates.

HOT TIP: This should be an enjoyable process.

Start from left

Start from the left with wallpaper panel indicated number “1” on reverse, and then sequentially as per your labelled wallpaper panels.

HOT TIPS: TAKE your time. It’s important Panel 1 is positioned correctly as this sets the bases for your wall. Ensure its level at the top! If adjoing another wall or doorway you may need to slightly overhang panel 1 on the left side and trim later if the walls / door are not perfecly square.   

If you're covering two walls that meet at right angles (as seen in this photo). Start where indicated on left of right wall and work right to left on wall 1. 

Prepare to stick

Peel back the backing sheet on the floor as indicated on the reverse side of Panel 1.

HOT TIP: Do not remove the entire backing sheet. Crease the peel back with pressure so it sits flat.

Panel 1

Line up the top edge with your ceiling or cornice. Smooth it onto the wall with your hands. Ensure it’s square. If you are butting into another wall, use the vertical left hand edge as your square. If not, allow the panel to run off the left hand edge slightly and trim later.

 

Removing the backing sheet

Slowly and evenly peel back the backing sheet. Continue to smooth on with your hands. Your install buddy can slowly remove the backing sheet during this process. Work your way down and outwards to remove any bubbles.

HOT TIPS: Use your hands so you can feel any imperfections.

Simply let wallpaper fall naturally into place. Dont try and stretch into place. If alignment is out, simply reposition panel.   

Wrinkles and bubbles

Smooth all wrinkles and bubbles. Avoid using too much pressure as you may damage the print. All bubbles and wrinkles should just rub out. If they don’t, slowly remove the effected area and re apply.

Additional panels

All additional panels are to applied as per panel 1. REMEMBER, all vertical drop on additional panels have a 10mm overlap. Simply align image at top, whilst your install buddy helps you align at base. If your roof line is square you will find this a very simple process.

Hot Tip: If you're installing a detailed image or pattern. Align the panel at the top the best you can and smooth onto the wall about 25cm from the top. Then pull peel back the backing sheet to the middle of the panel and align the image with the adjoining panel from the centre. Once centre is aligned return to the top and pull back the panel to the centre alignment and smooth onto the wall from centre back up to the top (Keep back of panel from adhering onto itself). 

Trimming

When all panels have been adhered, use a sharp knife to remove any excess print. You should have approx 25mm at base and on the end panel.

HOT TIP: Ensure your knife is sharp.
