Application Instructions




Peel ‘n stick wallpaper offers an affordable, DIY-friendly alternative to traditional wallcoverings. The self-adhesive backing doesn’t require any messy paste.

Peel ‘n stick wallpaper is incredibly durable and the perfect solution for kid-friendly or high-traffic areas. It is extremely strong and best of all, you can wipe it down with a cloth, warm water, and a little bit of elbow grease if it gets dirty or little grubby hands leave their prints.

Our Peel ‘n Stick wallpaper is supplied in panels of (W)650mm by (L)3m, making it easy to handle and even easier to stick.

To ensure you purchase the correct amount of removable wallpaper, carefully measure the space, you plan to cover. Buy slightly more wallpaper than you think you’ll need to accommodate mistakes and tricky areas such as windows, doors, or tight nooks.

Supplies Needed

  • Sponge or cloth
  • Mild cleaner
  • Measuring tape
  • A spirit level
  • Pencil
  • Peel-and-stick wallpaper
  • Plastic smoothing tool
  • Utility knife/Stanley knife and scissors

If you’re doing this yourself for the first time, try choosing a flat, square wall, the more nooks, crannies, corners and bulges the wall has the more difficult it will be to get the hang of it.

1. Determine How Much Wallpaper You’ll Need to Wallpaper Your Wall.

Measure the height of each wall from the floor to the ceiling and the width of each wall from side to side with a measuring tape. Once you have the measurementspop them into the calculator.

2. Turn Off the Electricity and Remove Wall Plates With A Screwdriver.

To protect the outlets and yourself, it’s best to remove the panels to ensure a clean-looking paper installation.

3. Clean the Walls Thoroughly.

Ensure there is no dust or dirt on your wall. Dirt or dust on the wall can make the wallpaper lift from the wall. A good old-fashioned wipe-down will do.

4. Smooth Over Cracks in The Wall.

While you’ve got the chance, it’s best to smooth over the wall before you paper over it. Apply crack filler to any cracks or holes in the wall with a putty knife, then wait for it to dry. Afterward, sand it smooth with fine-grit sandpaper. Lumpy walls will make for a lumpy wallpaper, stippled or textured walls will make it difficult for the wallpaper to stick – the smoother the better.

5. Draw Guidelines on The Wall.

Using your measuring tape mark the wall along the exact width of your wallpaper, make several marks down the wall at the same distance, using a spirit level or ruler connect these dots so you have a clear guideline to apply your first wallpaper straight.

6. We supply all wallpapers with an extra couple of Centimetres on the top and bottom.

Our wallpapers have an extra couple of centimetres on the top and bottom to accommodate slightly skew walls, floors and ceilings.

7. Line Up the Peel ‘n Stick Wallpaper With The Line You Drew On The Wall.

Draw a straight line from floor to ceiling and across the top using a spirit level. Begin at the ceiling and the top right corner of the wall, leaving about 5cm hanging over the top and below the floor. Carefully line up the wallpaper (ensure it is 100% straight from ceiling to floor) and starting from the top peel away the backing and stick the top of the paper (as perfectly straight as humanly possible) to the ceiling/cornice/top of the wall and more importantly, to the linke from floor to ceiling. Using some paiters tape or masking tape to keep the paper in place will also make this step easier. Now slowly peel away more backing while flattening the freshly peeled paper to the wall using a plastic applicator.

* IMPORTANT: We’ve left a handy 2cm-3cm overlap on either side of each panel of wallpaper to help you with alignment. This also avoids the wallpaper from making gaps between panels with expansion and contraction of the walls. Ensure your next sheet overlaps and aligns perfectly before peeling and sticking.

8. Flatten the Wallpaper with a plastic card or applicator

PLEASE NOTE: Bubbles are NOT common on our wallpaper at all. Our wallpaper is thick and easy to apply. To wallpaper a room properly, you need to eliminate wrinkles as thoroughly as possible. Smooth the paper from the middle out, using enough pressure to force the bubbles out through the edges. If you do create some wrinkles inadvertently, carefully pull a piece of the paper away from the wall until you reach the wrinkle and press it out.

9. Continue Application, Matching the Pattern Appropriately.

Align the next piece to the first piece. When hanging wallpaper, it’s important to match the patterns together as closely as possible, if you’re using patterned wallpaper. Apply your next piece of wallpaper, starting at the top, making sure to overlap the white margin. Repeat as in step 7. Trim the excess from the top and bottom of each piece of paper. When you install wallpaper, do not to tear it. Use a flat hard object like a credit card to press the paper tight against the wall and cut the extra off with a Stanley knife.
