Does Peel And Stick Wallpaper Ruin Paint?

If peel and stick wallpaper are removed from a freshly painted wall, it can damage the paint. Because of this, you should wait at least 3,5 weeks after painting a wall to apply removable wallpaper.

Is Peel And Stick Wallpaper Expensive?

 

Not at all! Peel and stick wallpaper is one of the more affordable wall covering options. In addition to the panels being budget-friendly, homeowners will not have to spend money on additional things like glue, brushes for the glue, or tools to scrape the wallpaper off.
      Is Peel And Stick Wallpaper Easy To Apply?

      Yes! Simply remove the backing, and stick the wallpaper panels to the wall. Adding a pop of color or re-decorating a room is that easy. Removal is also easy. Just peel up a corner, and then peel off the wallpaper panels. 

      Is Peel And Stick Wallpaper A Good Idea For Renters?

      Our removable wallpaper is perfect for renters! It lets you create the look that you love in a damage free way that your landlord will appreciate. Before moving out, simply peel off the wallpaper to reveal a beautiful wall.

      Can I Customize The Size Of My Wallpaper Panels?

        Please take a moment to read through this guide before hanging, it will help ensure a successful installation of your chosen design. It is important that you understand the entire process before you start. If you are unsure of any of the steps, please get in touch with our customer service team who will be happy to help.

        For optimal adhesion of your WALLFLORA peel and stick wallpaper, ensure the surface is smooth, clean, and dry. Remove any dirt, dust, grease, mildew, or ink stains to prevent adhesion issues. If dealing with heavily textured or damaged walls, consider using a heavy-duty wallpaper liner. We advise having two people for installation to ensure smooth application—so team up and enjoy the process!

        Pre-Installation Checklist

        1. Clean the wall thoroughly with a microfiber cloth.
        2. Remove nails, screws, and fill in cracks.
        3. Switch off electricity and remove socket/switch covers.
        4. Sand rough areas smooth.
        5. Maintain room temperature at 68°F (20°C) during installation.
        6. Let wallpaper acclimate in room for 24 hours before applying.
        7. If walls are freshly painted, wait 4 weeks before applying wallpaper. If paint has washable coating, prime with PVA-based primer or regular emulsion paint and let dry before hanging.

        Tools you will need

        1. Microfiber cloth
        2. Measuring tape
        3. Spirit level
        4. Pencil
        5. Exacto knife or paper knife
        6. Triangle ruler
        7. Plastic squeegee smoother with felt edge
        1. Unroll the wallpaper or mural and separate the panels. Arrange them in hanging order from left to right on the floor. For murals, use the numbers on the back of each panel, which are always positioned at the bottom to ensure correct orientation. Repeating patterns can be installed in any order.
        2. Once your wallpaper or mural is laid out, align the design to ensure the image or pattern matches before proceeding with installation.

        Line up the first panel

        Start from the left side of your wall. Use a tape measure and spirit level to mark where Panel 1 should be positioned. With a pencil create a vertical plumb line from floor to ceiling, then mark a horizontal line 19” from the wall with 1”-2” overhang on the left side of Panel 1. This ensures the first panel is hung straight, vital for successful installation.

        Take time to ensure accuracy, as walls are never perfectly straight!

        Install the first panel

        1. With your partner's assistance, peel about a third of the backing paper from the first panel. Align the top right edge with the marked plumb line, leaving a 2” overhang at the top to prevent gapping on uneven walls and ceilings.
        2. Once the first panel is straight, continue removing the lining paper slowly while working with the felt-tipped squeegee to apply pressure gradually from the middle, moving downward and outward. Avoid creasing the wallpaper by smoothing gently and evenly. Smoothing diagonally helps remove trapped air.
        3. If repositioning is necessary, gently remove and restick the panel until straight.

        Butt up the panels

        When hanging multiple panels, align the edges tightly together without overlapping!

        1. Peel about a third of the backing paper and, with assistance, visually match the design down the length of the wall. Once aligned, firmly press the panels together to conceal the seams without overlapping. Smooth out any air bubbles using the felt-tipped squeegee or a soft cloth.
        2. Proceed to remove the remaining backing paper and carefully smooth the wallpaper until fully installed.

        Repeat until finished

        1. Repeat the previous steps for all panels until wallpaper is fully installed.
        2. Use a triangle ruler and sharp blade to trim excess from final drop and top/bottom of all drops.
        3. Firmly smooth wallpaper with felt-tipped squeegee to remove air pockets and ensure bonding to wall. Repeat this step one week after installation for optimal results.

        Allow for drying at room temperature with adequate ventilation.
